Sweet Irony: Democratic Club Fails to Pay Property Taxes

Sweet Irony: Democratic Club Fails to Pay Property Taxes

Share this

Every now and then a blog post comes along that makes my day. But Russ Fox of Taxable Talk has written Taxes are for the Other Party that has made my month:

The Democratic National Committee has a private club (the National Democratic Club) in Washington, DC. I guess that’s not surprising–with so many politicians in Washington, a club makes sense. But even political parties (and their clubs) must pay their taxes.

In what must be described as an “Oops” moment (or moments), the DNC and the National Democratic Club missed paying their property taxes. Well, mistakes happen.

But it turns out that this mistake repeated, and repeated: Pajamas Media reports that their have been 16 missed payments during the last seven years; this has caused fines, interest, and penalties that exceed $115,000.

Let’s cue Leona Helmsley: “Only the little people pay taxes.”

CA-LASSIC!
