Former De­fense De­part­ment ad­viser Eric Lynn (D) “had sep­ar­ate homestead ex­emp­tions for prop­er­ties in Wash­ing­ton, D.C., and Mary­land, a double tax break that vi­ol­ates the laws of both jur­is­dic­tions.” Lynn said it was the D.C. gov­ern­ment’s mis­take and re­fun­ded the D.C. tax of­fice $606.90 on Wed­nes­day.

“If the D.C. gov­ern­ment screwed this up and gave us something we didn’t de­serve, we’re cer­tainly will­ing to make this whole,” he said. (Tampa Bay Times)
