Wake Commissioner Candidate Can’t Pay Taxes On Time? Update: Ticket for Revoked License?

The Democrat’s “More with Four” candidates keep unraveling.

It appears that Candidate John Burns can’t pay his own taxes on time?

According to the tax records, Mr. Burns has been late paying his car tax every year but one since 2002. Not some years. Not most years. Every year but one.

How does that even happen? Wouldn’t one pay it on time by accident every once in a while? This is the man who wants to control an entire county’s taxes and he doesn’t even have his own act together? Please.

See the chart below for a more up close view of his delinquencies. Keep in mind, this chart only counts a payment as delinquent if it’s paid after the date that interest begins.

UPDATE 10-31-14: It appears Mr. Burns has also been ticketed a few times for driving with an expired registration and a revoked license.  Again, this guy wants to be in charge of the purse strings in this county and has repeatedly blown off the legal process of registering ones vehicle and drove with a revoked license.

After a cross check of his address, Battleford Rd. and his date-of-birth of Oct. 14, 1970, the following came back tagged to Mr. Burns:
