LANSING, Mich. (AP) — A report says the federal government once put a $105,000 tax lien on the house of the head of Michigan's housing agency, who resigned after coming under scrutiny for seeking state reimbursement for expensive flights and meals.
The Detroit News reported Monday that the Internal Revenue Service placed a lien on State Housing Development Authority Executive Director Scott Woosley's Rochester home in November 2012, lifting it in January 2013 after he paid his taxes.
The newspaper says Michigan placed a $12,000 tax lien on Woosley's house, which was lifted two weeks before Republican Gov. Rick Snyder named him housing chief in 2012.
Woosley resigned Friday after the Detroit Free Press reported a pattern of expense account use for luxuries based on records that Democrats got from public records.
