Cuomo gets tough with tax deadbeats


NEW YORK Governor Andrew Cuomo is getting tough with tax deadbeats.

The Department of Motor of Motor Vehicles has suspended the driver’s licenses of 7,850 motorists who owe the state more than $10,000 in back taxes, The New York Post has revealed.

The effort is part of a state tax-enforcement program, launched last year, to prod delinquents into ponying up.

The state has already collected $48 million from thousands of other tax delinquents who value their driving privileges.

“Scofflaws who are ducking their tax bills should be on notice that the state will use any and all tools at [its] disposal to get them to pay what they owe,” Cuomo said. “Judging by the success of this initiative, that message has been heard loud and clear.”

Since last summer, the state Tax Department has warned more than 17,000 tax delinquents of the consequences of failing to settle their debts. Authorities told the deadbeats that their names would be forwarded to the DMV for action if they failed to respond within 60 days.

    When you go with selecting a properly credited relocation firm,
    make no mistake – they’re going to be following correct practices as well as safe guards to make
    sure your personal possessions show up safely and in good condition.
    Plus, companies have slowly learned that when they add up the costs associated with manufacturing overseas,
    they might as well pay American workers those union wages.
    And of course you will need to look for a home in your
    new city.

    On the other hand, a quality of long standing durability and features like color & clarity of acrylic beads is much better than the glass beads.
    Instead try a nice pair of wool or cotton chino dress trousers
    with a button down shirt, sweater vest, tie, and sport
    jacket. Being a model requires more than just being
    a pretty face.

    I’ve virtually no expertise in programming but I had been expecting
    to start my own blog soon. Anyway, should you have any
    ideas or techniques for new blog members feel free to share.

    to ask. Appreciate it!

  • ‘American Women’ actresses freaked out over their size 12 costumes June 22, 2018

Indeed, a size 12 then... […]
