Lexington Herald-Leader: Richie Farmer failed to report personal use of state vehicle for tax purposes

Agriculture Commissioner Richie Farmer failed to report or pay taxes on his personal use of a state vehicle for the past six years, despite repeated warnings from state auditors, according to public records.

Farmer, a Republican candidate for lieutenant governor in the May 17 primary, acknowledges the error. Farmer will get amended wage and tax statements and have an undetermined sum of money deducted from his paychecks in coming months to compensate retroactively for his past failure to pay, said his spokesman, Bill Clary.
