Reed’s tax payment history under fire again

Congressman Tom Reed’s tax payments are getting attention once again.

A Rochester TV station reported this week that Reed used campaign money to pay his property taxes in Steuben County in April of 2012.

The report also states that Reed corrected the illegal move, and paid back the money to his campaign account within a month of the discovery.

Reed told WHAM that it was an unfortunate clerical error that he takes full responsibility for.

The Buffalo News reported earlier this month that Reed failed to pay property taxes on time on nearly 40 occasions since 2005 for multiple properties.

Reed responded by saying he’s paid all his obligations, and said the report was an attempt at political character assassination.
