Comments about ‘Utah Jazz: Assistant Sidney Lowe arrested for allegedly
not paying N.C. income tax’
If true, he is stealing from taxpayers of his state. Any thief gets no sympathy
from me and deserves to be in jail.
Oh come on! Half the people in this country don't pay any federal income
tax at all....and it's legal. Why should he have to pay? We
should just get people that have more money than he does to pay for his
share...oh wait we already do that.Hmmmm. Well, lets do it some
more!C'mon its the "new" American way.On a
slightly more serious note, how could he have not known this was coming and done
something about it?If nothing else it shows supremely poor judgement
on his part so it begs the question, why is he in the position he is in?
He wasn't stealing from taxpayers of his state. He just didn't want
to share his share of his tax money with other tax payers.
This is awesome! Straight out of Happy Gilmore. Maybe he has a grandson who
turns to golf to help him pay his taxes.
Heard over allstar weekend that the Mailman would still like to help us with
coaching the bigs. Said he would even do it for free.
In related news: When I was at BYU one of my landlords owned a company that
handled the payroll for the Utah Jazz. When they played a game in California,
that state wanted to tax the money they earned while in California. Other states
did the same. Just imagine the nightmare that would cause you if you had to
travel on business and pay income tax in every state you visited.Professional athletes can't hid the fact that they travel on business.
Few if any others are even noticed.If Mr. Lowe willfully violated
the law they I have little sympathy for him. I have all the sympathy in
the world for athletes that get taxed is more than a dozen states and have to
pay double taxes for the days they are on the road.
I'm guessing it was the Mailman who tipped them off in hopes of creating a
People make honest mistakes. Not even bothering to file is not one of them. No
sympathy from me.
@Ute in NVFunny.Too bad, all to often we hear about
people who seem to make a lot more money than the majority of us refusing to pay
Just the latest blunder from the worst-run franchise in the NBA.
@Chris B. You sound like such a loving person. You probably have no clue what
has been going on in his life. A true Utah fan would be sympathetic!
How amusing it is when people who lie about their income on tax forms have the
audacity to cast stones at others that fail to file those same forms. Pots
calling kettles black. Americans......gotta love em.
Athletes aren't double-taxed. They're basically taxed in different
states in proportion to where they play (or sit on the bench). The W-2 they get
has a line for each state's tax liability and the amount withheld. They
then have to file with their home state and the states involved. It's just
like if you live in one state and work in another, only it's a dozen or two
other states you worked in.
@Sir Robin worst-run franchise in the NBA. Quite a statement coming from
California. Enlighten us please.
It is amazing that North Carolina, one of President Obama's strong
supporters has charged as a man that may have not paid his taxes, similar to Tim
Geithner who owed $30,000 in taxes when he was nominated as the Secretary of the
Treasury. Maybe the President, as an attorney, can represent this man in the
court of public media and then Mr. Lowe could be our next Secretary of the
Treasury after Mr. Lew who had money in the same building as Mr. Romney in the
Cayman Islands. Strange bedfellows for the President and now for this
accusation for Mr. Lowe.
Here is a list of people and corporations who pay no income taxes and have never
gotten in trouble. Bank of America CEO Brian Moynihan, JP Morgan
Chase CEO James Dimon,Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein.Wells
Fargo,General Electic,PG&E Corp, Verizon Communications, American Electric
Power,Pepco Holdings, Computer Sciences, ,
There is also FedEx, Wiconsin Energy, DuPont, Baxter Ineternational,CMS Energy,
DTE energy, Corning, Honeywell International, Navistar International, Ryder
System, Intergys energy group, and American electric power.
Brave Sir RobinTell me again how the lakers are doing this year? Oh
yes, they will not make the playoffs and Dwight Howard is about to leave in free
agency. Only a dysfunctional franchise can't win with Kobe, Nash, Gasol and
Howard. If they were on any other team they would be in first place.
