IRS places $1M lien on small Delta town
Published: November 7,2011
METCALFE — The Internal Revenue Service has placed a lien on the Town of Metcalfe for more than $1 million.
Town attorney Bennie L. Richard tells the Delta Democrat Times the town is talking to IRS about remedies.
Richard says the town has a delinquent tax liability because it didn’t pay taxes on town employees for 10 years. Richard says the figure continues to grow because of interest and penalties.
The town is suing former mayor Shirley Allen, former town clerk Brenda Gibbs and several former and current aldermen who served in whole, or part, between 1999-2009 in an effort to recoup money through their bonding agent, the Ohio Casualty Company.
If successful, Richard says the money would be used to pay off the IRS debt.
