Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (who has been well-coveredby TWI) pays some back taxes.
The governor’s office wouldn’t say this week how much she owes in back taxes for meal money, or whether she intends to continue to receive the per diem allowance. As of December, she was still charging the state for meals and incidentals.
“The amount of taxes owed is a private matter,” Sharon Leighow, Palin’s spokeswoman, said in an e-mail. “If the governor collects future per diem, those documents would be a matter of public record.”
We’ve actually known about this since last October. Here’s an opportunity for conservatives to wind the anti-Daschle and anti-Geithner cases into one big case for tax simplification, but based on a quick scan of the blogs it seems like they’re ignoring it.
