County owes IRS $94,000
MADISON COUNTY is paying the IRS $94,000 in unpaid taxes because of an error in employee classification and other personnel issues.
The board of supervisors voted in executive session last week to pay the amount in order to avoid penalties.
District 2 Supervisor Ronny Lott said the $94,000 is not a penalty, but merely what the county owes the federal agency. The IRS audited the county in 2010.
