This is too funny. But the point is valid.

Amid a flood of reports about evidence that the Bidens, Joe and son Hunter, were bribed by a Ukrainian gas company official to get rid of a corruption investigation, evidence that apparently includes recordings of those conversations, a member of Congress wants to know whether taxes were paid on that income.
The Washington Examiner said it is U.S. Rep. Byron Donalds, R-Fla., who said it is important that recipients of large sums pay their “fair share.”
A whistleblower sparked the dispute by reporting to Congress that the Bidens had been bribed to get rid of the investigation into Burisma, the Ukrainian gas company. Since then, specific charges that Joe and Hunter each took a $5 million bribe have been reported, as well as the fact that the Burisma official involved has recordings of conversations with the two.
U.S. Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, this week suggested the evidence against the Bidens included recordings.
“Everything that Sen. Grassley says does pan out because the document does state that the Burisma executive actually has receipts,” Donalds said. “And then the other piece that definitely pans out is that they move the money through several accounts that would take investigators 10 years to find.”
He continued, “By the way, I will add this: Joe Biden likes to say that the rich need to pay their fair share. ‘Hey, Joe, did you pay your taxes on that $5 million?’ I don’t think you did.”
He said the plan should include a special counsel investigation.
“The president and the president’s family have been shaking down foreign companies and foreign countries for a long time. Don’t tell me that Joe Biden is not compromised by the fact that his family has gotten millions and millions of dollars through all these dummy shell corporations that they set up in his last year and a half as vice president,” he said.
“They set it up on purpose for this exact thing. It’s time that a special council is brought forward to investigate this the same way they have a zealous prosecution of President Trump,” he said.
