Young Buck Doesn't Pay Taxes, Home Gets Raided by Armed IRS Agents
The home of rapper Young Buck was raided Tuesday in Hendersonville, Tennessee by armed Internal Revenue Service agents.
According to the rapper, whose real name is David Darnell Brown, he opened the door to find IRS agents with shotguns who seized recording equipment, jewelry, furniture and platinum wall plaques for a delinquent $300,000 tax bill.
Yung Buck, like many other entertainers, subscribe to the Wesley Snipes school of paying taxes.
According to public records, Brown has had multiple liens for nonpayment of taxes, the most recent in May in Sumner County for $164,337 in federal taxes.
Dan Boone, spokesman for the IRS, told The Tennessean, agents conducted a “civil action” Tuesday in Sumner County. He declined to name Yung Buck as the target of the action or discuss the nature of their visit.
Yung Buck blamed past managers, accountants and his former record label for his financial troubles and told fans, “I have a new team in place, but I am also paying full attention now. Nothing like this will ever happen again. This is a huge wake up call for all entertainers to stay on top of your own trusted employees and team members, and replace anyone that was put in place by your record label if the situation you have goes sour...From now on, I am going to stay on top of my own business.”
