Maybe we should rename the show 19 kids and counting your debts!
‘In Touch Weekly’ has learned that 19 Kids and Counting star Josh Duggar and his wife, Anna, were hit with a tax lien in January because they failed to pay $3,746.20 in taxes to the state of Arkansas.
As fans of the show know, the Duggars have been known to be extremely frugal. Jim Bob has credited the 16-hour “Financial Freedom Seminar” by businessman Jim Sammons for encouraging him to live debt-free (which he was able to accomplish after seven years).
“After just seeing the first session, the truths from God’s word being taught through Mr. Sammons began to convince me of my need to ‘owe no man anything but love,’” the Duggar patriarch once said.
And as Josh, 27, and his wife, 26, prepare for baby No. 4, they too can boast about living debt-free — and “owing no man anything but love.”
He tells ‘In Touch’ all of his owed dues have since been paid to the state.
