WARNER ROBINS, Ga. — An update to a story we shared with you on Friday:
Documents from the Houston County Superior Court say Warner Robins council candidate Eric Langston owed over $3,000 in back taxes.
Langston said that's not accurate. "It was brought to my attention that I could potentially owe back taxes from 2013 and 2014, and I picked up the phone to call the Georgia Department of Revenue."
They sent back a receipt showing he has a balance of $0 and is in good standing.
"I discovered quickly that I owe a $0 balance on my taxes, so it was a relief," said Langston.
The receipt is from the 2013 to 2018 period, while the years in question were 2013 and 2014.
"I never received anything certified, never received a statement that I have a balance. I think it's just all confusion," said Langston.
Langston said he is working to find out why the Houston County Superior Court still has documents showing he owes money on his property.
Langston also encouraged voters to not be distracted by this and still get out to the polls.
"I just want the voters to make their decision at the box and cast their ballot for who they think would better lead our city into a better future for our children and our grandchildren."
