Nobody is immune from the long arm of the California Franchise Tax Board, not even one of the key entertainers at President Obama's inaugural ball. The good news is, singer Stevie Wonder can handle it. The tax lien is for a mere $40.
Even with penalties, the debt is only $138, a piece of cake for Wonder. Chances are, the unpaid amount was an oversight or an error in calculation.
Apart from his music career, Wonder made the news not long ago when he donated $100,000 to Jasmine Faulk, a ten-year-old cancer patient who needs expensive treatment. Now the singer is back in the headlines for his appearance at the inaugural ball, with fellow performers Alicia Keys and Katy Perry.
Wonder was born Stevland Hardaway Judkins in 1950. Among his most memorable songs are "I Just Called to Say I Love You," and "Superstition."
