One thing most well-known politicians that have run for president are is very rich and Senator John Kerry is as loaded as they come being that his wife is heir to the Heinz Ketchup fortune. It seems that he might have tried to evade paying taxes on a new yacht, he has agreed to pay them but peep game….
Senator John Kerry said today he will voluntarily cut a check to the state of Massachusetts for some $500,000 in sales tax for a yacht he purchased in Rhode Island earlier this year.
“We’ve reached out to the Massachusetts Department of Revenue and made clear that, whether owed or not, we intend to pay the equivalent taxes as if the boat’s home-port were currently in Massachusetts,” Kerry said in a statement released this afternoon. “That payment is being made promptly.”
Kerry has been dogged by questions in recent days by questions about whether he purposely tried to evade taxes in his home state by listing the $7 million yacht’s home berth as Newport, R.I., when he actually intended to use the boat at his summer home on Nantucket. His yacht purchase was first reported in the Boston Herald.
