TV bounty hunter Duane “Dog” Chapman owes more than $2 million in unpaid taxes, Pacific Business News reported.
The Internal Revenue Service has filed tax liens that were recorded with the state Bureau of Conveyances on Jan. 27, alleging Chapman owed the IRS the unpaid taxes dating back to 2002, according to PBN.
Chapman owes $106,553 on 2002 income, $99,235 for 2003, $283,514 for 2004 and $1.56 million in 2005, according to PBN. Dennis Duban, identified as Chapman’s Los Angeles-based accountant, told the Honolulu business publication that Chapman says most of the taxes have been paid.
Duban told PBN that Chapman owes taxes for 2006 and 2007, but has paid taxes owed from 2002 to 2005. Duban told PBN that there often is a lag between the time the IRS receives the payment and when the liens are released.
Mona Wood, a spokeswoman for Chapman, would not comment when contacted by The Advertiser.
In the past, the IRS filed liens against Chapman for unpaid income in 1993 and 1994, according to PBN.
