Controversial Gainesville pastor, Dove World owes more than $100K in unpaid taxes

GAINESVILLE, Fla. - Controversial Gainesville Pastor Terry Jones is facing big tax troubles.

While Jones is known for burning the Quran and supporting an anti-Islamic video, the IRS now says Jones and his Dove World Outreach Center owe more than $100,000 for unpaid income taxes, and have now placed a lien on the property.

Jones did not have a comment tonight.

While the church itself would be tax-exempt. The lien might be linked to a furniture business Dove has run for a couple of years.

Jones was first in the spotlight for burning a Muslim holy book last year, prompting riots overseas.

The same thing happened this month when Jones promoted an internet movie about Muhammed that Muslims call blasphemous.
