The DOJ has formally filed a civil suit against Roger Stone for more than $2.1m in unpaid taxes. According to US reports, the suit was filed over the weekend and lead into many other allegations against Stone at this time. It is unclear if Stone has responded to the suit at this time.
“The Stones evaded and frustrated the (Internal Revenue Service’s) collection efforts” by repeatedly funneling money to a corporate entity they controlled called Drake Ventures, investigators wrote. Stone and his wife then used Drake Ventures account to “fund a lavish lifestyle despite owing nearly $2 million in unpaid taxes, interest and penalties,” they wrote.
The Stone ‘s likely are now on the hook for $2m in taxes plus interest.
