Rep. Charles Rangel Claims Tax Cheat Claims Are Bogus

boo_hoo

This is laughable. Rep. Charles Rangel (D-Lame), the TAX CHEATER, smugly calling the private sector out on “violating the public trust.” When the tables get turned he once again gets a little huffy claiming what some journalist has reported on concerning his tax dodging is basically a bunch of crap.

My question is, if this dirtbag Charles Rangel’s tax cheating ways were so inaccurately reported then why did he PAY part of the back taxes he has owed for years? Hmmmm?

Rep. Charles Rangel will file amended federal, state and city tax returns and pay up to thousands of dollars in back taxes and as he tries to quell a controversy over his private financial dealings, according to a person familiar with his plans.

The New York Democrat, who wields congressional oversight of the federal tax code as chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, is expected to hold a news conference Wednesday to respond to questions raised in recent weeks about his compliance with congressional disclosure rules and his tax returns, according to his attorney.

It’s unclear how much in back taxes Mr. Rangel owes. The amended returns will cover the past three years of federal, New York state and city taxes, and the payment to each jurisdiction is expected to be up to thousands of dollars, according to the person close to Mr. Rangel. His advisers have spent days poring over his finances and Mr. Rangel has asked them determine how much he owes beyond the three years, the person familiar with the issue said.

In recent days, Lanny Davis, Washington attorney for Mr. Rangel, disclosed that the congressman didn’t report on his taxes more than $75,000 in rental income on a villa he owned at the Punta Cana Yacht Club, in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. Documents released on Mr. Rangel’s behalf also showed he paid no interest for a mortgage used to purchase the beach property. Mr. Davis said the financial issues were mistakes and unintentional.

Yeah it always a mistake and unintentional when these shyster Democrats like the clown the who now runs the Treasury Department and by default the IRS, Timothy Geithner and Obama’s now former Health and Human Services nominee Tom Daschle (among many others that bowed out or were called out after their selection by Obama) just blow off paying their taxes on time. I wonder what these hairballs know that us stupid law abiding tax paying suckers…………don’t?
