The commissioner of the city's Department of Information Technology and Telecommunications has agreed to give back $2,800 after skirting taxes by claiming two residences as her permanent address—one of them in Florida. While working for the city, Commissioner Carole Post had been declaring Florida residency and taking advantage of a tax exemption intended for full-time Florida residents, allowing her and her husband to avoid some taxes on their multimillion dollar West Palm Beach property.

According to the Post, the Bloomberg administration appointee said she did not break any city rules and that by turning over the money, she has brought the issue to a close. "I am returning the benefits received, a total of approximately $2,800 over eight years, to the city and state. Florida authorities have informed me that such action would put us in full compliance with their requirements and would resolve the matter," she told the tabloid in a statement.
