On May 10, 2021, Hunter Biden, the son of former President Joe Biden, was indicted on felony federal tax evasion charges in the state of California. According to court documents filed in the Central District Court of California, Biden is facing charges that he knowingly and willfully attempted to evade federal income tax between the years of 2013 and 2019. The indictment alleges that Hunter Biden intentionally and fraudulently failed to report millions of dollars in income on his federal tax returns. He allegedly underreported his true income from business investments in various states and countries, as well as unreported gifts and gratuities received from other individuals. In addition, the indictment claims that Biden failed to pay $156,000 in taxes on the unreported income. He also allegedly failed to file tax returns for the 2019 financial year. The indictment states that Hunter Biden was aware of his legal obligation to timely file and pay taxes on income, yet deliberately chose not to do so in an effort to unlawfully evade taxes. If convicted of the felony charge, he could face up to 5 years of imprisonment and a fine of up to $250,000. This news has sent shockwaves throughout the political landscape as the Biden family had placed great emphasis on paying its fair share of taxes during the 2020 Presidential campaign. Hunter Biden will now have to answer to the federal government and face the consequences for hefty charges. His legal team is currently reviewing the charges and preparing to fight back in the California court system. This case opens a Pandora’s Box of issues that the Biden family must now confront and raise questions about whether there was any wrongdoing on the part of the former President or any other family members. Nevertheless, it is a reminder to all citizens of the importance of paying their taxes in full and on time.
