The information provided by the Franken campaign indicates that from 2003 to 2006 he should have paid $53,404 in personal income taxes to 17 states where he earned income but wasn't a resident. Adding penalties, he has paid about $70,000 to those states.

During the same period, the information indicates, he overpaid his taxes in the two states where he lived -- New York and Minnesota -- by $49,253. He said that once the situation with the 17 states is resolved, he'll be able to apply for a credit for his overpaid taxes.
