Detroit’s New Emergency Manager Has Tax Liens

imagesCA7SQGSLGov. Snyder’s handpicked financial wizard for Detroit’s Emergency Manager, Kevyn Orr, ain’t so wizard-y after all. Seems he has a checkered history of paying his taxes, and of having liens placed on his million dollar Chevy Chase, Maryland McMansion.

The Detroit News reports that Maryland records show:

 “A lien for $7,022 in unemployment taxes for the 2008 tax year was entered on July 17, 2009, and satisfied on Aug. 20, 2010. Another for $9,409 in income taxes for the 2008 tax year against Orr and his wife, Dr. Donna Neale, was entered on Aug. 11, 2010, and satisfied on Oct. 3, 2011.

Two other liens over unemployment taxes — $6,985 for the 2010 tax year and $9,201 for the 2010-11 tax years — are outstanding, said Frost, who reviewed the records.”

Snyder spokesperson, Sara Wurfel, said it didn’t come up in the vetting process. Did they not do the obvious — pull a credit report on a candidate for the appointment?

Seems not.

Maybe his $275,000 salary will help him with his personal debt service problems.
