Onda added that Borges plans to pay off a portion of the remaining $168,161 in federal taxes next week and likely enter a payment plan for the remainder.
Borges is the front runner to become Ohio Republican Party chairman when the party’s 66-member state central committee meets April 26.
The Dayton Daily News broke the story Thursday that public documents filed in Franklin County showed Borges owed $592,000 in state and federal taxes. The liens dated back to 2005. Borges said he disputed the biggest lien — $354,262 — which was the result of the sale of his house in 2007 improperly being reported as income.
