Gross UP!

About: What Will Become of Geithner?

Well maybe this is a change! A Secretary of the Treasury who is in charge of the IRS who doesn't pay his taxes. The sick part of the scenario is that he was paid a "gross-up" for those taxes which means that essentially his employer paid his taxes. All he had to do was file.
I thought what we needed NOW is a Secretary of the Treasury that pays attention to details. You can't tell me (as the BHO team says) that he is too important to fall. You can't tell me that nobody else is qualified to take the job. There are 300 million people in the US - find another!
Perhaps he is just as corrupt as those who got us into this mess in the first place.

Apparently he has now blamed TurboTax for his tax paying failure. Having used it I say this is blatant & irresponsible. How can he say he can handle the details & software complexity of the nation's treasury & can't use & master TurboTax ??

You should have listened to what he actually said about it being his culpability and not Turbo Tax's and how reluctant he even was to name the company.  I heard that part of the hearing live - so hearing this distortion here is just nauseating.  That being said, i too use Turbo Tax and have experienced places where it looked like i had completed my return and the program verified it, but actually i have skipped some areas that dramatically affected my taxes and the problem was in the area of self employment tax.  There are paths through that software that allow you to miss stuff.  But obviously you cannot blame the software for tax evasion, nor did Geithner.  You really should not repeat blatant lies in trying to emulate your hyperpartisan friends.  Your ending comment on 11299 contains so many distortions that i'm not even going to attempt to UnHack it.  Sorry it is a waste of my time.

Yep! HYPERSPHINCTERMINDEDNESS now prevails here. If you feed the tax program lies or omit income it will give you the corresponding results.  Either this schlum is too stupid to figure out the software (& hence not a candidate for treasury secretary) or he's lying.  I suspect that in the back of his mind he knew about what he was doing all the time. Why didn't he get an accountant? The simple explanation is that he thought he could get away with it.  But now, he will probably get to play with trillions as a reward!
