Conan O’Brien almost lost a home close to his heart over an outstanding tax bill.
The late-night host owed $8,000 in back taxes on his family’s Westerly, R.I., house. Fortunately, he was notified about the bill just in time and was able to pay it off before the home went to auction.
“As soon as I was made aware that the tax bill on my parents’ house was being mailed to the wrong address, I paid the bill immediately,” the “Conan” host says. “The problem has been corrected. I am grateful to the reporter at the Westerly Sun who spotted this error and notified me.”
