Tito Munoz Campaign Fails To Pay Payroll Taxes

By Greg L | 16 August 2011 | 36th VA Senate | 12 Comments

Here’s something I haven’t seen before: a campaign failing to pay federal and state payroll taxes for campaign staff while still spending money to send mailers out to voters.  You’d think that someone hoping to vote on the budget and tax law in Virginia wouldn’t be running a tax deadbeat campaign.  It’s not quite the level of Timothy Geithner, but c’mon, folks.  This is just plain stupid.

Screencap from the SBE website is below the fold.

    I like Tito. I’m sorry to hear this. I’m glad someone is actually reporting news in Prince William County (instead of the usual “happy puppies and smiling babies” we see in the traditional press these days.

    Are you sure this means what you think it means? The paperwork says the bills were incurred on 7/27, and it’s only 8/10. When are they actually due? This could simply be normal accounting — bills payable are debts until you pay them, even if they aren’t required to be paid until some later time.

    These aren’t delinquent taxes–don’t get all excited Greg–Those are quarterly taxes that are not due until 30 days after the end of the fiscal quarter, Sept. 30th, which means they are payable by Oct. 31th. A good financial manager pays taxes when they are due, not before. Short term liability, which is what this is, isn’t even required to be reported to the SBE. Keep your shorts on.

    I guess he’s saving the money for those fliers that imply that Jeff isn’t Hispanic enough. I got one tonight, it was very misleading about Jeff’s business.

    His campaing staff are consultants paid a fee for service, therefore they pay their own taxes, Greg! You are so full of it, it’s actually funny :-)

    So how then does Tito start reporting that he is in arrears on payroll taxes for the campaign if all his staff are independent consultants? Are you telling me that he is lying on his campaign finance reports?

    No, Marta, they are not 1099 consultants. they are W2 employees, whose tax is taken out for them and paid on a quarterly basis. the obligation isn’t back taxes but short term liability. Greg, I read your blog a lot, and normally I enjoy it. But this article is total garbage and I am pretty sure you know it.

    Most employers report payroll using the 941 forms. The 941 forms are due quarterly. If your company’s wages are less than $2500 (total for all employees) during the quarter then you can pay quarterly. Otherwise you have to pay monthly, or semi-monthly. Fines for late payment can be 2% to 10%.

    Well, if we have candidate pledges not to raise taxes, perhaps we can’t be too hard on a guy who didn’t pay taxes? (just kidding - pay your taxes!)

    Is this the type of tax you pay estimated, in which case he may have unpaid taxes but may not be actually delinquent, but rather just owed?

    I don’t like the Tito versus Jeff race because it is so negative. I don’t think Jeff should have gotten 8a treatment (he’s not a minority who was disadvantaged) and there was still the matter of him having been ousted as RPV chair for what seemed to be good reasons. But Tito does need to pay these debts and that doesn’t make him look so good, either. Not my district. I say let the people who live there weigh it all and decide.
