Karl Racine, the attorney general of Washington D.C., has announced that he is suing former MicroStrategy CEO Michael Saylor for not paying taxes.
Racine says that the Bitcoin evangelist has never paid any D.C. income taxes, accusing the latter of committing fraud. The D.C. attorney general adds that he is also suing MicroStrategy for allegedly conspiring to help him facilitate his tax avoidance schemes. Racine claims that Saylor owes “hundreds of millions of dollars.”
In its complaint, the Attorney General’s office alleges that Saylor “fraudulently purported” to be a resident of either Florida or Virginia in order to take advantage of substantially lower tax rates. However, his Facebook posts, which are included in the complaint, prove that he maintained his domicile in Washington, D.C.
