BALTIMORE — The IRS has placed a $45,022.00 tax lien against Baltimore City State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby and her husband, State Delegate Nick Mosby.

WMAR-2 News obtained a copy of the lien which shows the Mosbys failed to pay federal taxes from 2014 through 2016.

According to the document, the powerful political couple owe $22,828.04 from 2014, $19,145.21 from 2015, and $3,048.75 from 2016.

Tax liens can result in a government seizure of property or other financial assets to cover what's owed and, while Marilyn Mosby has not yet responded, Nick Mosby sent us the following statement:

"I have been in ongoing conversations with the IRS for five years about the tax consequences of an early withdrawal from my retirement savings plan, which I did to support unplanned expenses after a series of family tragedies. I expect to have the issue resolved in the coming days."

This isn't the first time the family's had tax issues. Online records show that in 2013, Maryland placed a $5,000 lien on their property.

Also, back in July 2019, Marilyn Mosby asked the city's inspector general to investigate reports about her international travel and personal business ventures while in office, which stemmed from allegations surrounding her European trips in 2018 and 2019.
