IRS refunds county $96,000
When others told her she was wasting her time, Janice Ramey appealed to the Internal Revenue Service anyway.

As a result, a $90,000 mistake has been fixed.

"I am so relieved," said Ramey, the current Jennings County recorder who was then auditor. "I can't apologize enough to the taxpayers. But I don't apologize to the county council and commissioners. They didn't let me know what was going on (until they announced it)."

The IRS refunded the $90,000 in penalties, along with $6,000 in interest, to Jennings County earlier this month. The penalties were the result of the Jennings County Auditor's office for not paying $452,388.94 in payroll taxes owed to the IRS in 2014. The county paid those taxes in early 2015, shortly after Kay Vance took office as county auditor and discovered the oversight. Then last September, the auditor's office paid the $90,000 from the county's general fund to the IRS in order to avoid additional penalties, according to county officials.
