Roger Stone Is Sued as U.S. Government Alleges Unpaid Taxes

The U.S. government filed a civil lawsuit Friday against longtime GOP political consultant Roger Stone, alleging that he owes nearly $2 million in unpaid taxes, interest and penalties.

The suit alleges that Mr. Stone and his wife, Nydia Stone, owe $1.5 million in taxes, penalties and interest for the tax years 2007 through 2011 that were filed jointly. It further alleges that Mr. Stone owes another $400,000 in taxes and penalties on his 2018 income taxes, which were filed separately from his spouse.

Mr. Stone didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.

He was convicted in 2019 of lying to Congress, witness tampering and obstruction of a congressional proceeding before being pardoned by then-President Donald Trump in the waning days of his administration.

The lawsuit was filed in federal court in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., where Mr. Stone lives.
