Online debate rages over Palin's tax returns

Palin's tax returns spark online debate over whether she has underpaid tax

US tax blogs have pored over Sarah Palin’s tax returns and decided: they’re
wrong.

The tax returns of vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin have sparked a
frenzy of debate among tax academics, lawyers and
bloggers
over whether she and her husband still owe tax due to alleged errors.

Jack
Bogdanski
of Lewis & Clark and Bryan Camp of Texas Tech raised
issues over her returns.

‘The children’s travel payments are clearly taxable income,’ said Bogdanski
on his blog.

The debate was sparked by tax lawyer
Roger
M Olsen
backing aspects of her tax return.
