Conan O'Brien Pays Back Taxes, Avoids Home Auction
A home owned by talk-show host Conan O'Brien has been removed from a Rhode Island auction after he paid some back taxes on the property. Town officials tell The Westerly Sun that O'Brien paid his $8,000 bill on Friday morning. O'Brien publicist Drew Shane issued a statement saying O'Brien had been unaware he owed back taxes. He blamed the problem on a clerical error that prevented the bill from reaching O'Brien's accountant in Los Angeles.
