Tax delinquents to have driver’s license suspended

Tax delinquents to have driver’s license suspended

Don’t pay your taxes and lose your driver license.

That is a new initiative announced by Governor Cuomo Monday.

Under the new program, a New York State driver license can be suspended when a taxpayer’s past-due tax liability exceeds $10,000.

Cuomo says the new plan will increase State collections by $26-million this fiscal year and as much as $6 million each year thereafter.

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.
