The Baltimore Sun’s Nicole Fuller is reporting that Anne Arundel County Councilman Daryl Jones has been charged in Baltimore’s US District Court for failure to file tax returns in 2005.

According to The Sun, Jones “willfully” failed to file a return on nearly $250,000 of income. 2005 is the year before Jones was first elected to the County Council.

From The Baltimore Sun:

Anne Arundel County Councilman Daryl D. Jones was charged Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Baltimore with failing to file tax returns in 2005, according to court documents.

Jones, a Democrat from Severn who is serving his second term on the County Council, “willfully” failed to file a return by the deadline, according to court documents. Jones, a defense attorney, earned a gross income of $244,365 in 2005 — before he was elected to the council.

In a brief interview, Jones said he did not immediately file his taxes because he was dealing with his mother’s illness and death. He said he eventually filed “a couple of years ago.”
