Oh, those tax form errors:

The Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation and an associated charity refiled tax returns for six years with the U.S. Internal Revenue Service to amend their reporting of donations from foreign governments and other errors, the charities said on Monday.

The foundation refiled its Form 990 tax returns for 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013, while the Clinton Health Access Initiative refiled its returns for 2012 and 2013 after Reuters discovered errors in the forms earlier this year.

The charities said they were not legally required to refile the forms and were only doing so in the interest of transparency following what the foundation’s president, Donna Shalala, called an “exhaustive review.”

If they’re interested in transparency, why not reveal their donor list?

This next part may prove of interest down the road:

The amended forms also break out the charities’ income derived from the Clintons’ speeches to corporations, among other amendments.

Given the sheer size of the Clintons’ speech fees and how little actual charitable work their Foundation engages in, it’s obvious that the Foundation has been the family’s government-sanctioned income-tax dodge. But maybe now we’ll see just how big of a dodge.
