Hollywood Mega-Lawyer Pays Hunter Biden’s $2M Tax Bill
ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY…
1751: Pennsylvania Hospital founded by Dr. Thomas Bond and Benjamin Franklin, in Philadelphia.
Hunter Biden’s $2 million delinquent tax bill was paid off by Hollywood mega-lawyer Kevin Morris, according to multiple reports.
Morris, an entertainment lawyer who previously represented the co-creators of South Park and later won a Tony award for co-producing Book of Mormon, paid off Biden’s past-due tax bill that totaled more than $2 million.
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) first opened its ongoing probe into Biden in 2018, including possible tax fraud, money laundering, and violations of lobbying laws.
But paying off his debt may keep Biden out of hot water. The zero balance could make it more difficult for prosecutors to convict or secure a lengthy sentence, according to reports.
According to CBS News, entering a political fight such as this “is an unusual move for Morris, who has long been a maverick in Hollywood. Morris founded a law firm that represented a cast of A-list stars and then began writing fiction and producing documentaries. He also subsequently helped negotiate another South Park deal, this one worth a reported $900 million.”
Morris’s law firm has represented a laundry list of celebrities, including Matthew McConaughey, Ellen DeGeneres, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Rock, and Laura Linney.
