The largest overdue taxpayer in the Northeast Kingdom towns of Jay and Burke has written checks to pay down those debts.
Michael Goldberg, the court-appointed receiver overseeing ski resorts along with other properties associated with a massive EB-5 investor fraud case, has been making payments on late taxes, say municipal officials in both towns.
Priscilla Aldrich, Burke’s town clerk and treasurer, said Friday she recently received a check for $362,118 from Goldberg for taxes on Burke Mountain ski resort and related properties.
“It’s kind of a relief,” Aldrich said of receiving the check. “We’re trying to work together, and I wish him the very best.”
In Jay, Goldberg and the town agreed to a schedule late last year to pay the more than $2 million in overdue taxes.
