EXCLUSIVE: Beanie Sigel Sentencing Pushed Back; Government Says Rapper Owes More Money


(AllHipHop News) Beanie Sigel appeared in a Philadelphia court today (April 12), where his sentencing date for failing to pay taxes was postponed.

Beanie will be sentenced on July 12, so that he will have time to prepare financial documents, in an attempt to clear up a discrepancy in regards to how much owes to the IRS.

Beanie Sigel, born Dwight Grant, is accused of failing to report income to the federal government, from 2003-2005.

Sigel claims he owes over $350,000 to the IRS, on over $1 million worth of income he earned during the years in question.

But the government disputes that amount and says the rapper owes upwards of $750,000 in taxes.

At today’s hearing, the judge gave Beanie Sigel until April 26 to turn in financial documentation for the years in question.

The judge also ordered Beanie Sigel and his legal team to meet with IRS agents on Friday, June 15, to come to a final agreement on the amount the rapper will owe.

The judge also said that the prison sentence is a separate issue from the auditing of Beanie Sigel’s financial records.

The rapper, who was poised and upbeat at today’s hearing, faces up to a total of 36 months behind bars.

Based on federal guidelines, Beanie Sigel may spend time in prison, although probation or other punitive sentencing is also a possibility.

The news comes just days before Beanie Sigel drops a brand new mixtape titled Broad Street Empire Vol. 1: Lost Files.

Beanie is due back in court on Thursday, July 12 at 10:00am.

Editor’s Note: A previous version of this news story implied that Beanie Sigel will definitely serve time in prison. Sentencing has not been determined at this time, and as a result the previous statement was inaccurate. The AllHipHop.com editorial staff regrets any confusion or inconvenience that this may have caused.

    wow…..uncle sam is the original crime syndicate(mafia)…u dnt wanna owe dem niggaz money…they’ll come see about you….glad he didnt go out like the 1st state prop movie(baby boy comin thru blazing)

  • Real shit, I hate hearin about people gettin locked up for not payin that unconstitutional ass Federal income tax…for starters, the Federal Income Tax Act of 1913 was written by BANKERS, not politicians.  The IRS and Federal Reserve are CORPORATE agencies, not governmental.  Not only that, there’s NO law in the book that requires ANY of us to pay that bullshit; they use fear to force us to pay, with the threat of prison time.  And if you don’t believe there’s no law, call a tax lawyer and ask em to find it for you, and see what they tell you.  Hold your head Sieg…

    “Sigel claims he owes over $350,000 to the IRS”

    If this is true then my point in the other Beanie thread is true: these charges are legit and not trumped up.

    Where are all the conspirists now?

    • EL_BARK

      Its not a conspirarcy……

      I aint never said sigel might not owed them……

      I said the fact that they are coming after him after all this time make its suspect.
      Also

      FYI because you speaking & not using facts.

      Sigel was in a fed prison during the time in question,
      He got indicted in 03. Did a bid in fed prison on 05.

      Why its now after six years after he filed taxes
      In 06, 07, 08, 09 2010, 2011,

      That they waited until 2010 to say.
      Um mr. Grant you owe us taxes from back in 03,
      Which was 7 years ago.????????

      Do you think when he filed in 06, they didnt know he owed them?

      Or when he filed in 08, they didnt know he owed them for
      03-05. While he was in fed custody????

      So the feds are that DUMB that you can be indicted in fed custody &
      And they dont know you owe them money???????

      Also i willing to bet, they are saying he owes the IRS based on money he spent !!!!!!!!!!

      Meaning they went back and seen or know he spent a million dollars.
      During them years. And he didnt report it………
      Thats prolly why he admits to owing 350,000 dollars.

      They feds prolly are saying its 3 million, unaacounted for or he didnt report.
      Dont forget rappers dont get standard paycheck like working people.

      Also FYI i will asked you this. I bet you cant tell me what has happen in the last six years
      Or during this period that made bring up thede owes tax charges can you???

      Of course you cant, because your are an outsider looking it at a situation,
      That you know nothing about.!!!!!!!!!!

      And i sitting here getting a front court view of everything that been going on.

      I not going to put hood shet out there, because the feds do montior this site,
      But i stand by my original argrument……

      If i told you the feds or local district cops have a grudge against sigel would you or could you believe that??????

      Say if i told you the cop that lock sigel up for the gun case,
      That then led the feds to indicted him.

      Is the same cops, that sigel had issues with back in the day????

      Say if you was an cop, and u hated a niggah for whatever reason.

      Then you see this niggah come up millons right in front of your face,
      Would you say that might make a person or cop
      Jealous????

      You talk opinion…………

      I am talking facts……………

      Everything dont get reported on AHH or the media.

        Dog,
        You weren’t the only one I responded to in other Beanz threads.

        How in the world are you in here minutes after I posted seemingly taking things so personally (even though your name was not called) posting an essay?

        There’s no way I (or anyone else) is going to read something so long that you have to hit PgDn three times to pass it by.

        C’Mon Son. The internet is not real, dog. Get some fresh air and live a little.

        I actually enjoyed our little chat but this is out of hand…

        Good night.

      • EL_BARK

        I dont take nothing personal on here

        And i just happen to get on and see that article.

        Please i not e-stalking you. But i felt your comment
        Although wasnt adress to me,

        Might had been directed at me since me & you went back on forth on tge issue several times..

        As far as my long essay, read them if you chose or ignored like you did.

        Dont make me a differernces….
