( 4UMF NEWS ) Damon Dash One Of New York State’s Top Tax Deadbeats:
It’s almost the time of year annual “power lists” start popping up for 2015.
But one fall list New York players want to avoid has just been released: New York State’s Top 250 Delinquent Taxpayers.
Making the cut is Jay Z’s former partner Damon Dash — who owes $2.28 million and ranks No. 28, according to the Department of Taxation and Finance. It’s actually not Dash’s worst showing — he previously owed $4.14 million in state income tax from 2005, 2007, 2010 and 2011.
In better news, he was reportedly cast this week in an upcoming BET reality series with Snoop Dogg, Birdman and Jermaine Dupri (which should help pay the bills).
Also on the list is restaurateur Nello Balan at No. 30, owing $2.18 million. Balan told us of his tax woes: “The previous version of Nello, which has been around for decades, had a few issues which I understand are being resolved. For the past several months, my primary focus has been on the release of Nello 2.0 later this year. It will be a major upgrade.”
A rep for Dash said, “No comment.”
Also on the tax delinquent list for businesses was now-closed gentlemen’s club Ten’s Cabaret.
