Nuance: California congressman claims primary home is in Maryland for tax break

A senior member of the House’s tax-writing Ways and Means Committee, Stark said he was unaware that he might not be eligible for the tax break. Asked whether it was questionable for him to receive it, he said, “I guess it is.”…

Stark is registered to vote at his wife’s parents’ address in San Lorenzo and has a California driver’s license. He said his 3,600-square-foot Maryland home, on 6.35 acres with an assessed value of about $1.6 million, is the only residence he owns. He rents a town house in Fremont.
