Strizheus Delinquent on $600K of Income Taxes: IRS Should End Tax Cheat by Confiscating Mansion!

In addition to being a convicted grand thief, Sioux Falls online schemer and mansion foot-dragger Vitaliy Strizheus is also a big tax cheat:

During Friday’s court hearing, after being pressed by the city’s lawyer, Vic Strizheus admitted he owes the IRS $600,000. The internet marketing executive told the judge he is making payments to settle the back taxes [Tom Hanson, “City Lets Demolition of Unfinished Mansion Deadline Pass in Sioux Falls,” KELO-TV, 2023.02.27].

$600,000 is more federal income tax than I’ve paid and will likely pay in my entire lifetime. With the income it takes to incur that kind of tax liability, Strizheus could have paid his contractors to finish his code-violating mansion years ago.

And hey: why isn’t that army of new IRS agents that Kristi Noem and John Thune have been hyperventilating about jumping down Strizheus’s throat and demanding he stop sticking the rest of us with the price of patriotism?

Perhaps the City of Sioux Falls and Judge Roberto Lange are doing us all a favor by delaying the demolition of Strizheus’s big code violation. Perhaps they are giving the IRS time to confiscate the unfinished mansion and auction it off to pay Strizheus’s overdue taxes!

    Hey Hey! You’re “on to something!”

    OK, if they tear it down. The Strizheus’s still own the property. What then?

    The 90,000 new armed IRS agents are too busy going after the tips of waters and waitresses than going after real crooks.

    I’ve said auctioning it off would be the best move. The IRS could get there money, the city coffers could be reimbursed for litigation and fines and whatever is left, if any, could be given to Vic. Everyone is happy. I have been told state law would not allow the city to auction, but maybe the feds?

    I say you turn it into a homeless shelter. First come, first serve. Let the libbie organizations give out the lunches. Everybody wins.

    Hey, while we’re at it, turn Mr. Stan’s mansion on the hill into a homeless shelter because why not.

    I think Mr. Stan’s big house on the hill would make a dandy homeless shelter.

    Mr. Anderson, I expect after the house is razed the owner and his spouse will turn it into a campground, at which point the neighbors will regret their prior complaints and wish the house was back.

    Lar, I called Mr. Stan.

    He said “no.”
