According to the Associated Press, Hall of Famer Tony Gwynn owes more than $400,000 in unpaid federal income taxes.
The information was published this morning in the San Diego Union-Tribune, who reported that the government liens involve unpaid taxes from 2003, 2007 and 2009. Gwynn was given a notice last year for $209,156 and another in 2010 for $227,093.
Gwynn recently joined an ownership group led by Legendary Pictures CEO Thomas Tull in an effort to buy majority control of the Padres from John Moores. MLB has a vetting process to evaluate the financial well-being of prospective owners, but assuming Gwynn isn’t one of the major money partners, it shouldn’t have much of an impact on the process.
Gwynn’s tax attorney, Mitch Dubick, told the San Diego Union-Tribune that the Padres’ legend is working on paying the owed taxes in installments.
