If President Obama is serious about tax increases (sorry, I meant to say “spending reductions in the tax code”) and increasing overall tax revenue, he should start by first calling a cabinet meeting and ordering everybody in the room to pony up what they owe.

From the New York Post by way of JWF:

US Attorney General Eric Holder and his brother failed to pay the property taxes on their childhood home in Queens, which they inherited last August after their mother died, The Post has learned.

I’ve always known that Holder was a deadbeat.

Mortgages are paid off but taxes are forever. The house was purchasd 50 years ago so any idea that they forgot the taxes is bogus because they’ve been paid for the last 25 years. Who paid them?, I grew up 10 blocks from Holder. I pay the taxes for my aunt and uncle’s house there because they are infirm. I do it online. I don’t forget. How did Holder forget?

Okay, folks, there are lots of reasons Holder should be gone, but not having instantaneously straightened out a tax mess left by his departed mother is not one of them.

I had to file a revised income tax return a few years back because my step-mother represented some money she sent me as having been a gift, when it should have been treated as a distribution from my father’s estate. This was discovered about midway through the three years it took my brother (a Washington lawyer) to sort though the chaotic condition of the financial records she left, get all the taxes paid and the like.

Hell Prescott Valley AZ threatened to put my property up for auction because the sewer assessment hadn’t been paid on time. And it was supposed to be paid out of our impound account. But because the bank that serviced our loan went into recivership and the new bank that services the loan didn’t pay it, we had to make a cash payment within a week of the notification. How do these clowns get away with so much!

I prefer to call it "kinetic revenue enhancement".

That said, Eric Holder is, was, and always will be a disgrace.

“How did Holder forget?”

Same way he forgot to prosecute the New Black Panthers who intimdated people at the polling place in Philly.

Honest mistake /sarc

My Mom just gave me $1,000.00, so I have cut my budget by $1,000.00. This is Obama’s spending cut in the tax code on a small scale.

What a stupid moron (no offense meant to morons).

If there were any real justice, Eric The Red would be taken into custody.

Maybe Holder got so engrossed in figuring out how to sue Arizona for more and more stuff he just overlooked it.

I'm sure he'll pay attention now.

“How do these clowns get away with so much!”

The laws don’t apply to Democrat tax cheats. Tim Geithner and Charlie Rangel and Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton and Tom Daschle all “forgot” to pay their taxes. They weren’t charged penalties by the very understanding IRS, and some of them are still “negotiating” their payments for years, as Sharpton is. We tax drones would have our wages garnished, house sold, business confiscated, and if that wasn’t enough to satisfy the penaties, we’d go to jail. That’s why people no longer respect our crooked government any more.

I, for some reason, owe $1 on my Fed taxes this year. My accountant laughed.

Guess what, I ain't paying it. Let them sue me. They might. Will report back when they let me on the puter in jail.

Come on Eric, put your skin in the game. Ante up. There are abortions to be performed, and they need your money.

If you are willed a property, or are the sole logical heir (like an only child), can you just say thanks but no thanks? Or can the government tell you that you are the owner and are responsible for taxes on a property, whether you claim ownership, or not?
