On the heels of a deal with prosecutors that allowed him to plead guilty to misdemeanor charges of tax evasion, new allegations have surfaced about Hunter Biden’s tax deductions.
According to a statement provided by an IRS whistleblower to the House Ways and Means Committee earlier this month, President Joe Biden’s son not only underreported his income by as much as $500,000, but improperly deducted tens of thousands of dollars in personal expenses.

The IRS investigator, who was not publicly identified by the congressional panel, said that the total “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.”
Biden’s own financial records “completely contradicted what was being deducted on his tax return,” the whistleblower added.
The details become significantly more sordid as the whistleblower explains what some of the clandestine deductions actually represented.
One of the “personal no-show employees” for whom Biden allegedly deducted payments on his taxes was officially described as his “West Coast assistant,” but the IRS source claimed that “she was essentially a prostitute.”
Furthermore, a $10,000 payment billed as a “golf club member deposit” allegedly went to membership dues for a “sex club.”
Reports indicate an owner of the club has acknowledged that Biden was one of its members.
Biden’s plea deal with prosecutors has been widely denounced by critics as evidence of preferential treatment.
The House Oversight Committee has been investigating allegations of corruption and bribery involving both Joe and Hunter Biden, and the panel’s chairman spoke out forcefully against the plea arrangement.
“Hunter Biden is getting away with a slap on the wrist when growing evidence uncovered by the House Oversight Committee reveals the Bidens engaged in a pattern of corruption, influence peddling, and possibly bribery,” said U.S. Rep. James Comer (R-KY). “These charges against Hunter Biden and sweetheart plea deal have no impact on the Oversight Committee’s investigation.”
Former President Donald Trump, who was indicted on federal charges related to the alleged mishandling of classified documents just days earlier, offered a similar view of the Hunter Biden deal.
Writing on his Truth Social platform, Trump said: “Wow! The corrupt Biden DOJ just cleared up hundreds of years of criminal liability by giving Hunter Biden a mere ‘traffic ticket.'”
