Gilmore Law Firm Hit With More Federal Tax Liens

TOMS RIVER – Tax problems continue to mount for Ocean  County Republican Chairman George Gilmore, amid a federal investigation into the tax situation of the chairman. In addition to the nearly $1 million of liens affecting Gilmore’s  personal residences, new 6-figure liens against the law firm of Gilmore & Monahan have been filed in October and July, public records showed.

According to documents on file with the Ocean County Clerk’s Office, additional federal tax liens against the Gilmore & Monahan law firm were recorded in the months of July and October of this year.

On July 20th, 2016 the county clerk’s office recorded a lien in the amount of $114,427.07 for the tax period that ended on December 31st, 2015.

On October 25th, 2016 that office recorded an additional lien in the amount of $149,333.45 against the influential county Republican chairman’s law firm for quarterly federal taxes for the tax period that ended on June 30th, 2016.

In a true display of “Jersey Justice” (read some of Atlantic County Superior Court Judge Nelson Johnson’s books if you don’t know what that phrase means), Gilmore’s son Michael was confirmed as a state tax court judge earlier this week.

    Chump change, and the norm, for the firm. However, the, nearly, one million in personal tax liens against Gilmore is not normal, and may signal the end of G.G. If I were some of the local guys, I wouldn’t discuss business within recording distance of “The Chairman.”

      Agree that the personal amount is very large. However, I bet that is not what the investigation is about . Owing back taxes is not illegal, There is more then we are being let on to believe.

        I don’t care what the back story is but do resent living in one of the several that hire this man and pay him handsomely to represent our towns. To that he gets more income from being on a handful of civic Boards.

        Doesn’t exactly inspire people to follow the law and comply with the rules the rest of us have to.

        The Democrats amaze me for just sitting back and watching this go on and on and not offering up interesting candidates so that we might have a shot at a two party system that encourages real checks and balances.

    Gavin what is the status of the Republicon Road to Nowhere and what is the total spent including interest payments
    I’m guessing the Republicons did not send you any Christmas Cards this year

    • Gavin Rozzi says:

      I am not sure at the moment. Last I heard, it was tangled up with the Appellate Division in litigation. I’ll look into it. No Christmas cards, but I will be stopping by the Lacey reorg meeting this afternoon.
