GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) - A Guilford County official says Greensboro’s International Civil Rights Center & Museum is now two years behind on its city and county property taxes.

Guilford County Tax Department Director Ben Chavis tells the News & Record of Greensboro (https://bit.ly/21faKau ) that as of Friday, the museum had not paid its 2015 tax bill of $29,512. The money was due Aug. 31.

Chavis says the museum has paid about $4,300 of its 2014 bill, but still owes more than $27,000. In total, he says the museum owes $57,270.

Chavis says no one from the museum has contacted him to discuss payment arrangements.

Museum officials haven’t responded to the newspaper’s requests for comment.

The museum has struggled financially since its founding in 1994 and has needed about $4.8 million of taxpayer money to stay afloat.
