Hunter Biden Sues IRS Over Release Of Private Tax Information

Hunter Biden sues IRSPresident Joe Biden’s son sued the IRS on Monday over the recent release of private tax information.

In a complaint filed in federal court in Washington, D.C., Hunter Biden’s attorneys argue that “the IRS and its agents have conducted themselves under a presumption that the rights that apply to every other American citizen do not apply to Mr. Biden.”

Two IRS whistleblowers told Congress earlier this year that the Justice Department had stifled their long-running investigation into Biden’s failure to pay federal taxes.

Tax information is generally confidential, with criminal penalties for its release, with exceptions for certain situations ― including one that allows certain congressional committees to obtain private tax information and vote to make it public. Republicans in Congress cited that exception when they voted to make the whistleblower testimony public earlier this year, while the IRS agents have continued to speak out in media interviews.

“IRS agents have targeted and sought to embarrass Mr. Biden via public statements to the media in which they and their representatives disclosed confidential information about a private citizen’s tax matters,” Biden’s lawsuit alleges.
