Swizz Beatz' Mounting Tax Debt
In 2008, it was reported that the IRS placed a $842,644 tax lien against Swizz Beatz and then wife Mashonda. Now, that debt has multiplied.
According to the Detroit News, Swizz Beatz (who's known by the government as Kasseem Dean and is currently engaged to be wed to Alicia Keys -- who is also pregnant with his child) owes $2.2 million in unpaid taxes and as recently as June 3, the IRS filed a $652,727 against him for unpaid 2008 taxes. This is in addition to the $162,300 tax warrant the agency filed against him and Mashonda on Feb. 4, 2009 and the $556,986 lien filed on Aug. 18, 2008 for unpaid 2007 taxes.
