Gov. Justice Refuses To Pay Taxes
$1.5 Million In New Liens In Kanawha Co. Since October
CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- You just can't trust Jim Justice. That's clear again after another report today of more than $1.5 million in new tax liens against his companies in Kanawha County.
The Charleston Gazette-Mail today reports four new liens for unpaid taxes in 2016 and 2017 of nearly a million dollars, and another $600,000+ in new ones entered just before last fall's General Election.
That's more than $1.5 million owed, just in Kanawha County, that's been added to his companies' tabs since national media seized on the story last October.
"Jim Justice continues to avoid his taxes while trying to raise ours," said West Virginia Republican Party Chairman Conrad Lucas. "One or two liens can happen, even to well-run and honest businesses. But the preponderance of hundreds of liens and judgments, for millions of dollars against Justice and his companies is unlikely any kind of accident."
Justice still owns TAMS Management, the company cited again today for unpaid taxes and mine reclamation costs in Kanawha County. He has not yet put his coal and agricultural companies into a blind trust.
This follows yesterday's new report of another Justice company losing a court appeal for $1.23 million for failing to pay for mining equipment and large fines for Contempt of Federal Court.
"Jim Justice embarrasses our state every single day," said Lucas.
Please call Governor Justice at 304-558-2000 and ask why he refuses to pay taxes to support West Virginia schools and counties.
