Let's take a look at White's tax returns

Gov. Larry Hogan expressed concern Thursday about a Sun investigation showing that interim Baltimore County school superintendent Verletta White worked as a consultant for a company that promotes education technology firms without disclosing the payments to the school system or the public, Her predecessor as superintendent, Dallas Dance, also failed to disclose income the same company says it paid him in 2014 and 2015, county records show.

It would be very informative if Baltimore County Public Schools’ Verletta White provided a copy of the portion of her federal tax returns for the years she received payments from outside sources that she failed to disclose on her financial disclosure forms (“Ethics complaint filed against Baltimore County public school superintendent Verletta White,” Nov. 15).

Recall that a tax return is signed under penalty of perjury, declaring that the signer examined the return and the information is true and accurate. If she did not report those payments as “earned” income, then her tax returns were incorrectly prepared and amended returns would be required. If reported as “earned” income, so much for her not particularly comforting excuse for not reporting those payments on her financial disclosure forms.
