Schwarzenegger Owes $80K in Taxes Governator didn't pay his taxes in 2004, 2005 By Kevin Spak, Newser Staff Posted Nov 27, 2009 7:31 AM CST 20 comments Comments California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, seen, during the Saban Forum in Jerusalem, Sunday, Nov. 15, 2009. (AP Photo/Debbie Hill, Pool) (Newser) – We’ve found the Governator’s weakness: paying taxes. Arnold Schwarzenegger owes Uncle Sam $79,064 in back taxes for 2004 and 2005, according to documents filed in LA County Superior Court. Those would be the first two full years of Schwarzenegger’s rule over California. TMZ checked with the LA County Recorder’s Office, and confirmed that the lien is still active. Maybe he hasn't got the money; lord knows it's not easy balancing a budget.
