We all knew that Ahhnold was a RINO but he didn't quite seem "Democratic" enough for a position in the Obama White House. It is now official, Schwarzenegger is qualified.
Schwarzenegger Will Refile Tax Information to Clear IRS Lien
SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger will refile tax information to clear an IRS lien for nearly $80,000 after a celebrity Web site posted an IRS document showing Schwarzenegger owed the money, his spokesman said Friday.
The Web site TMZ.com posted a "notice of federal tax lien" filed in May with the Los Angeles County Recorder's Office. The document showed Schwarzenegger owes $39,047 in taxes, fines or penalties from 2004 and $40,016 from 2005.
Schwarzenegger's spokesman, Aaron McLear, said a representative of the governor contacted the IRS Friday and determined there was a "paperwork tracking discrepancy."
"The governor had not been notified of any discrepancy or of the lien until today," McLear said in a statement. "The governor is resubmitting certain information to the IRS and we fully expect that the matter will be resolved and the lien expunged without any penalty assessed upon the governor."
He said the issue is "completely unrelated to the payment of taxes, which the governor has paid in full and on time."
The tax code referenced on the lien indicates it may be for failing to file correct returns. IRS spokesman Dean Patterson said the agency cannot comment on individual cases.
