SEASIDE HEIGHTS – Council President Michael Carbone (R – Toms River) has paid off three of his federal tax liens totaling over $115,000, a check of public records on file with the Ocean County Clerk’s Office revealed.
Carbone, who is the brother-in-law of borough police chief Thomas Boyd, holds elected office in Seaside Heights but owns a home in Toms River which he claims to be a “rental property” on his 2017 financial disclosure form filed with state ethics officials. On that same form, Carbone failed to declare which one of his properties was his fulltime residence on his 2017 form. But on his publicly visible personal Facebook page, Carbone’s profile indicates that he is currently a resident of Toms River, and not Seaside Heights where he holds elected office.
The federal liens for unpaid taxes recorded against Council President Carbone’s Toms River residence totaled $115,071.73 and on July 19th, 2017 the federal government recorded documents with the Ocean County Clerk’s Office to cancel the then-outstanding liens on the property that were originally assessed in 2010, 2011 and 2012 in the amounts of $7,999.23, $76,675.04 and $30,397.46.Carbone Lien releases
