Sebelius just recently became a full fledged volunteer! Wisdom says: March 31, 2009 at 10:28 pm Kind of funny story of my own. Yesterday, I got a letter from the IRS telling me that I failed to claim $25K worth of income from the 07 tax year, and that I owed them about $9K in back taxes and penalties. Turns out that I was reported as the owner of a million+ dollar CD that is really owned by a political subdivision that I’ve been on the board of for the last eight years. This should be a joy to get fixed….then again, maybe it’s not so funny… I wish it was my million… Locks says: April 1, 2009 at 3:03 am As a governor she gets a W2 as does her husband the Judge. They probably have some investment income, but why is it so hard to file an accurate return? Lightbringer says: April 1, 2009 at 5:08 am Good Lord. We need to start demanding yearly audits for every elected official at the state and federal levels. Mike's America says: April 1, 2009 at 6:44 am @Wisdom: Congratulations! When do you take up your appointment in the Obama cabinet? @Locks: Apparently they deducted mortgage interest for two years after they sold the house it was based on. Ooops! chris says: April 1, 2009 at 5:27 pm There is an element of pure BS in the governor’s statement. Get past the “charitable deductions” and “business expenses that were not deducted due to AMT” or the “home sold for less than the mortgage” baloney. You are being asked to believe that the governor sold her home and the bank that held the mortgage and the buyer of the home did not clear the title by extinguishing the first mortgage or other liens. Didn’t happen. They knew exactly when the mortgage ceased to exist and had to personally sign mountains of paper or give a power of attorney for that specific deal. Unless this was some sort of cozy deal between friends, there were registered liens, 1098’s and simple paperwork tied to the mortgage and sale.

But on the other hand, she will become a burden for the entire nation. If it was you or me that “forgot” to do our taxes correctly, all hell would break loose from the IRS. Sensing a definite double standard on this one. Or more precisely, on everyone of his nominees.
