SC

EDDIE PHIPPS OWES BIG BUCKS

Remember Eddie Phipps? He’s the guy who has confused being a Lowcountry ambulance chaser and DUI attorney for CSI cast member status.

Phipps is also a candidate for S.C. House District 110 (map here), which means his business dealings are now very much under the microscope.

Including his tax filings …

According to public tax records obtained by this website, Phipps has some serious liability associated with his recent individual income tax returns.  How much liability?  Nearly $90,000 worth, according to documents from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and the S.C. Department of Revenue (SCDOR).

Take a look …

Yikes …

So … what gives?

“He is disputing his total tax liability,” said Jon Parker, Phipps’ campaign advisor (and an ally of neo-Confederate political consultant Richard Quinn).  “That dispute is near resolution but will not be fully resolved until after 2015 filing is finalized.”

In a follow-up phone conversation, Parker said the tax issues involve a dispute over quarterly filings.  SCDOR records indicate at least on previous state tax lien filed against Phipps back in 2012 for a little over $7,000.
