Hunter Biden's First Court Date Set for Tax Evasion Charges

By Caden Pearson

Hunter Biden, son of U.S. President Joe Biden, is scheduled to make his initial court appearance and arraignment in California next month, according to court documents released on Monday.

The court appearance is slated for Jan. 11, 2024, at the U.S. District Court in the Central District of California, according to a federal court calendar. It will see Mr. Biden facing serious felony and misdemeanor tax charges.

The charges stem from a nine-count indictment returned by a grand jury, accusing Mr. Biden of three felony tax offenses and six misdemeanor tax offenses. The charges follow an extensive investigation into his financial dealings between 2016 and 2019, according to federal court documents.

The Epoch Times contacted Mr. Biden’s lawyer for comment.

The indictment alleges that Mr. Biden, instead of fulfilling his tax obligations, spent his money financing an extravagant lifestyle, including on drugs, escorts, luxury hotels, rental properties, exotic cars, clothing, and other personal items, totaling at least $1.4 million.

“The Defendant spent millions of dollars on an extravagant lifestyle at the same time he chose not to pay his taxes,” reads the indictment.

Specifically, the charges include three counts of failure to pay taxes for the years 2016, 2017, and 2019, along with three counts of failure to file tax returns for the years 2017 and 2018, according to special counsel David Weiss.

In addition to these charges, Mr. Biden is accused of tax evasion, filing a false return, and filing a false return for his company, Owasco PC, for the tax year 2018.

Prosecutors allege that Mr. Biden intentionally sought to evade tax payments, including manipulating his company’s payroll and tax withholding process by withdrawing millions outside established procedures. The indictment further contends that he claimed false deductions in 2018 to reduce his tax liability and failed to pay taxes on time between 2016 and 2019, neglecting to file timely tax returns for 2017 and 2018.
