Trump’s fed pick owes unpaid taxes

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump’s pick to serve on the Federal Reserve’s Board of Governors had a lien of more than $75,000 filed against him in January 2018 for unpaid taxes.

The president said last week he intends to nominate Stephen Moore to fill a vacancy on the Fed’s seven-member board.

Moore is a conservative economic analyst and frequent Federal Reserve critic. He is a well-known and often polarizing figure in Washington political circles. He served as a Trump campaign adviser in 2016.

Court records in Montgomery County, Maryland, show a $75,328 lien against Moore was entered in favor of the United States government for unpaid taxes, and for penalties and interest that may accrue from 2014.

The White House declined to comment. Moore did not immediately return a request for comment.
