Report: Reed late on tax payments, says he paid in full

Report: Reed late on tax payments, says he paid in full

Reports indicate that Congressman Tom Reed has been late paying his property taxes 38 times since 2005.

The Buffalo News reports Monday that tax records from Steuben and Chemung counties, where Reed owns or has owned several properties in addition to his family home, show that he has paid $3,487 in interest and penalties because he has repeatedly been late on his property taxes by a month or two.

Reed, a Republican who serves on the tax-writing Ways and Means Committee, said all the taxes have been paid in full.

He told the newspaper that he has been involved in many investment properties, sometimes on his own and sometimes with partners. He said he has probably made at least 500 property tax payments since 2005.
