The tax records of D12 members Denaun "Mr. Porter" Porter and Von "Kuniva" Carlisle have been released online showing the emcees owe over $215,000 to the government.

Kuniva's wife has also been named in tax liens.

The state of Michigan filed a $16,590.07 lien against Von Carlisle and his wife on June 16 in the Ingham County Register of Deeds office. According to the lien, they owe income taxes from 2008. The IRS filed a $137,702.62 lien against Carlisle and his wife on Jan. 12, according to the Oakland County Register of Deeds. They owe income taxes from 2004-06, according to this public record. The IRS filed a $61,501.99 lien against Denaun Porter on May 1, 2008, for unpaid taxes, according to the New York City Register's office. (Detroit News)

Mr. Porter has confirmed the debt and said he planned to pay it off in the next few months.

"I'm not questioning the IRS," he said in a statement. "It could have been a combination of not paying enough (taxes), it could have been them not accepting enough write-offs. Take my publishing checks. I'll make money elsewhere. I'm done with them at the end of the year." (Statement)

Aside from legal issues, Eminem recently confirmed his rap group's upcoming reunion.

"Me and the guys, we got a bond, it's special," Shady said in an interview earlier this summer. "It's like, as far as the future of D12, we're gonna be back in the studio soon." (Rap City Special)

D12's Bizarre spoke on the status of his rap group in an interview earlier this year.

"Everybody's in D12 and we're doing good," Bizarre told radio personality Jenny Boom Boom. "[A new album] is definitely going to happen. We're working on it right now, Marshall Mathers is coming out first with Relapse...I'm on Eminem's album...I'm recording a couple of songs. Big up to Dr. Dre." (Jenny Boom Boom TV)
