Mayor's Campaign Chairman Owes Taxes

DETROIT (AP) -- Records show the chairman of Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan's election campaign hasn't paid taxes on a home for the last two years.

The Detroit News reports (http://bit.ly/1jkoVeO ) Conrad Mallett bought the 7,600-square-foot home from the Rev. Jim Holley for $320,000 and didn't file required paperwork informing the city of the July 2012 sale. That kept it listed as a tax-exempt parsonage.

Taxes are about $10,700 annually. Mallett says he's ready to pay up and notified the city last month when he discovered the error. He says his real estate agent failed to file paperwork and says he thought his mortgage holder was paying taxes through an escrow account.

Mallett, a former Michigan Supreme Court chief justice, says there was "no intent here at all to not appropriately pay all taxes."
