Detroit NAACP Office Faces Foreclosure Over Unpaid Taxes
Bummer. The Detroit NAACP offices face foreclosure over unpaid taxes.
The far left group neglected to pay over $47,451 in taxes to Wayne County and may have to close their doors soon.
The Detroit NAACP faces office foreclosure over $47,451 in unpaid taxes to Wayne County.
The Detroit News reports Saturday that the branch is seeking a payment plan for the back 2008 taxes or it could lose its headquarters in the city.
Another $38,969 in taxes is owed for 2009. The newspaper reports that an appeal over the issue is before a state tax tribunal.
Executive Director Hester Wheeler said the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People’s newer branch office should be tax-exempt like the former building it once occupied. It moved into the new office in 2007.
Branch President the Rev. Wendell Anthony said last month that Detroit owed $46,000 in dues to the national NAACP.
