GOP, Republican-Fail, Rick Snyder — September 30, 2010 at 7:03 pm

Tsk, tsk. Rick Snyder dinged for not paying business taxes



Two of gubernatorial candidate Rick Snyder’s companies have been hit with liens for unpaid state taxes, one as recently as two months ago.

Records show the state of California filed a $1,265 tax lien against Avalon Ventures LLC of Ann Arbor on Aug. 2, the day before Snyder won the Republican primary. The company’s 2010 annual report lists Snyder, a millionaire Ann Arbor businessman, as the managing member.

Records also show the state of Michigan in 2001 filed a lien against Avalon Investments Inc. for failure to pay more than $13,000 in employee withholding tax. Annual reports filed in Michigan in 2010 and 2001 list Snyder as the president of Avalon Investments.

I thought this guy was a shrewd businessman? Oh, right. He is a shrewd businessman. He just happens to hire accountants that don’t do their job properly. And he’s a nerd, too! Not just a nerd but a tough nerd! Nothing to see here, folks, move along. (Did I happen to mention he’s a shrewd businessman?) (Also, too, a “nice guy”?)


I’m just sayin’…
