New financial issues have surfaced for the beleaguered Internatonal Civil Rights Center and Museum in Greensboro. The museum is now two years behind on its city and county property taxes.

Guilford County officials say that as of Friday, the museum had not paid its 2015 tax bill of over $29,000.

Tax Department Director Ben Chavis says the center owes the city more than $57,000.

Chavis tells The News & Record of Greensboro that no one from the museum has contacted him to discuss payment arrangements.

The organization has struggled financially since its founding in 1994 and has needed taxpayer contributions of close to $5 million to stay afloat.

The museum recently lost its chief fundraiser, Bay Love.

Museum officials have had no comment since confirming Love's departure.
