NC Lt. Gov. Robinson pays delinquent vehicle tax bills


Republican Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson says several unpaid vehicle tax bills were a surprise to him. WRAL-TV cited records showing the North Carolina official was delinquent on four Guilford County tax bills, their due dates ranging from 2006 to 2018. The Guilford tax office confirmed that five bills totaling $1,271 — a fifth in his wife's name — were paid Thursday. Robinson says they paid immediately as soon as they became aware of the bills. Robinson is a likely candidate for governor in 2024. He says past challenges with personal finances have taught him lessons that would help him run state government.
