The Republican nominee for the Virginia House previously filed bankruptcy for his business.
The Republican nominee for a seat in Virginia’s House of Delegates owes the Internal Revenue Service $224,000 in unpaid taxes.
The unpaid taxes, according to court documents obtained by the Prince Williams Times, were revealed in liens filed against Steve Pleickhardt, a dentist.
Pleickhardt’s dental practice, American Dental Associates, filed for bankruptcy in 2017 with debts estimated between $100,001 and $500,000. One tax lien, for $71,000, was withdrawn following the bankruptcy.
But tax liens showing $224,000 in unpaid taxes remained outstanding as of September.
Pleickhardt is campaigning for the Virginia House as a fiscal conservative who will cut taxes.
