September 15, 2009

The Honolulu-based TV bounty hunter and his wife Alice E. Smith, known as Beth Chapman, owe $1.8 million to the Internal Revenue Service on 2006 and 2007 income.

Another month, another tax lien for Duane “Dog” Chapman.The Honolulu-based TV bounty hunter and his wife Alice E. Smith, known as Beth Chapman, owe $1.8 million to the Internal Revenue Service on 2006 and 2007 income, according to a federal tax lien recorded May 19 by the Hawaii Bureau of Conveyances.The liens come five months after liens totalling more than $2 million were filed in Hawaii against the Chapmans for unpaid taxes from 2002 through 2005.The Chapmans’ Los Angeles-based accountant, Dennis Duban, told PBN in February that some of the federal tax bills had already been paid and blamed a lag between the time of payment and the release of the liens.

But according to records on file with the Bureau of Conveyances, none of the liens filed in January have been released.

Duban was out of the office this week and was not available for comment.

Chapman, who owns Da Kine Bail Bonds on Queen Emma Street and lives in Hawaii Kai, stars in the A&E program “Dog the Bounty Hunter.”

In 2006, the IRS filed liens against Chapman for almost $200,000 in 2004 income but in early 2007 Duban said those tax bills had been paid. The IRS had previously filed liens against him for unpaid 1993 and 1994 income.
