Kuster: 'No excuse' for late tax payments

Posted: Updated:

MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire Rep. Ann McLane Kuster says she has no excuse for paying her property taxes late over the course of several years.

Kuster, a Democrat elected in the 2nd Congressional District in November, has made late payments with interest for the last three years. She paid the most recent bills last week after WMUR-TV reported that she was late.

On Monday, she told the television station that there was no "grand explanation" - she just fell behind. She apologized, and said she has taken responsibility for the situation.

That didn't satisfy Republican critics who accuse Kuster of trying to raise her constituents' taxes while failing to pay her own on time. Meanwhile, the chairwoman of the state Republican Party, Jennifer Horn, is resolving tax problems of her own.
