Haha: Why Don’t Broadcasters Pay Taxes?

leave a comment »

First Franken (or his accountant, who he blames), now Keith Olberman, from the highly unbiased blog “Olbermann Watch“:

New York State has issued a tax warrant against Keith Olbermann for failure to pay taxes on his humbly named personal corporation, Olbermann Broadcasting Empire, Inc. Olbermann is listed in legal records as the President of Olbermann Broadcasting Empire, Inc.

The amount appears to be fairly trivial for a man who recently closed on a $4.2m condo ($2,269.50). Must be the damn accountant’s error again. Of course, in the accounting trade, we’re all negligent like that.

Its laughable that someone who is so well off had a warrant issued for such a trivial amount. Why not just avoid paying all of your tax bill? States require your Federal 1040 numbers to determine theirs, so maybe he just couldn’t bear to take advantage of W’s tax cuts. Its painful, I know.
