Milton School Board candidate Brent Miller has partially paid off delinquent taxes for a property he owns, Rock County Treasurer Michelle Roettger said Monday.
Miller made a payment last week that fully cleared his 2016 balance and reduced what he owes in 2017 for a home located at 3402 E. Thomas St., Milton. The payment is not yet reflected in the county tax database because it is still processing, Roettger said.
Last week, The Gazette reported Miller was roughly $3,700 behind in property tax payments. He has rented the property to his parents as a summer home for more than a decade, he said.
He told The Gazette he was unaware he owed taxes on the property and thanked a reporter for informing him.
Miller’s home, located across the road at 3311 E. Thomas St., was up to date on all tax payments, according to the database.
Roettger declined to say the specific amount Miller paid off because the information is not posted yet on the public database. She confirmed Miller had fully paid off the property’s 2016 taxes and part of the 2017 bill.
Even when the payment is entered into the county system, the property will still have delinquent taxes for 2017 because Miller missed the first installment deadline, and the delinquency status won’t go away until he pays the remaining balance, Roettger said.
Miller is one of eight candidates for Milton School Board. Today’s primary election will eliminate two.
