Juanita Bynum Payes Her Property Taxes!

Prophetess Juanita Bynum has paid her taxes and will not have her property sold, much to the chagrin of all of the online heresy hunters and pulpit pimp watchers! This lady has been attacked so harshly by so many who were supposed to be of the church. Maybe she did get a little off base, but the level of the attacks against her were uncalled for and many of them were very mean spirited. Wouldn’t it be amazing if she comes out of this situation with even more influence and popularity? Juanita Haters please go mind your own business and your own problems please!

The Atlanta Journal Constitution reported the following:

Prophetess Juanita Bynum said Friday she has paid the delinquent property tax on her $4.5 million compound in Waycross, where officials had threatened to auction the property.Bynum said at a press conference that the debt was an oversight.

Nevertheless, Ware County tax officials say they are depositing Bynum’s check for more than $33,000 but they don’t intend to take her property off the market until they are sure the payment is good. An additional $300 is still owed on the property.

“I’m not taking it out of tax sale until the check clears the bank,” said Ware County tax commissioner Steve Barnard. “It takes about a week.”

Barnard said Bynum’s representatives have agreed to pay the $300 shortfall.

Bynum is seeking a tax exemption on the property and hopes to recoup the tax payment in the future, she said.

The 30-acre compound with a lake view in South Georgia was purchased to house the headquarters of Juanita Bynum Ministries and the Mt. Olive Country Spa for women seeking pampering, prayer and spiritual guidance.

Bynum said her lawyers have applied for a tax exemption on the property, but the deadline for the property taxes came before the paperwork was complete. The pastor said she had put $5,000 down on the tax bill earlier but was advised by her attorneys not to pay the full bill until the exemption came through.

Earlier this week, the property was scheduled for auction for non-payment of taxes. Barnard filed a lien against the compound on June 7 because $32,007.56 in 2006 property taxes had not been paid. According to the lien, a $3,200 penalty and $2,240 in interest also is owed.

Bynum provided a copy of her receipt to reporters that showed $38,904.15 had been paid on the account.

“The word of God tells me my integrity shall preserve my inheritance,” Bynum said. “I am not going to lose anything.”
