Swizz Beatz would rather not pay taxes, thanks.

He might be a regular Obama supporter and guest at such swanky events as the White House Correspondent’s dinner – along with his wife Alicia Keys, who was one of the celebrities who publicly fretted that voting for Mitt Romney would give way to a dystopia where women would be chained to mobile stoves and forced to make sandwiches for any man on command – but it seems Swizz Beatz has trouble giving much more to the US government than his time and celebrity.

As in, they’d like it if he would please pay his taxes.

Hip-hop producer Swizz Beatz owes the U.S. government more than $2.7m in unpaid taxes.

According to reports the 34-year-old has had tax liens totaling $2.6million filed against him by the federal government in the U.S.

New York has filed a further tax lien for $98,246.18 in unpaid taxes from 2010, reports TMZ.

Perhaps someone should educate him on the fiscal cliff.
