Does Gov. Schwarzenegger Owe the IRS $79,000?

November 28, 2009

(ChattahBox)—TMZ, a celebrity gossip site, is reporting that California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger owes the IRS nearly $80,000 in back taxes. The Los Angeles County Recorder’s Office shows an active tax lien on all properties owned by the former body builder and action-movie star.

The IRS lien was filed on May 11, 2009 at the Los Angeles County Recorder’s Office for $79,064, according to the publicly available electronic records. The lien record lists the debtor, as Arnold Schwarzenegger and his home address in Brentwood, CA.

The lien document shows that Schwarzenegger owes $39,047.20 from 2004 and $40,016.80 from 2005.

However, a spokesman for the governor has issued a statement saying, that Schwarzenegger has paid all of his taxes. Schwarzenegger’s spokesman Aaron McLear said, the “governor has paid his taxes in full and on time,” and that he has not been notified of a problem.

“No one, including the IRS, has notified the governor of any issues whatsoever with his taxes,” McLear said.

McLear added that the lien documents appear to reference a penalty for missing information and not for unpaid taxes. Schwarzenegger’s own records will be checked for any discrepancies.

IRS spokesman, Dean Patterson, was unable to comment on individual tax cases.
