The Santa Maria family farm owned by Lt. Gov. Abel Maldonado settled its dispute with the International Revenue Service by paying $111,146 in back taxes on July 26, the Los Angeles Times reported.

The IRS had placed a lien in that amount on Agro-Jal Enterprises in April, an action that was first revealed in a Times report on July 24. The IRS claimed that about a dozen vehicles driven by company officers were in fact personal vehicles and should have been disclosed and taxed as compensation.

Agro-Jal disputed that and said the trucks were used for company business. The company ended up paying the tax bill “under protest,” according to a statement issued by Maldonado’s brother.
