    WASHINGTON -- Ron Kirk, nominated as U.S. Trade Representative in the Obama administration, owes an estimated $10,000 in back taxes from earlier in the decade and has agreed to make his payments, the Senate Finance Committee said Monday.

    The committee said the taxes arise from Kirk's handling of speaking fees that he donated to his alma mater, and for his deduction of the full cost of season tickets to the Dallas Mavericks professional basketball team.

    The disclosure made the former Dallas mayor the latest in a string of top-level Obama administration appointees found to have underpaid their taxes, following Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner and Tom Daschle, who withdrew as candidate for Health and Human Services secretary. Nancy Killefer, Obama's pick for chief performance officer, also bowed out amid tax problems.

    I'm telling you, it's part of Obama's deficit reduction plan ... Nominate people who owe back taxes and they will pay up.

    The only problem is that it ruins my chance for an appointment.

    Half the American economy is under the table. Only politicians are stupid enough to get caught.

    I don't believe that. The majority of Americans probably work for someone else and automatically have taxes deducted from their checks.

    When someone makes a statement like this - it causes me to wonder - is this some sort of a confession on your part?

    Feeling the need to amend some tax returns?

    Got a little income that you forgot to declare?

    The "everybody else is doing it" excuse probably didn't work on your parents - why would you think that it would work for tax evaders?

    He's got a thing for tax cheats doesn't he. Once again he gives approval for income tax fraud.
