Football great Bernie Kosar pays tax lien
Bernie Kosar, the former National Football League quarterback, says he has paid the $228,806.21 lien the IRS placed on him for income taxed owed for 2006, according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer.
The Miami Herald had reported Kosar was behind on property tax for 2007, failing to pay $52,724.95 as of March 31, owing $59,881.49 with penalties, interest, and other charges.
As a player for the Browns, Kosar helped guide the team to three AFC Championship games. He also played with the Cowboys, and the Dolphins. But Kosar is also known for his prowess off the field as a developer, restaurant owner, and president of an Arena Football team.
He told the Miami Herald the bills had fallen through the cracks, he had just learned of them, and he would make good on them. His divorce from wife Babette was final in December and some of the notices were mailed to his old address.
Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
