Officials: Lotto winners owe $72K in back taxes

? More troubles for Long Island?s biggest Mega Millionaire winners.

The Morrisons, of Miller Place, won the $165 million jackpot in December and now officials tell Newsday the couple owes $72,000 in back taxes on six homes they own.

The homes were part of their now defunct housing shelter.

The Town of Brookhaven says two of the houses are uninhabitable.

The couple's attorney says the Morrisons don't have to pay the back taxes from their personal funds because the homes were part of a corporation.
