More on Rep. Jamieson

Should Jeanette Jamieson sit on the Ways & Means Committee given her eight year record absconding on taxes? This is, after all, the committee that handles tax writing and enforcement legislation. It kind of sounds like a conflict of interest to me.

Likewise, and more importantly, what the hell is wrong with the Department of Revenue that it took them eight years to find out she was not paying taxes?

How many other people are not paying taxes that the Department of Revenue is clueless about?

    I think the irony of your question is her statement she made to the AJC, “She said she does not know what prompted an audit by the state Revenue Department.”

    http://www.ajc.com/metro/content/metro/stories/2008/02/22/jamieson_0223.html

    The inference is it’s kind of strange that she was actually audited after 8 years of not paying taxes, perhaps is was a conspiracy since she’s a Democrat.

    Here is another quote from her in the AJC that just makes me crack up every time I read it, “Sometimes when you are so busy looking after everybody else’s business, you don’t pay as much attention to your own as you should”

    As if she’s just so dedicated and selfless when it comes to dealing with others, there just wasn’t enough time to file a tax return during the last 8 years. It’s got nothing to do with the $46,ooo.

    Throw Jamieson’s butt in jail for a few nights. Seriously. She won’t be late on her taxes again.
    Sorry honey, but you should be made an example of. Elected officials from either party who don’t pay state taxes??? Say hello to Mr. Jail Cell, if even just for one night.

    And Sharon Beasley-Teague (and her funkadelic hats) can share Jeannette’s cell, after her (alledged) fraudulent 800 miles day trips around the state.

    Y’all are overlooking the “rationale” for Sharon Beasley-Teague’s “driving” 800-900 miles a day from Atlanta to Albany to Savannah to Toccoa and back to Atlanta. This 70 year old Democrat says “she is writing a bill to raise the minimum wage in Georgia and she needs to drive all over Georgia and ask poor minimum wage earners if this is a good bill.” At 44 cents a mile for “official business” – Rep. Beasley-Teague is hosin’ us taxpayers for $396 a day for mileage. I guess Rep. Teasley-Teague would rather “drive” 900 miles a day instead of simply walking upstairs in the Gold Dome and first ask Ben Harbin, then ask the “Tax Jesus”, then go downstairs and ask Gov. Sunshine if they would approve of such a bill. I’m quite sure the answer from all three would be a very LOUD “NO” – make that “HELL NO.” I wonder if Rep. Beasley-Teague had Rep. Jamieson fill out her tax forms when she supposedly stopped over in Toccoa?

    Where is the indictment? That is what they did to former Rep. Scheid. And he was charged with not filng for one year.

    I’m going to guess at least two. One seems a little unlikely …..

  6. Martiros says:

    How Jamieson and Teague managed such corruption even when they were in the minority. Impropriety is usually something reserved for majorities.

    “How many other people are not paying taxes that the Department of Revenue is clueless about?”

    Plenty.

    IMHO, the GaDOR should double or triple the number of auditors.

    The pols of neither party are for that – it makes for bad politics and ensnares some of them.

    Rome,

    I hear what you are saying, but we are wayyyyy past that now.

    Even the Fair???taxers love the DOR and want to expand its already vast powers.

  9. Dave Bearse says:

    What were you expecting from an agency responsible for income tax forms that state: “City (Please insert space if City has multiple names)” that should state “City (Please insert space between multiple words)”? Then there’s the Georgia Form 500 line 8 instruction “Do not enclose other Federal Schedules” followed shortly thereafter by the line 12 instruction “you must enclose Federal Schedule A”.

    Dictionary:
    abscond
    (ăb-skŏnd’) pronunciation

    To leave quickly and secretly and hide oneself, often to avoid arrest or prosecution.

    Jeanette is not in hiding, she has not even left. Delinquency is not a flight of avoidance. Big words should be learned before use.

    It took the Georgia Department of Revenue 6 years to send my little tour company a notice that we had not paid all our 1999 withholding tax. By that time, of course, we had paid it.

    On the other hand, they got a tax refund to me very rapidly this year.

  12. gatormathis says:

    Any suggestions for a new slogan for her tax accounting business?

    How about:

    J. J.’s No Pay
    Tax Accounting Service

    “I hear what you are saying, but we are wayyyyy past that now.”

    No, we’re not. We can certainly get rid of the DOR and IRS, but politicians, lobbyists, and their unlearned sheep followers refuse to budge from a system that gives them power or makes them money at the expense of the taxpayer.
