CA-53: City Council President Georgette Gmez failed to report more than $100,000 in income on taxes

SAN DIEGO — San Diego City Council President and Congressional candidate Georgette Gómez reported no salary on her federal tax filing in 2017 despite earning more than $90,000 from her job on the council, according to her personal return.

The discrepancy is one of several errors or omissions noted by The San Diego Union-Tribune during a review of the councilwoman’s tax filings for 2017, 2018 and 2019 compared to other publicly available information.

In 2018, for example, Gómez reported she earned $90,386, before expenses, to the IRS. However, in the financial disclosures she is required to file with Congress as a candidate for federal office, she reported an earned income of $112,630 — $22,244 above what she disclosed on her tax return. Added to the income Gómez failed to report in 2017, over the last three years the councilwoman under-reported more than $100,000 in income to the IRS.

Gómez, who is facing fellow Democrat Sara Jacobs in the November runoff for the 53rd District congressional seat, through a spokeswoman blamed the errors on her tax preparer and pledged to amend at least one of her returns.

“We are about to release an amended return for 2017,” campaign spokeswoman Dayanara Ramirez said in an email Thursday.

1. Under Reporting Income is the Dumbest Mistake or Tax Fraud You Can Commit

The IRS does matches using all the 1099 and W-2s that are submitted. I forgot to include a stock sale one year. They caught it some months later and sent me a bill with the recalculated tax I owed.
