Hunter Biden deadbeats IRS on $112,000 in taxes from his Burisma 'earnings'

Hunter Biden, who pulled in some $80,000 a month in a no-show job as a board member for Ukrainian gas giant Burisma, seems to have a problem paying his taxes on his "earnings" from it.

According to the Daily Caller:

The IRS placed a tax lien on Hunter Biden seeking $112,805 in unpaid taxes from 2015, according to records the Daily Caller News Foundation obtained.

The federal agency issued the previously unreported lien in November 2018 and it seeks unpaid taxes for a year in which Biden, the son of former Vice President Joe Biden, served on the boards of the Ukrainian natural gas company Burisma Holdings and the Chinese private equity firm BHR Partners.

“We have made a demand for payment of this liability, but it remains unpaid,” the IRS stated in the lien notice, which it filed with the Washington, D.C., Recorder of Deeds. “Therefore, there is a lien in favor of the United States on all property and rights to property belonging to this taxpayer for the amount of these taxes.”

You'd think someone making that much cash as a "board member" would have a minimal grip on the tax obligations that come of it. But based on Biden junior's history, it appears to have been another case of "and when the money keeps rolling in, you don't ask how," or, Evita stuff. We all know how well that worked out for Argentina.

The thing is, it signals how significant a life of privilege young Hunter had, given that he felt free to do this, based on an assumption that nothing would ever happen to him. He was a princeling, a child of privilege, and just as he admitted he wouldn't have gotten his Burisma board positions "if my name wasn't Biden," he also thought it pretty well gave him a get-out-of-jail free card on taxes.

Perfect family to have in the White House, right? Just the people to raise your taxes as they avoid paying their own. As Leona Helmsley famously said: Little people pay taxes.

It's actually very surprising that Biden junior hasn't been sanctioned any harder than a lien for the unpaid taxes - ordinary Americans who pull such stunts at those levels get their properties and incomes seized.

And young Biden was just recently spotted trotting around at The Grove, a high-dollar Los Angeles mall, with the New York Post's Page Six noting that he's been eating pretty well these days. 

More to the point, he's been living well. He's since moved into a Hollywood Hills mansion and is living the celebrity lifestyle these days. Page Six also reported:

A stone-faced Hunter climbed into the driver’s seat of a silver, late-model, four-door Porsche Panamera — which costs at least $92,000 new — leaving Melissa to open the passenger door herself.

Hunter and his wife live in the same Hollywood Hills ZIP code as stars such as Halle Berry and Ben Affleck. The couple’s current digs are worth $2.5 million, The Post recently reported.

Which is strange stuff, given that he's told a judge in Arkansas that he's out of money and has no job in the case of a stripper's paternity suit, yet he lives as he lives on either his no-show job payouts or else somebody else's money. It's strange stuff. Why he hasn't had the IRS swat team swoop down on him for massive tax violations like these is a mystery. But it can't come as a surprise that this junior with a no-show job doesn't pay his taxes to the feds either. The disgraced ex-Navy officer with a politically connected dad is probably is most fit to be a fry cook, who only pays taxes if someone takes them out of his paycheck for him. Fool and his money. But why he gets away with this behavior is something that bears more investigation.
