Tax Lax in Capitol Hill

Presidential Candidates Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich have been in the news recently for their tax return details. More information shows that many Capitol Hill employees have been neglecting paying their taxes.  In 2008 alone, 447 House employees and 231 Senate workers haven’t paid their taxes. This year’s data from the IRS confirms that there are about $10million in unpaid taxes just from 3 percent of the Senate staffers and 4 percent of the House staffers.
