Martin Shkreli Not Exactly On Top of His Taxes

As you may have heard, everyone's favorite man-child villain, Martin Shrkeli, is having a bit of legal trouble.

He sounds confident that everything will blow over, but now Gawker is reporting that he's also a little behind on his taxes:

Last month, the Internal Revenue Service filed a federal tax lien against Martin Shkreli, alleging that he owes the government quite a bit of money—$4,628,928.55, to be precise.

Shkreli, who is facing federal securities fraud charges in Brooklyn, allegedly owes $3,431.85 from 2013 and $4,625,496.70 from 2014. The lien was prepared on December 18, 2015 and filed with the Office of the City Register on January 11, 2016.

I'm sure Shkreli has a tax professional on the case, but in the off-chance that he doesn't, it's really too bad that most are simply too busy this time of year to take on a new client.
