LEESVILLE, La. (AP) - Officials say Leesville has come to a resolution with the Internal Revenue Service, which had slapped the city with $400,000 in fines and penalties after the agency claimed the city failed to payroll tax forms.

The American Press reported (https://bit.ly/1eOXZNb) in September 2014 that Leesville had received notice of the fines in penalties dating back to 2010, when the city allegedly failed to submit the W-2 forms. The city was facing a fine of $250 per its 183 employees, plus interest incurred for a total of $403,000.

Dowden says the IRS eliminated the penalty and interest. The city now owes about $50,000.

Dowden said during Monday’s council meeting safeguards are now in place to prevent the error from re-occurring.
