The Michael Avenatti Files: Porn Star Attorney Avenatti “Acted with Malice, Fraud and Oppression” – Paid No Payroll Taxes For Years

Guest post by Joe Hoft

Stormy Daniels creepy lawyer Michael Avenatti reportedly paid no taxes for years in a row in spite of making over $30 million in income. This was uncovered by a former employee who brought a case against him for defrauding the employee.

Legal expert and attorney Robert Barnes tweeted this on Sunday: “In December 2014, Avenatti decided to quit paying most taxes. He failed to even file his law firm’s income tax returns for 2014, 2015, and 2016, though a lawyer’s detailed filings in his bankruptcy court report his firm made over $30M in income in that time. IRS records confirm.”

Barnes followed this up with: “#Avenatti law firm tax evasion was uncovered when a former employee brought an arbitration claim against him for defrauding the employee, and the 3-Judge panel of the Arbitration committee found Avenatti acted with malice, fraud and oppression by hiding its tax returns.”

Barnes also noted that Avenatti was unsatisfied w/ evading income taxes, and so he “also decided to quit paying his employees’ Medicare or Social Security taxes, at the same time in December 2014, stiffing them and the IRS in a seven-figure tax bill, while diverting millions in income to himself. IRS records confirm.”
