Deal and Barnes on Taxes: Errors or Greed?

Did you know? According to the Associated Press: In 2006: Nathan Deal paid 2.95 percent — or $5,575 in federal taxes — on $188,904 in adjusted gross income. In 2007: Deal paid 1 percent — or $2,068 — on $205,433 in income. Based on the Obama tax plan he'll GET a tax break.
Did you know? According to the Atlanta Journal Constitution: In 2008: Roy Barnes claimed as depreciated property, a house and lot that was no longer his. He did the same thing in 2009. The property had been gifted to his children. BUT in 2009: Roy Barnes' tax return erroneously included income he did not earn such that he paid nearly $30,000 MORE than he actually owed in taxes. He has filed an amended return so as to pay the taxes owed. As it stands Roy Barnes will have paid more than 2 million dollars in taxes by the election in November. Nathan Deal, not so much.
Roy Barnes has made public more than 1500 pages of tax records. Nathan Deal, not so much.
