An official with the Economic Development Authority said Friday that sex offender Jeffrey Epstein maintained nearly perfect compliance with the terms of his tax benefit agreements with the Virgin Islands government.

EDA Assistant CEO Wayne Biggs Jr. said that while there were “minor” issues over the 20 years that Epstein received tax exemptions through three different companies, “he’s been in compliance, for the most part, with everything.”
