Engler owes $161,616 to IRS for unpaid taxes

Published: Tue, February 11, 2014 @ 3:36 p.m.

YOUNGSTOWN — David Engler, a candidate for the Democratic nomination to the 7th District Court of Appeals, has $161,616 in federal tax liens filed by the IRS on his property for unpaid taxes, according to documentation filed at the Mahoning County recorder’s office.

Of that amount, $154,193 is for unpaid personal federal taxes and $7,423 for taxes not paid by his law practice.

Engler could not be reached today by The Vindicator to comment.

The amount would be higher, but Engler of Canfield made a $5,313 payment to the Internal Revenue Service in October 2011.

The liens, filed by the IRS between December 2010 and two months ago, don’t indicate if Engler has made any additional payments towards his unpaid taxes.

Also, Engler owes $11,345.19 to the Ohio Department of Taxation and is having his wages garnished to pay that amount, according to documentation filed two months ago in Mahoning County Common Pleas Court.

Engler, a county educational service center board member and former county commissioner, is running against Youngstown Deputy Law Director Anthony Donofrio in the May 6 Democratic primary for a seat on the court of appeals.

Judge Joseph J. Vukovich isn’t seeking re-election leaving the seat open in this year’s election. The winner of the Democratic primary will face Judge Carol Ann Robb of Columbiana County Municipal Court, who is running unopposed in the Republican primary.

Dem or Rep, I will not vote for any judge candidate who can't use good judgement in their own personal lives.

Having unpaid Federal or State Taxes should be a automatic disqualifier for any Government position such as this. If he can't handle his own affairs why would anyone entrust him to handle ours.

Wake up Tri-County lets elect competent individuals!

People are confusing the issues here. Unpaid Taxes clearly are not something to be proud of. However neither is trying to use the system for personal gain as the Donofrios intend to do.

If another Donofrio is elected to this court; then the taxpayers and state will be put out. Attorney Donofrio and his brother BOTH know that if he can get elected; they will both receive full compensation for doing part of the job.

Why is the mainstream media failing to point this out?

Only 3 judges are required to hear a case. HOWEVER; both Donofrios will not be able to hear the same cases together.

SO, they will both be excluded from doing their share of work on the board. IT is a clear attempt at using the system to one's personal advantage.
