Earlier today, the tax records of superstar producer Swizz Beatz hit the net.

It looks like Swizzy owes New York roughly $2.2 million in unpaid taxes. Here is what the Tax Watchdog (Detroit News) reported…


*The IRS filed a $652,727 lien against Swizz Beatz, real name Kasseem Dean, on June 3 with the Rockland County (N.Y.) Clerk. According to the lien, which you can see here, he owes income taxes from 2008.

*The state of New York filed a $162,300 tax warrant against Dean and his ex-wife Feb. 4, 2009, with the New York County Clerk.

* The IRS filed an $842,645 lien against Dean and his ex-wife March 4, 2008, with the Somerset County (N.J.) Clerk. According to this lien, they owe income taxes from 2006.

The question is, did Alicia Keyz know this before hooking up with him?

Ps: They are expecting their first child later this year.
