Ashley Biden, the daughter of President Joe Biden, finds herself embroiled in a tax-related issue.
A tax lien document, first brought to light by Fox News Digital, reveals that she owes over $5,000 in income taxes starting from 2015.
This situation highlights a critical instance of unpaid taxes within the Biden family, raising questions about financial diligence.
Legal Implications of Liens
The concept of liens, legal claims imposed by the government on property or assets, comes into play in Ashley’s case.
They are a method used by the government to secure taxes that remain unpaid despite repeated collection attempts. The lien against Ashley Biden was officially communicated by the Pennsylvania Department of Revenue in Philadelphia County on December 1.
The notice states, “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.”
Timeline of Tax Liabilities
The tax period in question for Ashley Biden spans from January 1, 2015, when Joe Biden was serving as vice president under the Obama administration, to January 1, 2021, just days before he assumed the presidency.
Neither Ashley Biden nor her attorney responded to multiple inquiries regarding this issue.
Political Repercussions and Public Perception
Garrett Ziegler, the founder of nonprofit Marco Polo and a former aide to President Trump, commented on the situation to Fox News Digital.
He pointed out the irony in the Biden family’s tax issues, considering President Biden’s public stance on tax fairness for wealthy individuals.
“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 stated.
He further criticized the Bidens for being “careless” and lacking prudence, especially as the American first family, by allowing such tax liens, particularly in an election year.
The Biden Laptop Controversy
Ziegler’s nonprofit also delved into the controversial matter of Hunter Biden’s laptop.
His website, BidenLaptopMedia.com, hosts a plethora of photos from Hunter’s infamous laptop, spanning 2008 to 2019.
During this investigation, they stumbled upon Ashley’s tax lien. Ziegler emphasized their non-partisan stance, stating, “We’re not Republican activists,” and their commitment to presenting an unbiased picture of the Biden family.
