IRS records indicate embattled lawyer Michael Avenatti was able to live a life of luxury, because he avoided paying his taxes for over a decade.
According to those records, Avenatti allegedly avoided paying taxes and used his company to pay for personal expenses.
He is now facing federal indictments in both New York and California.
Tax documents revealed he earned nearly two milliondollars in personal income back in 2009 yet never paid the $570,000 he owed in taxes.
He also allegedly has not filed his personal income tax returns since 2010.
This comes as he faces nearly 100-years in prison stemming from charges in two separate cases
