GASTONIA, N.C. — A candidate for the North Carolina House of Representatives says he is working to resolve an $80,000 tax issue involving his business.
The Gaston Gazette reported ( http://bit.ly/IqbHKh) that Gastonia Republican Dana Bumgardner said he doesn’t think the tax problems for his company should affect voters in next month’s primary.
Bumgardner says the six-year-old claim involves his business and he does not personally owe the IRS anything. He says his attorney is working to resolve the dispute.
Bumgardner is one of several candidates for the seat now held by Rep. Bill Current.
Bumgardner is one of the owners of LPM Inc., a label manufacturing company in the Gaston County town of Dallas.
The IRS filed a lien against the company in 2006.
