Math is Hard

Kansas Governor Kathleen Sebelius has become the latest potential Obama administration nominee to be called out for past tax problems.

In her case, Sebelius paid roughly $7000 for "mistakes" over a three year period. Hardly a Tom Daschle-esque calamity, but still, what the heck is it with such a large number of government officials being seemingly unable to accurately account for and pay their taxes?

Could it be that everybody does their taxes wrong? EVERYBODY?

And perhaps there's a clue in our federal tax code. Title 26 of the US Code of Federal Regulations runs 13,458 pages and is made up of twenty volumes. You can buy it from the US Government Printing Office if you'd like.

Or keep using TurboTax. Just don't try to get a job in a presidential administration.
