GoFundMe page set up to help pay Gov. Matt Bevin’s delinquent tax bill
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) — After WDRB reported that Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin has not yet paid taxes on his Louisville home for 2016, someone decided it would be a good idea to set up a GoFundMe page to help.
The $9,157.05 bill was due on Dec. 31 and remained unpaid as of Wednesday. Now, with late fees and penalties, the Bevins owe $11,080.03. The GoFundMe page was set up a few hours after the news broke:
Gov. Bevin has talked about poor people having skin in the game. They should pay something. Even if it’s a little. It will help them feel less poor.
The Governor is in a jam. He hasn’t paid his property taxes and they now total S11,080.03.
If we come together . . .we can pay his tax bill for him because he’s too busy to be bothered.
This would mean a lot to all Kentuckians. Thank you.
As of Thursday morning, it had raised $45 of its $11,100 goal.
One woman who contributed said she was compelled to donate because “I heard he lost everything in the Bowling Green Massacre.”
Another woman commented: “I’m sending you some bootstraps. Feel free to use them to pull yourself up.”
Another person donated $5 under the name of Andy Beshear.
