If this was a case of actual hard times for the Murray family I'd agree. If Kenneth Murray had lost his job at the Manhattan law firm which he happens to be a partner in or their financial problems had been the result of some unforeseen tragedy or event then I would whole-heartedly agree; this would be a private matter and off limits. But it's not.
The IRS doesn't just place liens on peoples properties for nothing. Here the agency has placed a tax lien on the Murray's property of $78,000 for unpaid Federal income taxes!
A Federal tax lien is put in place when an individual does not report income. Assuming that the Murray's tax bracket falls at 33% that would mean that they did not report ~ $236,000 of income.
That's a lot of money and this shouldn't be taken lightly.
As I stated before, Stephanie Murray is up for re-election next year. If she can't handle her own finances, how on earth can we trust her with ours?
