Town cries foul at proposed low return from tax auction

The Associated Press

PLAINFIELD — Officials in Plainfield, where tax militants held federal marshals at bay for nine months in an armed standoff, are questioning the meager amount federal officials plan to allot the community after a tax auction in October.

Plainfield is owed about $233,000 in back taxes and interest, but the federal government's plan calls for it to receive just over $31,000 in taxes and expenses.

The Valley News reports that the order proposed by the U.S. Department of Justice calls for the federal government to keep about $175,000 of the $205,000 bid on the 100-acre compound formerly owned by convicted tax evaders Ed and Elaine Brown.

Plainfield town manager Steve Halleran says the town was taken aback by the meager proposal.

A justice department spokeswoman declined to comment.
