A recent tax lien docket shows President Joe Biden’s daughter, Ashley Biden, allegedly owes roughly $5,000 in income taxes.
The recent tax lien docket, which was first obtained by Fox News, shows that the president’s daughter owes about $5,000 in income taxes from a period starting in 2015.
The Pennsylvania Department of Revenue defines a tax lien as a “charge on real or personal property for the satisfaction of debt or duty.”
According to the tax lien provided to Fox News by Garrett Ziegler, founder of the Marco Polo nonprofit organization and a previous aide to former President Donald Trump, the Pennsylvania Department of Revenue in Philadelphia County notified Ashley Biden on Dec. 1 that the “amount of such unpaid tax, interest, additions or penalties is a lien in favor of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania upon the taxpayer’s property – real, personal, or both – as the case may be.”
Fox News reported that the period in question spanned from Jan. 1, 2015, during Joe Biden’s vice presidency under former President Barack Obama’s administration, until Jan. 1, 2021, during the final days of Trump’s administration.
“The scale is not anything like Hunter, but… Joe is constantly talking about how wealthy and connected people do not pay their fair share and can afford to pay more, and it just so happens that both of his living children did not pay their taxes,” Ziegler told Fox News. “This is just another example of the Bidens being careless. Like, you’d think that they would show a little bit more prudence when you’re the American first family to make sure you don’t have any tax liens on you, especially going into an election year.”
Ziegler founded the BidenLaptopMedia.com website, which features almost 10,000 photos from Hunter Biden’s laptop, spanning the time period between 2008 and 2019. According to Fox News, Ziegler claimed his team discovered Ashley Biden’s tax lien while performing a search in the system of the Philadelphia County courthouse.
Rep. Dan Meuser (R-Pa.), Pennsylvania’s former revenue secretary from 2011 to 2015, told The New York Post that Ashley Biden’s tax delinquency was either due to “carelessness” or “privilege.”
“Ashley Biden has an estimated net worth of nearly $2 million, and she can’t even find the time to pay $5,000 of her Pennsylvania taxes,” Meuser said. “So therefore, the Commonwealth has a lien on her property, meaning PA is a priority creditor and must be paid before Ashley can make any substantial financial transaction.”
Meuser claimed that compliance with tax payments in the state of Pennsylvania is “not difficult” and that the president’s daughter has the financial ability to pay her taxes. Describing Ashley Biden’s tax situation, the Pennsylvania Republican said, “At best it’s sad, at worst it’s unlawful.”
Meuser added, “Joe Biden loves chastising American taxpayers in the highest tax bracket — maybe there are a couple of other people he should be chastising.”
