Swizz Beatz Has Yet To Pay Taxes And Owes $100,000


Swizz Beatz‘s tax problems continue in the state of New York City. The rapper has been owing taxes since 2003 and still goes without paying them.

Back in January 2011, the hip-hop emcee, Swizz Beatz, was pinched for owing over $2.6 million taxes in New York City. The rapper/producer is now facing an even bigger problem with Uncle Sam.

According to the recent reports from TMZ, the State of New York claims that he’s been fallen behind taxes for quite a while. New York City official have even filed a lien against Swizz Beatz for unpaid taxes in 2010. They claimed t hat he owed $98,246.18, and then added the federal tax which is $2.6 million.

Swizz Beatz’s tax problem go as far as 2003, and between the year 2010. Swizz Beatz was served with 35 tax liens with over $1.4 million owed during that time period. It still leaves me confused as to how these artists and producers just cant seem to pay their taxes. I mean seriously you have 100k vehicles and a fortune worth of jewelry yet you still cant pay your taxes?

I guess rappers and producers now a days just dont have enough time to be bothered with taxes.

Swizz Beatz has yet to give a comment about his tax issues, but HipHopRX will keep you updated once we get more information.
