The IRS has slapped a tax lein of $819,848 on Sen. John Kerry of Massachusetts, according to a report in the Boston Herald.
"We have made a demand for payment of this liability, but it remains unpaid," says the taxman.
Kerry has responded that it’s all a clerical error.
“The IRS contacted us last year about data they lost from the 2004 campaign," said Kerry spokeswoman Whitney Smith. "We gladly resubmitted all the forms needed to fill in the gaps, end of story."
