CHARLESTON, W.Va. — Last year, Gov. Jim Justice’s family announced they were putting three Virginia properties up for auction. One year later, the properties haven’t sold, and the family’s companies owe thousands of dollars in delinquent property taxes.
The Justice family said they had decided to sell the three colonial-era estates last year to downsize their agricultural focus, and scheduled an auction for the end of June. The Justice family didn’t live on any of the properties.
Except for three parcels of land on one property that were sold in November, the three historic properties remain on the market. Now, Justice’s companies owe about $450,000 in property tax on the three properties and others in three Virginia counties, according to county records.
