“Ruff Ryders” Producer Working To Clear Debt To Uncle Sam
Swizz Beatz shelled out more than $732,000 to Uncle Sam to cut down a massive chunk of the millions he owed the IRS over unpaid taxes, this according to newly filed court docs.
The federal government filed a release of federal tax lien in New York on December 16th. The court documents state that the music producer – real name Kasseem Dean – handed over a total of $723,710.41 for unpaid taxes for the year 2006, which means he had paid the feds in full on the debt he owed them.
The music producer has a long history of tax problems and at one point he owed more than $2.6 million to the IRS. Beatz publicly blasted the reports about his tax issues explaining he was all caught up – despite evidence showing otherwise.
Mr. Alicia Keys appears to be on a roll, also paying the IRS $556,986.32 last year over unpaid income taxes from 2007.
