A federal tax lien for nearly $67,000 was filed Wednesday in Harford Circuit Court against Inter-County Bus Lines, operated by Havre de Grace City Councilman James C. Vancherie Jr.

Court records showed the bus company, which runs commuter service from Havre de Grace to Baltimore and other points in Harford County, allegedly failed to make quarterly deposits to the Internal Revenue Service for income and Social Security withholding taxes for its employees.

The records list alleged outstanding taxes of $66,790 as follows: $1,989 for June 30, 1992; $31,755 for Sept. 30, 1992; $33,046 for Dec. 31, 1992.

Privacy laws prohibit the IRS from disclosing additional information about the case, said Domenic LaPonzina, spokesman for the Baltimore district of the Internal Revenue Service.

"Until the lien is paid in full, it remains outstanding," he said.

Mr. Vancherie, 69, also owns apartments and has a family-run restaurant in Havre de Grace.

Mr. Vancherie was not available for comment, said a receptionist at the bus company who declined to give her name.

The federal tax lien will not affect service or the operation of the company, she added.

The company has been operating since 1941.
