Scottsbluff Legislative Candidate Working to Pay Off Over $30,000 to IRS


A Scottsbluff legislative candidate has been working with the IRS to eliminate a $30,500 tax lien.

Scottsbluff lawyer Mike Meister said Monday that he'd gotten into a ``cash flow crunch'' and couldn't pay the accumulated federal withholding for his employees. He added that his employees are ``not in any risk.''

The legislative hopeful said he's working with the IRS to pay off his debt that he expects to be caught up by the end of the month.

Meister is running against Valley Bank President John Stinner Sr. for the legislative seat in Nebraska's 48th District.
