Another Big Federal Tax Lien Filed Against Gilmore Law Firm

TOMS RIVER – Another lien in the amount of $2870556.41 was recorded against the Gilmore & Monahan firm in the Ocean County Clerk’s Office last week, public records showed.

With a federal tax investigation hanging over his head, the influential Ocean County GOP chairman’s law firm had the lien recorded on March 16th, 2017, according to the document.

The federal investigation is ongoing and has expanded to include Gilmore’s role with the Ocean County Board of Elections as of late, according to sources familiar with the investigation. Grand jury proceedings remain ongoing.

The $2870556.41 lien covers federal corporate income taxes for the tax period that ended December 31st, 2015, and was assessed in December before being filed with the county clerk’s office.

    That, is almost $4,000,000.00 in federal tax liens filed against Gilmore and Gilmore & Monahan. How long before he cracks? The pressure must be overwhelming.

    • Toni

      I agree, still even at that amount the issue is not only about back taxes. Many corporations own far more then that and work a plan out. This is about other deeds.

      • llewellynh

        But this isn’t just any old corporation. GG is the Town Counsel for 8 communities in Ocean County. To that he is on several governmental boards. He also processed some of the FEMA money that came in. So a huge amount of his income comes from the government work he gets.

        To not transfer withholding taxes on his payroll to the government is pretty serious business and that ought to be considered by the 8 towns that are ignoring all of this and keep him on retainer.

        Not a very good example for the rest of us and NJ law orders local communities to hire lawyers who reside in their particular towns. Mr. Gilmore lives in Toms River so for all of the 8 communities supporting him the towns had to apply for a waiver and maybe that law needs attention. One waiver per lawyer ought to be the maximum and only if there isn’t a qualified local attorney to take the job.

    My opinion, AshBritt will be George’s downfall. While we suffered, he made millions, illegally, on the public dime.

    • Gary

      It is not going that he owes back taxes. It will be how he made the money or deals that were made., that are not legal possibly. He has tentacles everywhere.

    Doesn’t matter. Trump will pardon him anyway.

    Why haven’t the Gilmore firm payments from clients, including Little Egg Harbor been seized? Do you think Gormley and Kehm are cutting him checks in secret?


    Gilmore isn’t crooked because if he was he would be able to pay his bills

    Talked with someone today about Gilmore’s tax liens. They are not from this area and don’t know George Gilmore. But, based on what I told him, he said there is no doubt, in his mind, Gilmore is in serious trouble and going to jail.

    • Interesting. Thanks for sharing.

    • guest

      I still concur with past posters, this is more then tax liens. Many, many people have tax liens. You do not go to jail for tax liens, you do go to jail if it was connected to criminal wrongdoings, as may be the case here. Remember this stems from a small loan to a contactor. Much more then meets the eye.

      • TRWatch

        That is what he said. The Feds. are filing these tax liens as part of “a larger criminal investigation. And, it is only a matter of time before indictments are handed down.”

  • Mustang Sally

    I really want him and Tommy to go down hard and for a very long time. They have had a stranglehold for way too long.
