In his filing, DMX claimed to have roughly $50,000 in assets and somewhere between $1 million and $10 million worth of debt to various creditors. His debts included $1.24 million in child support. DMX's attorney released a statement that explained his debts have restricted the rapper from obtaining a passport for many years.

In 2017 he appeared in court charged with 14 counts of tax fraud for about $1.7 million. In March 2018 DMX he was sentenced to one year in prison for tax evasion.

The government will garnish his income until the debt is paid and he will be expected to make monthly payment installments.
