A Palm Beach, Florida-based property owned by former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani was placed under a federal tax lien by the Internal Revenue Service, which claimed in a court filing that he owes more than a half-million dollars in unpaid income taxes.
CBS News is reporting the tax lien for $549,435.26 was recorded in Palm Beach County on Sept. 1. Giuliani and his then-wife Judith Nathan paid $1.4 million for the three-bedroom unit in the Southlake Condominium complex in 2010, with Giuliani taking on full ownership 10 years later following the couple’s divorce.
Prior to Nathan’s relinquishing of her ownership claims, the couple listed condo for in June 2019 for $3.3 million. One month later, the listing price was reduced to $3 million. Giuliani removed the property from the market in 2020.
The Palm Beach County Property Appraiser has assessed the property as being worth $3.07 million. Through a spokesperson, Giuliani stated he had an agreement with the IRS to pay off his tax liability.
Giuliani has faced growing legal bills related to his association with his one-time client, former President Donald Trump, including criminal charges in Fulton County, Georgia, for his role in an alleged conspiracy to overturn the 2020 election results. Trump hosted a $100,000 per person fundraiser for Giuliani at his Bedminster, New Jersey-based club, and in August Giuliani listed his Manhattan apartment for sale at $6.5 million.
