The biggest outstanding debt is in Knott County, where a company called Kentucky Fuel Corporation is $1.92 million behind on taxes on real estate, mining equipment and coal reserves, according to local records. The taxes are overdue from a time when Kentucky Fuel was controlled by James CJustice II, who was elected governor of West Virginia as a Democrat in 2016 but later switched his registration to RepublicanJustice’s son and daughter became controllers of the company in April 2017, according to federal mining records. Kentucky Fuel also owes $119,221 in 2017 taxes in Knott County that are not delinquent, but began accruing penalties in January and will be delinquent in April if not paid by then. jQuery(document).ready(function () { mi.renderNewsletterIframe.init({ container: '#newsletter-signUpWidget', url: 'http://x.email.kentucky.com/ats/url.aspx?cr=663&wu=186,http://x.email.kentucky.com/ats/url.aspx?cr=663&wu=190,http://x.email.kentucky.com/ats/url.aspx?cr=663&wu=196' }); }); Never miss a local story.

In Knott County, the school district’s share of the $1.92 million in delinquent Kentucky Fuel taxes would be more than $1 million. The district has seen an annual drop of more than $900,000 in revenue from a tax on unmined coal, which has declined because of difficult market conditions, causing it to cut jobs through attrition and put off buying busesStill, the draft budget for the 2018-19 school year projects a $100,000 shortfall, said Greg Conn, finance officer for the school systemThe district will likely have to cut jobs. The delinquent taxes owed by Kentucky Fuel would be a great help in weathering the crunch, Conn said. “We wouldn’t be nearly as strapped as we are right now,” he said.
