NewsChannel 13 has learned that the raids are connected to overdue payments owed to the IRS, to the tune of more than $50,000.

That overdue payment -- if true, could leave taxpayers on the hook for more than $18,000 in penalties.

The woman whose home was raided, Barbara Henry, resigned as treasurer in August.
