Councilman Discusses Tax Return Charge
ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — An Anne Arundel County Councilman who has been charged with failing to file a tax return says he is up-to-date in filing and paying the taxes and interest.
Councilman Daryl Jones said Wednesday in a statement that he looks forward to finalizing the issue, fulfilling his
responsibilities and moving on.
Jones was charged Tuesday in federal court with failing to file a tax return for the 2005 tax year. The councilman says he was caring for his ill mother at the time, and after she died he had an additional responsibility of taking care of his disabled brother.
He says he regrets what happened and has been working to resolve the matter.
