Dominique Strauss-Kahn Owes $16,000 in U.S. Taxes

NEW YORK - JULY 1:  Former International Monetary Fund leader Dominique Strauss-Kahn (C) and his wife Anne Sinclair (2nd L) leave New York State Supreme Court for a hearing July 1, 2011 in New York City.  The Manhattan district attorney's office agreed to release Strauss-Kahn without bail after the credibility of the alleged sexual assault victim had come into question.

Dominique Strauss-Kahn, the former International Monetary Fund chief, owes more than $16,000 in property taxes, including $1,600 in penalties, on the Washington, D.C., townhouse he owns with his wife, Anne Sinclair, the New York Post reports today. The couple bought the place in 2007, but has been trying to sell it since last October, and has dropped their asking price from $5.2 million to $4.7 million. The property taxes have been overdue since early 2011. DSK was held last week by French police for questions about a prostitution ring and was, of course, accused in New York City of sexual assault last year. Sinclair, who also edits Le Huffington Post, appears to have her hands full and could probably stand to drop the man along with the house.
