We’re pretty sure the state of Massachusetts would take cash, check, money order or credit card, but it’s been three months and deadbeat John Kerry still hasn’t paid the taxes on his $7,000,000 yacht.
The Boston Herald has all the taxing details:
You may recall that Kerry lowered the flag and surrendered in July, agreeing to pony up more than $400,000 to cover state taxes on the toney tub. Mr. Teresa Heinz broke out the checkbook four days after the Track set off a furious tempest with our report that he had purchased the 76-foot floating palace and ported her in Rhode Island, thus depriving the commonwealth of its pound of flesh.
A spokesman for the state Department of Revenue confirmed that “a sales tax return was filed” by Kerry last summer to cover state taxes that would have been owed, had he kept the Isabel in his home state’s waters. But according to the Nantucket tax collector, he never paid any excise taxes to the town on the Isabel.
Penalties? Interest? We doubt it.
Because when you’re John Kerry, what’s good for thee is never good for me.
