Delta community collects $100K to pay IRS tax lien

METCALFE β€” The town of Metcalfe has collected $100,000 from a bonding company and will use the money to pay on a tax lien imposed by the Internal Revenue Service.

The town sued former mayor Shirley Allen, former town clerk Brenda Gibbs and several former and current aldermen who served between 1999-2009 to recoup money through their bonding agent β€” the Ohio Casualty Company.

Town attorney Bennie L. Richard tells the Delta Democrat Times the money came in last week.

Richard says the money will pay part of the tax lien but not all of it.

The IRS said the town didn’t pay taxes on town employees for 10 years from 1999-2009. The figure has continued to grow because of interest and penalties.
