Dont know about the tax issue,although the extortion point seems to be valid.
You are entitled to negotiate the increase or even refuse to pay it alltogether then the ball is in the landlords court.
Depending on how you feel about it try offering $1650 like it or lump it.If he refuses to negotiate then refuse his increase totally,he would have to try to evict you and if he is cheating he may not be keen to do this!(you may legally refuse to pay an increase)
Good luck
