PER WICKSTOM OWES $1.2 MILLION IN DELINQUENT FEDERAL INCOME TAX: Leins Filed In Florida's Pinellas County & Michigan's Calhoun County Against Wickstrom and Wife Svetlana

UPDATE: DECEMBER 12: Mary McConnell reports on “Reaching For The Tipping Point” that Per Wickstrom filed for divorce from his wife, Svetlana, on August 26, 2019, in Florida's Pinellas County.

And just days ago, on December 3, 2019, the IRS issued another federal tax lien against Per Wickstrom—$1,828,671 in delinquent taxes for the tax period ending December 31, 2018, bringing Wickstrom's total delinquency to $3,039,264.


Michigan's most infamous Scientology huckster, Per Wickstrom, and his wife Svetlana, have been slapped with a tax lein for $1,210,593, according to documents filed in Florida's Pinellas County in late August. 

Per Wickstrom is the CEO and Founder of Best Drug Rehabilitation and Choices Recovery.

The lien was placed against one of Wickstrom's Florida properties, a six-bedroom, 5,400 square foot home in Clearwater (shown above), a town that's home to hundreds of Scientology-linked properties and businesses. 

Wickstrom purchased the home in 2017 for just under $1.0 million.

If he sells the property, Uncle Sam will see to it that he gets his money back before Wickstrom makes a dime. 

The lien was also filed against the Wickstroms in Michigan's Calhoun County.


In January 2017, Wickstrom acquired a gated waterfront estate in Safety Harbor, Florida for $6.9 million, making it the most expensive home in Pinellas County.

Publicly available documents confirm Wickstrom cobbled together financing with a $4.0 million 30-year mortgage from a Florida bank, along with a $1.5 million “balloon mortgage” from the home's sellers. 

Also interesting is the fact Wickstrom's luxe Florida pad is managed by his Michigan LLC, Truman Management Company, LLC. Truman is the trustee of “The GMEN Revocable Trust”, and the home's owner. 

Additionally, Wickstrom changed the ownership in 2017 on both a Torch Lake, Michigan home and a Pennfield Township home to “The GMEN Revocable Trust”.

The license for Wickstrom's now-shuttered Serenity Point Recovery in Marne, Michigan, expired on July 31, 2018.
 
The Serenity facility was the focus of a long legal battle, beginning in 2013, leading to its 2015 opening in Wright Township, with the township ultimately forced to pay $50,000 in damages for causing delays in building the facility.

The property hit the market in August 2018, listed at $6.9 million. 

The official listing reveals the property was marked “pending” yesterday, at $2.9 million.

Ottawa County records reveal Wickstrom's TIA Corporation paid $6,500,000 for the property.
