New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell no longer owes back taxes to the Internal Revenue Service, according to a federal tax database, potentially putting to rest any revival of the tax controversy that dogged her 2017 election campaign and re-appeared during her first term. 

During an interview Wednesday with members of the editorial board of the Times-Picayune | The New Orleans Advocate, Cantrell said she successfully appealed an IRS finding that she and her family owed roughly $95,000 in taxes over six years ending in 2018. 

A search of federal tax information Wednesday indicated that more than $122,000 in liens had been released against Cantrell and her husband, attorney Jason Cantrell. The IRS also released another $24,010 in liens against Jason Cantrell alone.
