Come on dude! Celebrities have NO EXCUSE to avoid paying taxes, so what givez Mr. Swizz?!?!

Swizz Beatz — real name Kasseem Dean — has apparently NOT been paying his fair share in the way of taxes, and NY State has filed a lien against the music producer claiming he still owes the government $98,246.18 for unpaid taxes in 2010.

But this is not the first time the man of a million Beatz has had issues with tax evasion!

Swizz, who is married to the lovely Alicia Keys, also has federal liens filed against him in the past amounting to $2.6 Million.

Dayyuuummmm!

You better start chargin' a little extra in production costs, Swizz! Or, you could hit up you super successful wife for the cash, which we're sure wouldn't be at all awkward…

UPDATE

Swizz Beatz has unearthed documents proving he DID pay all of his 2010 taxes!

A rep for Swizz ensures us that Mr. Beatz is a-ok with the IRS and has paid all his taxes in full.

Yay!

    You know what I find interesting about these rap/music "stars" and their failure to pay taxes is that during election time they're all out there promoting Obama and the Democrats. Well pay your fucking taxes. That's what the President and his policies are all about. Don't go around singing songs of praise and uring everyone to support him and the Democratic ideology and then try to duck your civic duty. Pay up. You are NOT special. Fools and their money are soon parted. I hope they ALL go broke for being STUPID.
