Gov. Bevin Late On $11,000 Tax Payment

FRANKFORT, Ky. -- The tax man is looking to collect from Governor Matt Bevin.

The Jefferson County Sheriff's Office website shows Gov. Matt Bevin owes $11,080 on his Barberry Lane home in Louisville. 

That includes a 10 percent penalty because it wasn't paid by Jan. 31. The original tax bill was due Dec. 31. It increased by 5 percent in January and 10 percent on Feb. 1. 

Jefferson County Sheriff's Office Chief Financial Officer Teri Geraghty noted the website's records are one day behind. 

Democrats criticized Bevin for late tax payments during his campaign. At the time, Bevin noted he had paid in full, even if he paid late.

Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer was also late on his taxes. In a statement, Fischer spokesman Chris Poynter said "This was an oversight and the mayor paid the bill today after it was brought to his attention."
