PHILADELPHIA - Imprisoned former Pennsylvania state Sen. Vincent Fumo needs to pay nearly $3 million in back taxes and fines, the federal government said Monday.
The Internal Revenue Service has filed liens against five properties, including Fumo's 33-room mansion in Philadelphia, three adjoining properties in south Philadelphia and a 99-acre farm near Harrisburg.
The IRS said it appears Fumo is trying to hide assets.
The once powerful Democratic lawmaker is serving a five-year sentence after being convicted in 2009 of defrauding the Senate, a neighborhood nonprofit and a seaport museum. He turns 70 next month and is recovering from heart surgery in January.
Fumo's son declined comment. He deferred to Fumo's tax lawyer, who did not return calls from the newspaper.
