Chief IRS prevaricator John Koskinen lives on Redwood Terrace NW in the upper middle class Colonial Village neighborhood, in the North Portal Estates section favored by high level fat ‘crats, in a house Zillow estimates to be worth $1.8 million. Though he seems to have persuaded the local DC tax authorities to assess him at only $1.3 million.
Back in December last year he hosted an event at his home for Mayor Gray, DC’s incumbent Mayor who lost in the Democratic primary because of an ongoing investigation that he took $700,000 in illegal contributions from a single real estate developer.
Koskinen previously worked in the DC government and as a CEO at Freddie Mac, the government sponsored enterprise implicated in the housing crisis. His wife of 50 years, Patricia Salz Koskinen, is a retired professor of education who taught at and earned her PhD from the University of Maryland.
