Kinder, gentler IRS gives town another 90 days to pay

The Internal Revenue Service granted Morris, Ala., a reprieve, giving the tiny burg another 90 days to ante up $60,000 in back taxes or face a shutdown.

"They have agreed to 90 days. We now have until Jan. 6, 1998," Mayor Mike Jefcoat told Reuters by telephone Monday. "It would be very easy to jump on the anti-IRS bandwagon, but this appears to be money we legitimately owe."The town of 1,400 residents had been facing a Thursday deadline to pay $60,000 in back taxes, penalties and interest.
