Michigan says CIA owes state over $20,000 in taxes


The Michigan Treasury Department says the CIA has failed to pay more than $20,000 owed in state income taxes.


The Lansing State Journal reports the department has filed tax liens against the CIA for state income taxes withheld from employees' paychecks. A lien gives Michigan a legal claim to a debtor's property until the alleged debt is paid.


A CIA spokesman tells the State Journal the agency is unlikely to have debt that would create a liability in Michigan. He says the claims might have originated with an anti-government group.


The Ingham County Recorder of Deeds tells the State Journal the liens are legitimate and the person who recorded them is a state Treasury employee. Treasury officials can't speak publicly about individual tax cases under Michigan law.
