Kyle Chrisley spoke out against estranged dad Todd Chrisley this week, telling ABC News he hopes the reality star is "held accountable" in the investigation of his Georgia state income taxes.

In a bombshell new interview, Kyle slammed his famed father, saying, "I'd like to see him held accountable."

As Radar readers know, the Chrisley Knows Best patriarch has been accused of lying about his state of residence to avoid paying taxes, which, if found to be true, could lead to charges of tax evasion or perjury.

According to ABC News, official records reveal Chrisley declared himself a legal Georgia resident in numerous court filings from 2010 and 2011.

Meanwhile, Kyle says his father bragged about avoiding tax payments in Georgia.

When asked if he was a Florida resident, where Todd has claimed to live, Kyle answered, "No. We went there for really vacation for in the summer and that was really the only time we ever went. We lived here in Georgia."

Even Chrisley's wife Julie copped to residing in Georgia, confessing under oath in 2013 deposition for the family's bankruptcy proceeding that neither she nor Todd lived in Florida.

But during a recent radio interview, Todd claimed he has been a longtime resident of the sunshine state: "I have been a Florida resident over 15 years, so my taxes have always been filed and if I don't make money in Georgia, I don't pay taxes on it in Georgia."

In a statement to ABC News, Chrisley called the scandal "a complex tax issue" that should be determined privately, adding that he's "confident my liability will be significantly reduced or hopefully eliminated."

Chrisley is currently living in Nashville where there is no state income tax, reports ABC News.
