Swizz Beatz Facing $2.2 Million Tax Lien
Just a month after landing in headlines for announcing that he was engaged and expecting with Alicia Keys, Swizz Beatz is making news again---this time for reportedly owing the state of New York over $2.2 million in back taxes.
The IRS has filed a $652,727 lien against Swizzy, real name Kasseem Dean, on June 3 stating that he owed income taxes from 2008.
The tax troubles not only affect him but his ex-wife Mashonda who is included in a tax warrant that claims the ex-couple owes $162,300.
The news comes at the hands of the Detroit News who says that in addition to the $162,300 in back taxes, the couple owes $556,986 for 2007 income taxes and $842,645 for income taxes in 2006.
Swizzy has yet to release a statement on his reported tax woes.
