Juanita Bynum’s House Up For Auction

$32,000 In Taxes Due On $4.5 Million Estate Forces Auction

October 17. 2007

This is a follow up to the October 5, 2007 “Money & Divorce” article where I wrote about the problems finances or lack thereof can breed in a marriage. In it I wrote about pastor Juanita Bynum’s estranged husband bishop Thomas Weeks and the financial crisis he is currently steeped in.

This week’s news of Bynum’s financial difficulties further complicates this rough year they’ve been having. I do hope she will be able to meet the debt, then sell the house on her terms and purchase something smaller.

“Bynum’s $4.5M home in south Ga set for auction for nonpayment of taxes. Evangelist Juanita Bynum’s $4.5 million South Georgia compound is scheduled to be auctioned off next month for nonpayment of property taxes, officials said.

Ware County Tax Commissioner Steve Barnard filed a lien against the 23.6-acre property owned by Juanita Bynum Ministries on June 7, citing failure to pay $32,007.56 in 2006 property tax.

According to the lien, a $3,200 penalty and $2,240 in interest is also owed.

Barnard said Tuesday that the property, on St. Bernard Trail near Waycross, will be sold at auction on Nov. 6 on the steps of the Ware County Courthouse. The auction will be canceled if Bynum Ministries, which still has ownership, pays the full amount before that date, he said.

Bynum’s Waycross-based ministry bought the property for $4.5 million last year.

Barnard said there is a 7,487-square-foot house, a 6,748-square-foot house and a 1,366-square-foot house on the property. Bynum lives in one of the homes, he said.” http://www.ajc.com/metro
