Revenue Department puts lien on Delta civic center
Published: August 9,2012
GREENWOOD — The Mississippi Department of Revenue has put a $14,182 lien on a Leflore County Civic Center bank account based on allegations the center didn’t pay sales taxes.
The Greenwood Commonwealth reports the Leflore County Board of Supervisors, which owns the Civic Center, unanimously voted to appeal the lien.
The Civic Center’s director says that some of what the state claims it owes came from events sponsored by tax-exempt organizations. In other circumstances, the center says promoters left without paying their tax bills.
The Department of Revenue will hear the appeal and decide if it merits going to an independent review board.
The state discovered the missing sales taxes during an audit of the center’s books from April 2008 to April 2011.
