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.

And then lower the threshold to 6000 and then attach other crimes as well.

If this is not abuse of power what is?

Either no one has that power or Banks and private lenders should have that right as well.

There should be no marriage license at all. Government should not be in that business of deciding who is married to whom.

this is a terrible idea. I know someone who owes more than 10k to the IRS. Not because they don't pay thier bills but they are struggling to keep their heads above water. They have 10 kids and both parents work long hours just to make ends meet. They rely heavily on their cars for their jobs. The thought of them not having their drivers license is horrifying.

"They have 10 kids and both parents work long hours just to make ends meet".

seriously, you need to get a life. It's really none of your business how many kids they have.

i think the amount is the problem, because there r people who pay a year 18,000 in monsey, so for a late payment of a half year they should suspend ur license?... I would rather say, if u dont pay ur taxes for 3 years in a row they should suspend it....

You are correct, it is no one else's business.

Unless they are relying on community support, welfare assistance, tuition breaks, and the like, in which case it absolutely is the community's business.

I agree. The family I am talking about though is not on any kind of government assistance, nor do they rely on community charity.

A family with 10 kids not on any gov't program and owing money to IRS after all those deductions must be doing quite nicely. I would have to say they are the exception to the rule as most people with that many children are on numerous programs.

The best part about libertarianism is that it will never be tried in practice, so you can take the most naive absolutists positions and consider them reasonable. So if I want to marry a second or third wife and still be married to my first one, the government should have nothing to say about it? Or if you want to marry your sister?
