W.Va. town owes $250,000 in unpaid taxes

Aug. 06, 2013 @ 01:08 PM

ANMOORE, W.Va. (AP) — The town of Anmoore in Harrison County owes an estimated $250,000 in unpaid taxes, and some council members believe an upcoming audit also will reveal credit card misuse.

Media outlets report that council members revealed Monday that they learned in July of the unpaid taxes, insurance and penalties owed to the federal and state governments. They expect to receive a final report by the fall.

Some members said they suspect the audit will reveal credit card misuse among employees. The council approved a motion to discontinue their use.

An audit from 2008 to 2012 showed 22 violations, including the repeated transferring of money between departments without revising the budget.

Council members have requested financial documents from town finance manager and police chief Chris Magee, who is stepping down in September.
