          Statement by the White House Press Secretary
                        on Admiral Inman

From 1986 to the present, Admiral Bob Inman and his wife employed a part-time housekeeper (on a 1-3 times a week basis) for whom they did not withhold social security and related taxes.

At the outset of his discussions with the White House, Admiral Inman fully disclosed this situation and made clear his intent to come into compliance with administration policy on this issue.

Today Admiral Inman has filed the requisite forms with the Internal Revenue Service and has made payment on approximately $6,000 in taxes owed. Any interest and penalties will be calculated and assessed directly by the Internal Revenue Service at a later date.
