(sohh) The IRS claims it had a right to seize Buck’s valuables in an August raid.
In a new bankruptcy-court filing, the federal tax agency is defending itself from a lawsuit in which Young Buck seeks the return of nearly $25,000 worth of his possessions. The IRS seized the assets in August as part of its quest to be paid on the thousands of dollars in unpaid taxes that Young Buck, whose given name is David Darnell Brown, owes. The IRS disputes Brown’s claim that its seizure of the assets was “forceful” as well as the claim that the rappers’ kids’ belongings were among the assets it seized. Brown had argued that his children and common-law wife experienced “great stress” as a result of the seizure. The IRS also doesn’t buy the rapper’s attempt to tie the success of his work to the missing assets, questioning the necessity of having “Royal Copenhagen bear figurines” and the afore-mentioned soda machine and games around in order to write hip-hop tunes.

In Buck’s speculated suit, the IRS damaged his image by the summer invasion.
Young Buck is ready to fire back at the Internal Revenue Services. According to the local NBC affiliate in Nashville, WSMV-TV, Buck is suing the IRS over a raid of his property that occurred in August. The rapper is claiming the government’s actions hindered his ability to make money and ultimately pay off the debts. An auction of Buck’s seized property was scheduled for yesterday (October 28), but was reportedly canceled by the IRS. (XXL Mag)
