The Internal Revenue Service has reportedly placed a lien on the home of a Black Hawk County supervisor and vice chair of the Iowa Republican Party. Officials say Leon Mosley owes more than 46-thousand dollars to the federal government.
Mosley says the lien’s a mistake that’s a result of an issue with his charitable contributions to organize neighborhoods and to fight drug dealers around the state. Mosley says his attorney, W. Louis Beecher of Waterloo, is working to resolve the issue with the I-R-S. The lien was filed in late April in the Black Hawk County Courthouse, and include assessments for tax years 1995 through 1999 and for 2003.
The assessments for those years range from between nearly 17-hundred dollars to more than 12-thousand dollars. Mosley has said he created his Neighborhood Action Team, which is a non-profit entity, and has donated his county supervisor’s salary toward that. Mosley is running for re-election this fall. He was the top vote getter in the Republican primary election last fall.
