Stimulus Money Recipients owe Billions in Taxes: government

(Reuters) - Contractors and businesses that received money through the 2009 federal economic stimulus plan owe billions in unpaid taxes to the government, a federal auditor said on Tuesday.

The Government Accountability Office said that as of September 30, 2010, the total bill for unpaid taxes, including interest and penalties, was $330 billion.

By law the federal government can make grants to entities that owe taxes, so some of the outstanding bills were racked up before the stimulus plan was passed.
