Former State Sen. Fumo Owes Nearly $3M: IRS

advertisement

The federal government says imprisoned former Pennsylvania state Sen. Vincent Fumo needs to pay nearly $3 million in back taxes and fines.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reports that the Internal Revenue Service filed liens against five properties last month. That includes Fumo's 33-room mansion in Philadelphia, three adjoining properties in south Philadelphia and a 99-acre farm near Harrisburg.

The IRS says it appears Fumo is trying to hide assets.

Fumo’s Green Street mansion was on the market for $5.55 million a few years back but it apparently hasn’t sold.

He turns 70 next month and is recovering from heart surgery in January. A source told the NBC10 Investigators that Fumo needed the surgery after a 95-percent blockage was found in one of his arteries.

Fumo's son declined comment to the newspaper Friday. He deferred to Fumo's tax lawyer, who did not return calls from the newspaper.
