Recent reports indicate that Ashley Biden, the First Daughter, is reportedly in debt to the Pennsylvania government, owing approximately $5,000 in overdue taxes. This revelation follows the legal troubles of President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, who is facing charges related to an alleged failure to pay over $1 million in federal income taxes.
As of December 1, a tax lien amounting to $5,079.44 has been imposed on Ashley Biden’s property by the Philadelphia County office of the Pennsylvania Department of Revenue.
The state alleges that Ashley Biden failed to fulfill her state income tax obligations spanning from 2015 to 2021. Notably, this timeframe includes the period when Joe Biden held the position of Vice President and the initial year of his presidential administration.
Apart from the allegations concerning non-payment brought forth by the state, Ashley Biden has been tasked with covering extra costs, encompassing a filing fee. The revelation about Biden’s daughter surfaced mere weeks following charges against Hunter Biden, who is implicated in the alleged failure to pay approximately $1.4 million in unpaid taxes.
Hunter Biden owes over a million dollars in taxes, defied a lawful subpoena from Congress, and Ashley Biden owes over $5,000 in taxes. The Biden family is not above the law.⁰— Congressman Jeff Van Drew (@Congressman_JVD) December 18, 2023

The prosecution of the First Son involves nine counts, including three felony charges, as disclosed by special counsel David Weiss. The accusations against Hunter Biden include the failure to file taxes for multiple years and the non-payment of taxes on substantial income, including funds from foreign sources.
Both Hunter Biden and the president’s brother, James, received substantial payments from foreign companies, including entities in Ukraine, Russia, and China. Hunter Biden, notably, held a position on the board of the Ukrainian energy company Burisma while his father served as vice president, earning an annual stipend of $1 million.
The federal tax charges against Hunter Biden were brought forward subsequent to earlier indictments on federal felony firearms charges by Weiss’ office earlier this year. If found guilty on all counts, Hunter Biden could potentially face a prison sentence of 17 years.
This development coincides with Republican efforts in Congress to trace millions of dollars in payments linked to the Biden family. The House Oversight Committee has unveiled two images of checks issued to the president by his brother James, designated as loan repayments. The White House has consistently denied any wrongdoing amidst the ongoing investigations.
