josh and anna duggarSo much for that infamous Duggar debt-free strategy! Josh Duggar and Anna Duggar are reported to owe $14,000 in back taxes after failing to pay every year between 2009 and 2012. The political-minded eldest child of Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar is now facing thousands of dollars of debt in their home state of Arkansas.


According to an investigation conducted by Radar Online, the married couple owes $3,746.20 for 2012 and $9,908.64 for 2009, 2010, and 2011.

When In Touch Weekly first reported the news on their debt, Josh responded to the magazine and claimed that the debt had been paid in full. Turns out, not so much.

Radar Online is now reporting that the Washington County, Arkansas Circuit Court hasn't received any payments from the famous 19 Kids and Counting couple.

As newlyweds, the couple experienced some financial troubles and ended up with credit card debt. Then, after attending seminars by Jim Sammons, they've managed to restructure their family's economic stance and have paid off all debts.

Maybe this is just Josh's first blip before his soon-to-be newfound financial clarity. Only time will tell.
