D.C. Guard Service Company Faces $1.4 M Tax Lien

WASHINGTON, The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has filed a lien against the security firm that provides guard services for Washington schools and other government buildings.

According to the Washington Times, Hawk One Security Inc. must pay $1.4 million in delinquent taxes for the period between 1998 and 2002. This comes shortly after Hawk One said it was close to negotiating a settlement of federal liens stemming from previous company financial difficulties.

The city’s police department said it does not believe these issues were affecting the guards’ performance in schools.

Hawk One was awarded a two-year, $30 million school security contract last summer, as well as a $14 million contract to guard city government buildings.
