Tom Daschle Has Tax Problems Too?

By  | 

I can understand forgetting that the use of a car is considered income, but note that Daschle didn’t even report earned income too.

From ABC:

ABC News has obtained the Senate Finance Committee Report on Tom Daschle’s nomination to be Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services, which indicates that Daschle’s tax problems were even more substantial than earlier reported.

The report indicates that Daschle’s failure to pay more than $101,000 taxes on the car and driver a wealthy friend let him use from 2005 through 2007 is not the only tax issue the former Senate Majority Leader has been dealing with since his December nomination prompted a more thorough examination of his income tax returns.

Mr. Daschle also didn’t report $83,333 in consulting income in 2007.

Come on folks, just pay your share already. As if it’s that hard?

More as it develops…
