Exclusive: Hunter Biden's Tax Returns Reveal Debt, Recovery, and a Long Struggle With the IRS

Business Insider has reviewed hundreds of pages of Hunter Biden's financial records. The documents — made public, in part, for the first time today — include several years of personal tax returns filed by President Joe Biden's son in the late 2010s and early 2020s.

Hunter Biden's 2018 individual tax return, also known as a Form 1040, offers an intimate, primary-source view of his income and his relationship with the IRS, subjects that are now the focus of a federal indictment. The view they give of Biden's lifestyle and his attitude toward his tax obligations is more nuanced than the 56-page charging document released last week by Special Counsel David C. Weiss.

That indictment charged Biden with six misdemeanors spanning four tax years, and three felonies — including filing a false return and tax evasion — all from 2018. It sought to depict Biden in starkly moralistic terms, a debauched and entitled playboy who made his living off of sketchy influence-peddling deals, then spent it on sex workers and hotel rooms instead of paying his taxes.
