Terry L. Fleming, the Little Rock businessman facing civil lawsuits that accuse him of human trafficking and sexually exploiting younger women, has had a $960,000 tax lien filed against him for not paying state income taxes.
The Arkansas Department of Finance & Administration filed the paperwork in November in Pulaski County Circuit Court, saying that Fleming owed the state for taxes in 2017 and 2018.
But Fleming disagreed with the claim. Fleming was a resident of Florida, but DF&A said Arkansas state income taxes were due, his attorney said in a statement to Whispers last month.
“The dispute was settled, and Terry Fleming agreed to pay a portion of the amount claimed in installment payments and agreed to a tax lien to secure the payment of the settlement,” Little Rock attorney Charles Darwin “Skip” Davidson said in the statement. “This matter has been resolved, and the settlement amount is being paid.”
Fleming is current on all payments due to DF&A under the settlement agreement, Davidson said.
Fleming, the founder of Little Rock’s PerfectVision Manufacturing, one of Arkansas’ largest private companies, had been accused of human trafficking and exploiting younger women sexually. Three civil cases have been dismissed; two are pending.
Fleming has denied the allegations.
