Washington, D.C., is suing MicroStrategy Inc. co-founder and Executive Chairman Michael Saylor — probably best known as the largest corporate buyer of Bitcoin — for tax fraud, claiming that he skipped out on paying more than $25 million in income taxes despite living in the district for more than a decade.
According to the lawsuit, which was filed with the D.C. Superior Court’s civil division, Saylor knowingly avoided paying taxes he owed since 2005 by fraudulently claiming to be a resident of other, lower-taxes jurisdictions, including Virginia and Florida. It claims that Saylor lived in a luxury penthouse on the Georgetown waterfront and docked multiple yachts on the district’s Potomac riverfront.
