Treasurer: Polygamist Sect Past Due On Taxes

Treasurer: Polygamist Sect Past Due On Taxes
CUSTER, SD - Custer County records show a polygamist sect that owns a 140-acre compound near Pringle is more than $178,000 past due on its property taxes.

The United Order of South Dakota has paid none of its 2009 property taxes due last year. The United Order is the legal name of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints community.

The group is also more than two years past due for part of its 2008 taxes that were due in 2009.

County Treasurer Dawn McLaughlin says late tax payments are unusual for the group, which had always paid on time and in cash.

The FLDS practices polygamy as a religious belief, and its president and spiritual leader, Warren Jeffs, is in a Texas prison.
