DETROIT (AP) — Records show Detroit's new emergency financial manager has tax liens on his home in Maryland.

The Detroit News reports (http://bit.ly/15SowoE ) Kevyn Orr has two outstanding liens on his $1 million home in Chevy Chase, Md., for $16,000 in unemployment taxes in 2010 and 2011.

The state records also show that two other liens of more than $16,000 in unemployment and income taxes were satisfied in 2010 and 2011.

Orr was appointed Detroit's financial manager by Gov. Rick Snyder on Thursday.

Orr said Friday he didn't know anything about the liens when shown the records by the News.

Later in the day, Snyder's spokeswoman, Sara Wurfel, said Orr would pay "in full ASAP."

Wurfel said Orr blamed the problems on an outside accountant hired to file his tax returns.
