Albany - NY Gov Proposes Drivers License Suspension If You Owe More Than $10,000 In Taxes
Albany, NY - The Cuomo administration has proposed suspending the driver’s license of anyone who owes more than $10,000 in overdue taxes.
As part of its proposal for the fiscal year starting April 1, the administration is calling for the new program to help with collection enforcement of “past-due tax liabilities.”
Those are described as “fixed and final,” where the taxpayer has exhausted their rights to administrative and court review.
It would be modeled after the state program using license suspension to compel child support payments.
The budget proposed Tuesday includes increasing the civil penalty for possessing unstamped or illegally stamped cigarettes from $150 to $600 per carton.
