State Rep. C. Wesley Morgan, a Republican who represents part of Madison County, has not paid property taxes that local officials said were due on his 112-foot long houseboat. Morgan said the company that made the boat told him that if he registered the vessel with the U.S. Coast Guard, he would not owe any further taxes on it. That is incorrect, state and local officials said. The boat is docked on Lake Cumberland in Pulaski County.
