IRS files lien against Jefferson Parish councilman

GRETNA, La. (AP) - The Internal Revenue Service has filed a $90,000 lien on property owned by Jefferson Parish Councilman Chris Roberts to cover taxes he and his wife owe for 2008 and 2009.

Nola.com/The Times-Picayune reports (http://bit.ly/1m0uOwx ) Roberts said Wednesday that he is appealing the lien. He says he and his wife, Katherine, incurred 2006 business losses that the IRS should deduct from the outstanding balances of 2008 and 2009.

The IRS says the Roberts owe $24,286.80 on their 2008 taxes and $66,588.78 for 2009.

Roberts says the losses stem from a former business partner who "walked out on the business," filed bankruptcy and stuck the couple with the liabilities.

He says he expects a resolution with the IRS before the end of the year.
