Cuomo wants tax scofflaws put on notice
Albany, N.Y. - Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced an initiative to encourage people who owe significant back taxes to pay up!
Under the new program, a New York State driver license can be suspended when a taxpayer’s past-due tax liability exceeds $10,000.
The crackdown is the result of laws introduced as part of the Executive Budget and signed into law this year.
“Our message is simple: tax scofflaws who don’t abide by the same rules as everyone else are not entitled to the same privileges as everyone else,” Governor Cuomo said.
The Tax Department is sending the first round of 16,000 suspension notices to delinquent taxpayers, who have 60 days from the mailing date to arrange payment with the Department.
