Annie McKluster Doesn’t Pay Her Taxes? [Updated & Bumped]

by Steve MacDonald

Ann Kuster doesn't pay her property taxes?

Ann Kuster: “Property taxes? What property taxes?”

The New Hampshire Young Republicans (NHYR) want to know why Congress-critter Ann McLane Kuster (I prefer McKluster) is worth an estimated $1.8 million dollars but can’t manage to pay her property taxes?

“While Annie Kuster pushes a message that we all need to chip in a little extra, she has failed to pay her fair share. Yesterday we realized that a tax-and-spend liberal member of Congress is delinquent on her own taxes. Time and again, Uncle Sam’s cup is passed around and we are told to dig a little deeper. When the cup was passed to Annie Kuster, she didn’t chip in.

I can understand if she was late on a payment or if there was just a simple oversight, but this is not a one-time mistake. Kuster has been delinquent 6 times for over $40,000 in property taxes owed to the towns of Hopkinton and Jackson. With a reported net worth of $1.8 Million (Center for Responsive Politics) how can she in good faith and with any level of moral authority ask any more of the American people than she does of herself.

This arrived in my in-box, and I don’t have a link or details, so I’m just reporting what I received… but we’ll follow up with more information as it becomes available.

Update: As it tuns out the original source of the story was James Pindell at WMUR.

When she was sworn in to Congress in early January, Kuster owed $14,089.32 in delinquent property taxes on her Hopkinton home. She has since made a tax payment and currently owes $6,998.22 in past-due property taxes on that property. This pattern of not paying her taxes dates back to 2010, according to the records. On the property in Jackson, she didn’t pay either of the semi-annual tax bills in 2012 and owes $3,851.65.

I guess James Pindell can add “tax collector” to his resume because the morning after his report about the Democrat Rep who “forgot” to pay her taxes Mr. McKluster hopped in the McKluster-mobile and paid some of them (according to the Union Leader…)

Kuster’s husband walked into Hopkinton tax collector’s office Tuesday morning and paid $7,055 in remaining overdue property taxes on their primary home following a report that they have been consistently late in making such payments over the past two years.

Charles Gangel, the Hopkinton town clerk and tax collector, said attorney Bradford Kuster on Tuesday morning personally paid the remaining bill, which consisted of $6,973 for an overdue payment from last year and $82 in interest. He said the Kuster account is now current.

Kuster issued a statement from her Washington office on Tuesday saying the Jackson payment was “en route” and the Hopkinton bill had been paid.
 
Jackson assistant tax collector Karen Burton said she had not yet received the payment as of Tuesday at 4:30 p.m.

Meanwhile, New Hampshire Democrat Party chair Ray Buckley was playing the Republican Hypocrisy card because incoming NHGOP chair Jennifer Horn has a tax lien on her own property.  But Horn seems to have handled that well enough. (Same link to the Union Leader as above)

“I have been honest about the struggles that my family faced after my husband lost his job, and we stepped up on our own to pay our obligations,” Horn said.

“Congresswoman Kuster is a millionaire lobbyist-turned-politician who had the means to pay her taxes, but chose not to do so until she was caught red-handed by the media. Her continued refusal to explain to her constituents why she deliberately chose not to pay her taxes raises very serious questions that must be answered,” said Horn.

I can explain it.  She’s obviously plowing the earth for a juicy cabinet position in the Obama Administration.  Maybe McKluster could be the czar of swearing at people and taking their stuff?

And while I know there are far too many Democrat tax cheats for even Obama to give them all jobs isn’t that where all the tax cheats seem to want to be? Like a moth to the flame.  And let’s not forget about this…

 Not very patriotic of them, now is it?

      WMUR was all over it….second month into the nw congress. (Thanks Media), Not sure it would have saved the Bass-master though.

    Maybe she’s just following Geithner’s “Tax Tips for the Liberatti”.

      Only the “little people” pay taxes…

      • mer

        Great mimes think alike. My first thought on hearing this was “Ok, just like 90% of the democrats in DC”

    • gadsdengurl

      Geithner, Rangel, Sharpton, and many more… double standard.

      • nhsteve

        Sebelius, Hilda Solis Husband, and 36 members of Obama’s executive staff as off Jun 2012…

        [quote] A new report just out from the Internal Revenue Service reveals that 36 of President Obama’s executive office staff owe the country $833,970 in
        back taxes. These people working for Mr. Fair Share apparently haven’t
        paid any share, let alone their fair share.[end quote]

    Maybe she is a tax protester? If so, why don’t they raid her home, and drag her off and torture her in jail like they did to the Browns? I could go for that.. heh.

    • C. dog e. doG

      I’ll be sure to bring her some good home cooking to sustain her through the battle with the Federalés: arugula salad laced with codeine.

            farther than that.

  • Ralph

    When I heard this last night I couldn’t believe it. To make matters worse it was such a non story on the news. I hope people keep talking about this

    • C. dog e. doG

      Keep talking, Ralph.

    In AZ. if someone does not pay their property taxes you can pay them. After 3 years (i think) you can then call Sherriff Joe and he will kick said delinquent off their land, cuz now you own it. The people can catch up on their taxes, but to do so they have to repay you, up to 16% interest.
    So, you can own your property outright but get behind on property tax at which time (3 years) the Gov. can auction it off or someone can evict you. I got a buddy who does this. He shows up with the Sherriff and offers to rent the property back to the owner. Gotta love it. If you think you “own” your propety, stop paying tax, you will find out who really owns it. You may pay off your mortgage, but it ins never really yours, the rent just goes down. Property ownership….another in a long line of illusions.

    • C. dog e. doG

      Yet another nice catch, Crispy. I’ve noted for nye on a decade real estate is owned by the Grate State, and We, the Suckers of Uncle Sam Land, whether it be the terrarium of New Hamster or crAZy Land, pay to rent it … ‘cuz we’re stewards, or serfs, or somefin’. Sure is sum difficult livin’ free in Amerika.

        Yuppers. The lengths we will go to preserve, protect, and propagate the illusions we hold so deer are amazing.

        Having traveled half the world, and despite its many issues, i still would rather be here then most places though.

        I know everyone can justify it to themselves, but having been around a little i have never been anywhere where so many people snivvle about so much as here. Probably why i do not get to involved. All the compalining wears me down a little. I guess i’m just too fragile and sensitive ;(

        CPB- Knows the new boss will be the same as the old boss.

            cpb- circling like a satalite.

          • C. dog e. doG

            Naw, RINO’s fall from grace on their own petard like mana from heaven. But how does one cheat on taxes, is it like cheating on a wife because your braking for social contract theories on invisible terms and conditions of servitude?
