The U.S. government filed a civil lawsuit Friday against longtime GOP political consultant Roger Stone, alleging that he owes nearly $2 million in unpaid taxes and penalties.

The suit alleges that Mr. Stone and his wife, Nydia Stone, owe $1.5 million in taxes, penalties and interest for the tax years 2007 through 2011 that were filed jointly. It further alleges that Mr. Stone owes another $400,000 in taxes and penalties on his 2018 income taxes, which were filed separately from his spouse.

Mr. Stone didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.
