FULTON, Miss. (WTVA) -- The Mississippi State Auditor is asking the Itawamba County Chancery Clerk to repay nearly a half-million dollars.
Stacy Pickering made the request of Jim Witt Monday morning.
He says between August of 2007 and December 2012, Witt failed to settle funds paid for delinquent taxes as required under state law.
Pickerin says Witt did not take the money or benefit from it, but is responsible for funds that were lost during the time.
WTVA's Wayne Hereford will have more on today's announcement tonight on WTVA News.
