Politico: Puckett owes nearly $2K in back taxes

July 25, 2008

from Politico:

• Indiana Republican Luke Puckett, who is running to unseat freshman Democratic Rep. Joe Donnelly, still owes $1,919.84 in 2006 property taxes, according to documents filed with the Elkhart County, Ind., treasurer. His campaign failed to respond to multiple requests for comment. Donnelly himself took a hit in 2006, during his own first race for the House. According to local tax records and newspaper accounts, Republicans unearthed a collection of tax records that showed he had paid a combined $2,349.50 in late-payment penalties on two properties he owns in Indiana’s LaPorte and St. Joseph counties. As of January 2006, Donnelly owed LaPorte County $9,068.86 in late property taxes and an additional $906.88 in penalties, according to documents there. Those revelations were not enough to keep him from beating the incumbent, Republican Chris Chocola.
