Another Democrat that doesn't want to pay her fair share?

From 2001 to 2005, Rep. Lois Capps rented a room in her home to a staffer, but failed to report the income to the IRS until this year, the Daily Caller first reported.

Jeremy Tittle, a "case worker" in the California Democrat's district office, took a room in Capps' Santa Barbara home, paying $41,480 during the time he was there.


Capps' staff says the matter has been adequately addressed.


"Capps' accountant filed all her amended returns from 1998-2011 this year, and she has paid them," Capps' campaign spokesman Jeffrey Millman wrote in an email to the website. "As soon as we became aware of this, Lois immediately filed an amended return and cleared it up right away. ... The amended returns are on her website and everybody can look at it."


The error is likely to factor prominently in Capps' 24th District re-election race against Republican former Lt. Gov. Abel Maldonado.

    Believe me she knew what she was doing. These people are mostly all lawyers and lawyers always think the laws don't apply to them. Just another TurboTimmy until they get caught.

    It's called "Do as we say, not as we do."

    And it might also be called "Rank hath its privileges." And that tells you something about where their hearts are.

    She has $10,000 dollars a year that she does not pay taxes on it because she doesn't know it is income or that she must pay taxes on it.
    She is too dumb to hold public office.

    They want everyone else to pay their share. If you audited every politician bet you would find a lot of money that was never paid.

    OK........we vote for these people and put them into government offices because we like their politics, we trust them and we think they are intelligent. Now would an intelligent person not realize that they are collecting revenue from income? When the records are turned over to their CPA's to prepare returns, how did she list the $41,480? Didn't her CPA realize that her income was higher than reported on her W-2's.?

    Wouldn't a CPA or even an accountant ask someone in government if they have paid out or received money in excess of income or expenses?

    I DO! I know so many of the tricks used in defrauding the government that I can usually zero right in to the discrepancies.

    This woman is a cheat!!

    I doubt she listed the $41,480 as income. She just probably put the check in her account or the cash in her purse.

    Unless she laundered it, it would be detectable by an auditor.

    Chances are she wasn't audited by the IRS - her being an honest elected official and all...

    No....I meant by her CPA which I'm sure she retains. If she doesn't, she should. I'm a forensic accountant and I've done many an audit of FBI employees. First thing I ask is about unreported income and remind them that is NOT the time to lie. lol.....

    I've got it now. Sounds like you have a pretty interesting job! Do you do this prior to the employee being hired or after they have worked for a while and something is suspect?

    lol...Uhm, I'm retired now. During the last 12 years of my 35 year career I worked as a licensed fraud investigator and handled the financial interests of an alleged criminal act, i.e. money laundering etc. Or an investigator makes a bust and suddenly he has a new boat. Where did the money come from? Auditing checkbooks, credit card purchases etc usually shows that you spent more than you earned and if you are debt free. Can't spend $400k when your income is $125k! ; } And it was fun!! Very interesting.

    Is something suspect? lol....in my opinion, everyone and everything is suspect!!

    "Do you do this prior to the employee being hired or after they have worked..." No. People hired us to investigate employees, husbands, wives, ex-wives, etc etc. where the commission of a crime is strongly suspected. Or a business owner whose employee claims he was robbed when taking the days receipts to the bank or someone who claims through their insurance company that a valuable necklace was stolen......

    It certainly does look that way. Wonder what would happen to us if we failed to claim income for years? Do you think the IRS would let us "amend" 13 years of taxes?
