Sebelius admits errors, pays $7,000 in back taxes
WASHINGTON – Health and Human Services nominee Kathleen Sebelius recently corrected three years of tax returns and paid more than $7,000 in back taxes after finding "unintentional errors" — the latest tax troubles for an Obama administration nominee. The Kansas governor explained the changes to senators in a letter dated Tuesday that the administration released. She said they involved charitable contributions, the sale of a home and business expenses.
And now we see that the IRS is corrupt from top (Geithner) to bottom:
IRS Auditor Pleads Guilty to Tax Evasion
n Internal Revenue Service agent who audits taxpayers in California has agreed to plead guilty to cheating on his own taxes.
In a plea agreement filed Monday in Orange County, 43-year-old Jim H. Liu (LOO) of Diamond Bar admitted that he filed a tax return claiming a loss on a real estate transaction when he in fact saw a large profit.
He pleaded guilty to one federal count of subscribing to a false tax return, a charge that carries a penalty of up to three years in prison.
According to the plea agreement, Liu sold a property in Pomona in 2002 for a profit of more than $48,000, but reported a loss of $4,200 on his taxes.
The tax loss to the government was more than $14,000.
****Does the phrase "tax loss to the government" somehow imply that the government has first dibs on your money? ****
