A South Carolina State Senator is staring down some serious tax problems, according to documents obtained by FITS.

Sources provided our website with documentation of multiple tax liens filed by the Internal Revenue Service against S.C. Sen. Karl B. Allen (D-Greenville) – documents which were authenticated via an online search of Greenville County public records.

According to the documents, Allen owes the Internal Revenue Service tens of thousands of dollars dating back to 2006 – although two liens were filed against him as recently as February of this year.

One of the addresses listed on the liens matches the address used by Allen in the S.C. Legislative Manual (and included on his official legislative webpage). The other is an address of one of his previous residences.

The largest lien – totaling $173,249 – was filed in 2006. Two years later a lien in the amount of $21,589 was filed.

In 2012 two liens – one totaling $26,863 and another totaling $1113 – were filed.

This year two additional liens – one totaling $9,822 and another totaling $51,062 – were filed.

Allen, 53, is an attorney who was elected to the S.C. House of Representatives in 2000. After a dozen years in the House, he was elected to the State Senate last November.

Notice that he has TEN YEARS to refile his return. There is no final payment date. Technically, as long as there is a Democrat in the White House, the IRS could extend the payment due date indefinitely.

Not if it read like this: S.C. Sen. Karl B. Allen (R-Greenville).

This situation makes me wonder why Democrats are so committed to raising taxes and/or keeping taxes where they are. If I were a Republican, and I got slammed for being late on taxes, I’d just say “see, this is why we need lower taxes.” What can dems say? “Do as I say, not as I do?”

Then both of them are tax cheats, wouldn’t you say?

I don’t if DeMint was a “tax cheat.” Maybe he just didn’t have the money to pay them.

Hopefully, that won’t be a problem for him now that Heritage is paying him a million a year.

Why do politicians campaign on ethics, Constitutional Law, transparency, budget control, etc? Then after being elected we turn right around and the Politician has hands dirtier than a coal miner. Knowing what I know about myself I would be too embarrassed to seek elected office and have all my closet skeletons exposed.
