Tax Lien on the Governor?


Good morning, Netizens...

[Partial credit LA Times]

I have ignored this news-byte until now because I did not see any of the news wire services pick the story up. However, as of this morning, I was able to verify the unthinkable.

No, this is not about Tiger Woods' car crash, or even the other hot news stories. The IRS has filed an approximate $80,000 tax lien against California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger. The lien was filed May 11 at the Los Angeles County recorder's office for $79,064, according to a record in an electronic database that includes lien filings. The record does not indicate what property the lien was placed on, but it lists the debtor as Arnold Schwarzenegger with the governor's home address in Brentwood.

Oh, dear.

Schwarzenegger's spokesman, Aaron McLear, said in a statement that the "governor has paid his taxes in full and on time."

Maybe. Maybe not.
