Psaki says Biden owing $500K to IRS was ‘debunked,’ but experts disagree

White House press secretary Jen Psaki on Tuesday claimed allegations that President Biden owes as much as $500,000 in unpaid Medicare taxes have been “debunked” — despite experts saying otherwise.

The issue re-emerged last month when Republicans accused Biden of hypocritically pushing for other wealthy people to pay their “fair share” to fund new social spending.

Psaki grew visibly annoyed when asked about the issue by The Post at her daily press briefing and cut off the line of questioning after an expert was cited, who affirmed Biden might indeed owe taxes.

“This is a very long question. I think I know what you’re getting at. This has been debunked, as you probably know. Also he’s released many, many years of his tax returns so people can check them out,” Psaki said.

She made the declaration despite being presented with a quote from tax law expert Bob Willens, an adjunct professor at Columbia University’s business school, who recently said that “in my view, the case can easily be made” that Biden owes back taxes. 

When The Post pointed out that “it hasn’t been debunked though, I just cited an expert,” Psaki cut off the inquiry and asked another reporter to ask a question.
