RALEIGH, N.C. -- North Carolina State Auditor Beth Wood has paid in full the property taxes that were past due on her Raleigh home.
Wake County property tax records show Wood paid $1,238 late last month. The bill for 2009 taxes was due in September and started collecting interest in January.
Wood said last month she was trying to juggle her debts like other average people. She says she had to borrow $90,000 to help her 2008 campaign.
The Democrat is a certified public accountant who took office last year. She has said her personal finances are irrelevant to her work in state government.
