Arkansas House candidate owes IRS $30,000

As the filing period for state offices came to a close a few weeks ago, I began reviewing the Statements of Financial Interest for state candidates. One filing in particular jumped out at me.

Damon Wallace has filed to run as a Republican for House District 96, the seat being vacated by incumbent Rep. Duncan Baird. Wallace will face Grant Hodges in the Republican primary in May. According to Wallace’s SFI, he currently owes “approx $30,000” to the IRS. On the form, Wallace described the nature of the debt as “taxes.”
