Former Stormy Daniels attorney Michael Avenatti hasn’t filed an income tax return since 2010 and skipped out on payments in 2009 and 2010, according to federal prosecutors.

The Los Angeles Times reported Wednesday that Avenatti, now facing federal indictments in both New York and California, appears to have been living the life of luxury — all while allegedly stiffing Uncle Sam on a regular basis.

In 2009, the IRS reports that Avenatti claimed some $1.9 million in personal income — but never paid his tax bill, which amounted to $570,000. He allegedly repeated the same move in 2010, when he claimed $1.2 million in earnings but never paid the $282,000 he owed on that income.

Since 2010, the IRS reports that Avenatti did not file tax returns, either personal or for his law firm, Avenatti & Associates, in spite of bank deposits totaling $18 million and $38 million respectively.

How could he be so stupid as to not pay his taxes and how could the IRS let him get away with not paying taxes for almost 10 years. What kind of a government have we got.

I didn't file my taxes a couple of years and the IRS came after me and after interest and really crazy penalties it took me 5 years to finally pay it all off. NEVER AGAIN!

What we must remember is Lois "the demagogue" Lerner was at IRS during this time. Avenatti professes to have a rapier whit and above average intelligence, much smarter than the average. He is nothing but a schemer and sycophant who preys on those unaware using his sleazy charm and BS. He needs to go down big time and oh by the way what about Big Al Sharpton?
