Schwarzenegger had always maintained that he had paid Uncle Sam and that the apparent overdue taxes -- $39,047.20 from 2004 and $40,016.80 from 2005 -- were the result of "a minor paperwork tracking discrepancy."
It seems that the explanation was indeed the true truth, not True Lies. (Sorry. I know it's a stretch, but I couldn't resist.)
A Schwarzenegger spokesman said the problem was a computer glitch on the governator's payroll tax filings for the two years in question.
But the Golden State's top official didn't get off completely. Schwarzenegger was charged $20.50 for administrative fees.
