One Final "Screw You" from Pechanga to Disenrollees.
Many of the Hunter family are reporting that they are receiving notices for non-payment of taxes from the IRS for tax year 2006. For those who think that tribal members don't pay taxes, the total comes to about $20,000 each, which would have been for the amount paid to them of over $72,000 for the 1st qtr. per capita and bonus. The yearly per capita was $270,000 now, with less people it's about $360,000 and more disenrollments are possible. The running total so far is: $380,000 (will be updated) Is this a final "screw you" to the Hunter family from Mark Macarro and Andrew Masiel, the top contenders for Tribal Chairman in the upcoming election? Did they give direction to not send in the required tax payments to the IRS? Was this a conspiracy to CHEAT the US Government of their rightful collections? Or, is it possibly just shoddy accounting and paperwork? Will that be their excuse? After the indictments come down, California and Temecula will see what they are dealing with in tribal politics. Now, do you think there is a chance the self-auditing will not work and won't benefit the state of California? Do you think their will be another slot malfunction when a jackpot is hit? Why take the chance? Avoid Pechanga.
