Public records show disgraced financier R. Allen Stanford owes hundreds of millions of dollars in federal taxes. The records show four federal tax liens against Stanford totaling more than $212 million. The liens are from 2007 and 2008. Federal officials charge Stanford with bilking investors out of billions of dollars by claiming unrealistic returns. His bank is closed following a raid on Tuesday.

Stanford is known for an extravagant lifestyle, including private jets, friendships with congressmen and big spending on sport sponsorships and charity.
