A tax lien placed against the property of Georgetown Mayor Jack Scoville will be taken care of “as soon as possible,” he said today.
A notice from the S.C. Dept. of Revenue shows the lien is in the amount of $6,165 for unpaid individual income taxes but Scoville owes more than $6,435 because of a $185 penalty and $86 in interest.
Scoville, a lawyer, said today one reason the taxes have not been paid is because he is waiting to be paid by a a client. .
“ I have been working on a large personal injury settlement that will enable me to pay this off in full but the insurance company recently changed adjusters on the case so that has been delayed,” he said.
Read Wednesday's Georgetown Times for more of Scoville's response, including his answer when asked if this has anything to do with the push for a pay increase for the mayor and members of city council.
