ANOTHER Obama appointee who didn't pay taxes,

and got a very nice deal from the IRS. As Insty says, "I don’t even want to hear anyone in this Administration talk about tax increases, when they can’t seem to staff it with people who have actually, you know, paid their taxes on time."
And, let's note, keep getting far nicer treatment from the IRS than plain old Joe or Jane Citizen would.

Jammie Wearing Fool notes this:
Ms. Marshall may fare better because, after ultimately filing the 2005 and 2006 federal and local paperwork, she was entitled to $37,259 in refunds, according to data she provided to Mr. Lugar.
Ok, how the hell rich do you have to be to not file when you've got money- especially that kind of money- coming back? This flat smells.

What I find even more interesting is that her husband is a doctor. My father is a retired physician and for the last 50 years he has been filing quarterly taxes and has been audited on a regular basis because he is a physician.

as for saying the Post Office lost the tax filing, didn't this couple think to use a register receipt requested. ie get a green postcard showing when the item was sent and when it was received? Dont they keep copies of their filings

And didn't their accountant keep a copy, dated and all? The ones I've known are kind of picky about things like that.
