    Maybe it was the same accountants the Clintons used.

    In 1994 The Clintons paid the Internal Revenue Service and the Arkansas state government $14,615 in back taxes and interest, after failing to report profits from a commodities-trading venture to the IRS. They said it was simply a mistake, an "oversight".

    Democrats seem to have a little trouble reporting income and keeping their taxes straight.

    Clintons’ Charity Not Listed On Senate Disclosure Forms

    Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton and former president Bill Clinton have operated a family charity since 2001, but she failed to list it on annual Senate financial disclosure reports on five occasions.

    The Ethics in Government Act requires members of Congress to disclose positions they hold with any outside entity, including nonprofit foundations.

    Hillary Clinton has served her family foundation as treasurer and secretary since it was established in December 2001, but none of her ethics reports since then have disclosed that fact.

    The foundation has enabled the Clintons to write off more than $5 million from their taxable personal income since 2001, while dispensing $1.25 million in charitable contributions over that period.

    Clinton’s spokesman said her failure to report the existence of the family foundation and the senator’s position as an officer was an "oversight."

    If these people can't keep track of their OWN finances and taxes, how on earth can we trust them with OURS?

    It's too late now. He's in already. Isn't it funny that it's NO BIG DEAL. Obama says no one is above the law? Except his exceptions. The media seemed to gloss over the issue, but if it were a Republican! ! We would never be hearing the end of it. Things are changing alright. Not for the better. Have Integrity and Truth been forgotten?? LIke Geithners Income Taxes.

    specific, i think of there could have been. I additionally be attentive to that if an IRS worker underpays their taxes (even a mistake), they promptly lose their activity. My chum has been an legal expert for the IRS for years and he or she must be very careful in view that is instantaneous dismissal even with the reason. they'd overpay, yet no longer underpay. What makes it even worse is that he did no longer pay for 4 years, while he found out, he purely paid 2! Why? because of the fact the statute of obstacles had run out on the different 2. How's that for a guy with integrity?!

    Tim did his own taxes and he didn't screw up. At the time he was at the world bank. He was the head of the NYC Federal reserve before he informed O that he had been chosen as the Treasury Secretary. In fact, he was the one who "consulted with" (delivered) the "Stimulus" plan to Secretary Paulson. You see, this guy ain't just a banker he is the Crown Prince of Bankers. He knew that he had trillions coming to him so it was a waste of time for him to pay taxes in the first place. That show in the Senate was for our entertainment and distraction.

    no it was him. Turbo tax he said. He was told to pay before the announcement and he still only paid for one 2 year period. Then they told him to go back and pay the other 2 before his announcement to the cabinet.

    It is a joke isn't it.? Well, when we do not pay our taxes could our legal defense be that he did not either????????
