An Internal Revenue Service (IRS) whistleblower says that Hunter Biden - the son of President Joe Biden - took tax deductions on tens of thousands of dollars in payments that he made to a prostitute and to a sex club.
The IRS whistleblower, according to the New York Post, made the claim during testimony that the whistleblower recently provided to Congress - specifically to the House Ways and Means Committee.
On Thursday, Congress released the June 1, 2023, testimony of the whistleblower.
The whistleblower testified:
So, some of the items that [Hunter Biden] deducted were personal no-show employees. He deducted payments that were made to who he called his West Coast assistant, but she was essentially a prostitute.
At the time of this writing, the whistleblower remains unnamed. But, it is known that the whistleblower, as a member of the IRS, worked on the agency's investigation into alleged tax fraud by Hunter Biden.
The whistleblower detailed some of the investigation's findings to Congress.
The whistleblower said:
So, [Hunter Biden] underreported his total income by $267,000, if you are using the most conservative approach, and that is a tax loss of $106,000. So, that includes deductions for personal wages and salaries paid, personal travel expenses paid, personal children expenses that he paid, and personal other expenses that he paid.
This testimony was released after reports that Hunter Biden reached a plea deal with the federal government.
In exchange for a guilty plea, Biden will avoid jail time both for tax crimes and for a gun-related offense.
Some are referring to the plea deal as a "sweetheart deal," suggesting that the federal government went easy on Hunter Biden because of who his father is.
Besides the money that Hunter Biden gave to his so-called "West Coast Assistance," the whistleblower also revealed that Biden deducted on his taxes a $10,000 payment that he claimed was a "golf club member deposit."
In actuality, the money went to a "sex club."
The whistleblower said:
[Hunter Biden] made payments — there’s an $18,000 wire that is made to one of these individuals, and on the wires they say $8,000 in wage and $10,000 in golf — $10k golf club member deposit - And we know that that $10,000 went to pay for a sex club. He went to a sex club, and we’ve talked to the person that owned that sex club, and they confirmed that he was there. And, the guy has to pay $10,000, and the girl — whoever is referring him there doesn’t have to pay anything.
"So, that was deducted on the tax return," the whistleblower added.
