Another Democrat With Tax Troubles

This time it’s Senator Claire McCaskill (D-MO).

In a conference call Monday afternoon, McCaskill revealed that after her own review of the plane’s records, she had not paid personal property taxes on the aircraft over the past four years.

“I have discovered that the personal property taxes on the plane have not been paid.  There should have been a reporting to the county of the existence of this plane.   There are people I could blame for this, but I know better. I take full responsibility,” McCaskill said to reporters, after revealing she had conducted her own audit of all 89 flights she had taken.

“This was a mistake, It should have been reported in Missouri.  It will be paid in Missouri today,” she said.

McCaskill said she would be sending a check for $287,273 to St. Louis County Monday for the back taxes she owed between 2007 and 2010.  She also said she had campaign lawyers looking into the flights to determine if any more in-kind contributions needed to be reported to be in compliance.

What is it with the members of the Party of Tax The Rich not paying their own taxes?

    Reading that story it looks like she may have been too smart for herself by half when it came to auditing practices. A Delaware corporation for a Missouri politician. Bad decision.

    Here you’d be surprised at the number of politicos who own mega RV’s licensed in neighboring states. Strange. Back in the day we found one hole-in-the-wall Oregon mail drop [had only 8 feet of highway frontage] that over two hundred CA RV owners called their second home. Must have been crowded at times.
