Swizz Beatz wants you to sweep around your own front door before you try to sweep around his. That wasn’t a dig at Mashonda’s janitorial service either.
He dismissed reports that he owes close to $100,000 in New York City taxes in addition to $2.6 million in federal taxes as “ridiculous” during a visit to 106 & Park this week. Additionally, Swizz provided TMZ with documents proving that he paid off a debt from 2010 totally to $98,246.18.
“First and foremost, I don’t have no tax issues. And if I have a $100,000 tax issue then I’m in serious trouble,” he admitted. “I’m not really going to speak, but everyone will see what it is. At this time I don’t feel no need to speak, but the facts are the facts and the people who put it out there, they’re going to have to retract that due to the facts.”

“That would be ridiculous if I owed $100,000 in taxes. That’s a flight from L.A. to New York. And if I can’t do that, then I’m doing the wrong thing. Not to say that I never had tax issues — yeah in ’06 — but it happens. But 2012, ’11, ’10, whatever, I don’t owe no taxes and that’s what it is.”
“There’s documents and records that prove all of that stuff and they’ll see that to,” he added. “I don’t have a problem with sharing that, because our people need to learn how to do homework before they judge. And there’s been a lot of things that I’ve been taking on the chin but it’s like, ‘how much are you not going to speak about?’”
