Skip to comments.The Latest Obama Cabinet Member with a Tax Problem: Eric Holder
Posted on 04/17/2011 4:16:36 PM PDT by PROCON
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.

He needs to resign. What a disgrace.
Pray for America
I’ve always known that Holder was a deadbeat.
Democrats don’t pay taxes. Everyone has to be patriotic but them.
I’m shocked -—SHOCKED.
When he dies, they’ll have to screw him into the ground.
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?
You can’t make it up!
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.
Come-on, he's from the privileged class, rules don't apply to him...../s
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
and this creep says we are COWARDS?
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.
“We don’t pay taxes. Only the little people pay taxes...”
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.
