Despite his support for Obama, Anthony has run afoul of the federal government in recent years.

In December 2010, the federal government filed a tax lien against the singer for $1.6 million, in addition to a $1.8 million lien filed by New York authorities–the back taxes totaled $3.4 million.

In 2007, Anthony was hit with a $2.5 million tax lien for failing to pay federal and state taxes on approximately $15.5 million income over a five years. A number of former business partners, including Anthony’s brother, were charged with felony tax charges–though Anthony was not.
