Knox County Mayor Tim Burchett admitted he made a mistake on his property taxes on Thursday, and paid some of them late.

In a statement, Burchett explained that he forgot to pay taxes on two pieces of property he owns on Amherst Road.

He discovered the mistake Wednesday and paid the taxes, plus a $57 dollar late fee.

"This oversight was my fault and unintentional. It will not happen in the future," said Burchett in a statement.

Knox County property taxes are due by February 28th.
