President Joe Biden’s son Hunter avoided paying income tax worth approximately $125,000 from his tenure on the board of directors of the Ukrainian energy company Burisma due to the expiration of the statute of limitations regarding the non-payment. The younger Biden’s failure to pay taxes come as revelations regarding the IRS investigation into the First Son have been revealed by a whistleblower.
IRS whistleblower Gary Shapley testified to Congress this week that Hunter Biden would not pay the $125,000 he owed the federal government in taxes from his time at Burisma. However, the statute of limitations to force the president’s son to pay the unpaid taxes had expired.
Rep. Michael Turner (R-OH) asked Shapley if the younger Biden was able to avoid both criminal charges for his non-payment, as well as being able to keep the money.
“That’s correct,” Shapley replied. “And civil and criminal statute limitations have expired for that tax year.”
The president’s son was hired as a board member of the company despite having no previous energy sector experience. He was paid about $1 million per year for his services.
The information tied to Hunter Biden’s lack of tax payments comes as his relationship with Burisma came under considerable scrutiny.
The House Oversight Committee revealed that a former FBI informant testified that a Burisma executive spoke of possible bribes to both then-Vice President Joe Biden and his son.
Furthermore, the younger Biden was reportedly involved in an effort to provide a U.S. visa to the same official of the Ukrainian company.

The effort to aid Mykola Zlochevsky came after the Burisma leader had his previous visa revoked in 2014 by the State Department.
Another Burisma board member wrote that having Hunter Biden’s name on the invitation would cause the American embassy to “consider carefully that invitation.”
Furthermore, the same whistleblower told the Oversight Committee his concerns that the investigation into the president’s son was interfered with by two U.S. Attorneys.
Hunter Biden will reportedly accept a plea deal regarding tax and firearms charges which would likely result in him avoiding prison time.
