Janeane Garofalo could face a heavy tax bill after discovering that she has unknowingly been married for the past 20 years. The 48-year-old stand-up comedienne, actress, liberal political activist and writer told the New York Post that she and her then boyfriend of one year, Rob Cohen, had wed in Vegas ´as a joke´ in 1991 - but didn´t imagine it would be formally recognized. Now, however, legal experts warn there could be a serious financial fallout. Top divorce attorney Raoul Felder told Page Six today: ´It could be a train wreck and not so casual. The highest tax rate

Oh, don´t be too hard on yourself, #1. I´ll be disgusted at myself for you. Heck, my wife already is (at me, not you). But you have to agree, it couldn´t happen to a more deserving person. But whatcha bet Da One intervenes and the IRS never goes after her?

I thought she was a lesbian, not that there is anything wrong with that.

Besides, as an 0bama-loving, card-swearing liberal, she´ll jump at the chance to pay her fair share of all the back taxes.

Deliberately making "a joke" out of something as solemn as marriage sounds like "tempting fate" to me, Janeane. One might even say you had this coming.

Hearing that JG just discovered someone divorced her 20 years ago wouldn´t surprise me. I´d gnaw my own arm off to get away from her if I woke up and learned I was married to her.

But hearing someone married her to begin with is blowing my mind. Her aggressive habit of insulting everybody and everything decent makes her superlatively repulsive to me.

Conspicuous and hideous during the Bush years, this nasty piece of work seems to have crawled under a rock over the last four years. Sadly, today´s news should pull her out, making the rounds on tv, spouting bitter and ugly. The upside, she´s that much older, tailor made to repel.

She´s not gay...besides, why would you think any woman would want her? At least with men, you know there is an overwhelming driving force that makes them overlook a lot of flaws. Yeah, she should be proud to pay more taxes. It is not only patriotic but its the humanistic thing to do! Oh it should make you feel so good--in fact, the more you pay, the better!

If you aren´t living together, you can file separately even if you aren´t divorced.

This is tax 101. She doesn´t owe a dime.

The only year she MIGHT have done her taxes wrong was too long ago and she can´t be audited for that year now.

As the article states, the tax rate for a married person filing single is the highest. (As opposed to married persons filing jointly, which most do.)

And she made a bundle of money during that period.

I´m not sure the statute of limitations works when you misstate your filing status. Those pesky little boxes at the top of the return. And then your rate is computed on the basis of that check mark. Not sure at all....

It looks as though she can´t simply walk away from this and say "Ha, ha, my bad." (Nor can he.)

It looks as though they have a responsibility to report their erroneous filings.

Not just a tax bill, but a divorce settlement in a community property state (Kalifornia). That guber she married has a claim on half the wealth she earned/accumulated in the last 19 years.

Some don´t seem to understand that filing as a Single person (which she apparently has been doing) is not the same as Married Filing Single. The tax rate for the latter is the highest. Higher than Single or Married Filing Jointly.

Trenton — Deeply in debt and struggling to stay open, Saint Michael’s Medical Center of Newark put itself up for sale two years ago and accepted a $65 million offer from Prime Healthcare Services of California. Weeks later, however, Prime took a closer look at Saint Michael’s books and concluded they revealed “burdensome and inflexible” labor contracts, HMO rates “significantly below market price,” and two doctors earning more than $500,000 annually.

Schools in Birmingham are illegally segregating pupils, discriminating against non-Muslim students and restricting the GCSE syllabus to “comply with conservative Islamic teaching”, an official report leaked to The Telegraph discloses. Department for Education inspectors said that girls in a school at the centre of the so-called “Trojan Horse” plot were forced to sit at the back of the class, some Christian pupils were left to “teach themselves” and an extremist preacher was invited to speak to children. The report, into three schools in the city, follows weeks of controversy over the alleged plot to “Islamise” secular schools in Birmingham

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years.
