THREE FORKS, Mont. (AP) - The Three Forks District School Board has voted to pay about $37,000 in fines to the Internal Revenue Service to settle unpaid taxes and fees.

The total is about $12,000 less than originally anticipated.

An IRS audit found errors in the district’s finances from 2013 and said the school owed nearly $50,000 in taxes and fees.

Issues with health insurance reimbursement, how some employees’ paychecks were issued and how independent contractors were paid were all red-flagged by the IRS.

The Bozeman Daily Chronicle reports (https://bit.ly/1mPdeyT ) that district officials are talking with the liability insurance company to see whether any of the district’s costs can be covered through an insurance claim.
