I wonder how much is the sum of all his unpaid taxes.

Is he unable to pay and this is going on since 2013 and nobody says a word about it?

"Kanda is the third politician appointed by Kishida to leave the government since the premier revamped the cabinet in September."

land and property belonging to his company was seized by authorities on four occasions between 2013 and 2022 due to the nonpayment of fixed asset taxes.

It's not like he got away with not paying taxes. Was it just a failing business?

Never the less bad look.

Kanda is the third politician appointed by Kishida to leave the government since the premier revamped the cabinet in September.

"I became busy with national political affairs and the weight of my tax accountant work decreased," Kanda said in a parliamentary session last week. "Demand letters and other matters were left to the staff at the tax accountant's office. I was too busy to get involved."

Yeah. Not paying your taxes would reduce the amount of work required for taxation.

And then placing the blame on his staff. What a weasel.
