Arnold Schwarzenegger: I'll Be Back Taxes

11/27/2009 7:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The United States government might have a bigger budget to work with -- if one bodybuilding governor would pay the back taxes it appears he never got around to paying.



According to documents filed in L.A. County Superior Court, Arnold Schwarzenegger owes the IRS $39,047 from 2004 and $40,016 from 2005.

In total the Guv owes $79,064.00 ... and as we all know, he's definitely not saving the money for rainy day traffic violations.

An official at the L.A. County Recorder's Office tells TMZ their system shows the lien is still active.

Arnold's rep released the following statement: "No one, including the IRS, has notified the governor of any issues whatsoever with his taxes. We are contacting the IRS to determine if the document in question, which appears to be a penalty for missing info and not for unpaid taxes, is legitimate and if there is any discrepancy to resolve."

He took California and dumped on it and ran it into the ground. His wife and him don't care about traffic laws as if they are entitled beings from another planet which i think they are from another planet but not entitled. Keep up the good work on them TMZ and show keep on showing us who these 2 really are!

Gee, why would he follow the law? He is just the governor of California.
I guess this is a case do as I say not as I do.
He expects us to follow the laws and pay our taxes, and abide by the road laws, but yet he nor his wife can't follow anything.
And we elected him why?

What gives with policitians and rich people just conviently forgetting to pay their taxes and blaming it on their accountants. If I forgot to pay my taxes the IRS would be hounding me, garnishing my paycheck, threatening me with jail time and seizing my property. Something wrong here

If This is True.........Its hard to believe.... Two very self absorbed people.. They park where they want, owe huge taxes? The average person would be in jail with those back owed tax amounts. Who keeps re electing him? Tisk tisk

@ "IRiS guy" I'm sure they file seperately. But Arnold is a REPUBLICAN if you are really interested in that angle of the story.

Only in CA would you people cry about this. Arnold didn't create this mess, that LIBERAL POS Gray Davis did. You boneheads on the west coast have no clue and don't know what you want. Arnold held off as long as he could before he was FORCED by YOUR bleeding heart LIBERAL state senate to enact them. You better start to buck up, that SOCIALIST, BOWING, APOLOGIZING PREZ that you DF elected hasn't even started taxing you yet!!!! You deserve what you got!!

Only marry foreign women    

The wife ought to get stop driving around town and help out around the house a little.

TMZ is sexist, blaming the man of the house first, when the wife is equal.
