    WASHINGTON (AP) -- From workers in Congress and at the White House to active duty troops, more than 318,000 federal employees and retirees owe just over $3.3 billion in back taxes, the Internal Revenue Service said Thursday. That works out to nearly 3.3 percent of all 9.8 million federal workers and retirees who are behind on their taxes, which is significantly lower than the proportion of delinquent taxpayers in the overall population. The IRS said it estimates that to be at least 8.7 percent...

    Meet the recallers. They've developed a powerful antibody to shame. Over the next 29 days, state and local governments will pay $17 MILLION because the left didn’t get their way. It's a funny coincidence that some of the people that signed the recall petitions just happen to owe over $17 MILLION in back taxes and that's only part of the recall list! Have you ever had your lawn get away from you for a while? Maybe your kids have a dance recital or you have family coming into town and you just didn’t have the time to mow it? Eventually,...

"I was late," he said on a conference call with reporters when asked about the recent delinquency. "I misplaced the bill and I paid it as soon as I found out. I paid a penalty for being late,...

    LOS ALTOS, Calif. — No need for tears, but the well-off are losing their master suites and saying goodbye to their wine cellars. The housing bust that began among the working class in remote subdivisions and quickly progressed to the suburban middle class is striking the upper class in privileged enclaves like this one in Silicon Valley. Whether it is their residence, a second home or a house bought as an investment, the rich have stopped paying the mortgage at a rate that greatly exceeds the rest of the population. More than one in seven homeowners with loans in excess...

    NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) -- More than half of all homeowners with modified mortgages fell at least two months behind in their payments a year after the adjustment was made, according to a federal report released Wednesday. However, the data also shows that modifications made in 2009, which emphasized reduced monthly payments, may perform better. Only 40.7% of loans modified in the second quarter last year were delinquent after nine months, compared to 51.6% of those adjusted at the end of 2008, according to the report, published by the Office of Thrift Supervision and Comptroller of the Currency.

When the 23-year-old waitress had her first child, she began paying expenses by credit card. Then she lost her job and her ability to pay bills. Her credit tanked. "I needed a car, but my credit was so bad nobody would give me a loan," Jumbelick said. "I'm a waitress and a single mom with a baby boy. I don't have extra money to put away."...

    When Reps. Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.) and Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.) teamed up in September to get the House to pass an amendment blocking the use of private companies to collect back taxes from delinquent taxpayers, it seemed the Bush administration plan might be doomed for at least a year.

Surveillance cameras inside the 7-Eleven store in Dania Beach show the 16-year-old walk in with his shirt over his head, holding a .22-caliber rifle. He pointed the rifle and the clerk, but then lowered it and began going through his pockets. "[He] remembers he forgot to load it. So he takes time out to reach in...

    Lead poisoning linked to delinquent behaviour January 27 2003 at 06:27AM Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania - Children exposed to lead have a much greater chance of developing delinquent behaviour, researchers say. Dr Herbert Needleman, of the University of Pittsburgh in the United States, examined 194 youths convicted in a juvenile court in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania, and compared them with 146 non-delinquents from high schools in Pittsburgh. He found the delinquent youths had significantly higher average concentrations of lead in their bones - 11 parts per million, compared with 1,5 ppm in the control group. The research, published in the journal Neurotoxicology and...
