Description

Reporters obtained the database of all the delinquent property tax cases in Fayette County since 1974. From that list of thousands of delinquent tax cases reporters found the dozen or so worst offenders in the 1990's. We discovered that the #1 delinquent property tax case involved a prominent, local developer who owed more than $100,000 and the county attorney was threatening to sell some of his property.
