State tax officials have released a list you don’t want to make: those who owe the most in delinquent taxes.
Nonpayers who made the cut are all in tax lien status and include 230 individuals and 235 businesses that each have a tax debt ranging from $94,373 to nearly $2.8 million and owe a combined $119 million.
“While the vast majority of taxpayers are compliant with our tax laws, this is aimed at the small percentage who are not,” Department of Revenue Director Hartley Powell said in a released statement. “We are committed to taking action against taxpayers who knowingly avoid paying these debts, so we can protect the taxpayers who do comply.”
A release announcing the list notes that these debts became public record from the tax liens. Not included are those who have filed for bankruptcy protection, have made payment arrangements with the agency or have their debts in the GEAR or Setoff Debt programs.
