NBC Wash: Marion Barry fails to pay his taxes...again


This news comes after Barry pleaded guilty in 2005 to two misdemeanor tax charges and admitted to not filing his taxes from 1999 to 2004. So he didn't pay most of the taxes he owed on more than $500,000 in income. Big whoop, right? If the nation's treasury secretary can't figure out this whole taxes thing, who can?

Barry, who now makes more than $92,000 per year as a council member, had no comment for the Post and didn't let on to when he might file his taxes.
