New York state tax officials are sending 16,000 notices to delinquent taxpayers threatening to suspend their driver's licenses if they don't pay up. The initiative, authorized under a new law proposed by the Cuomo administration, targets New Yorkers with past-due tax liabilities of more than 10,000 dollars. Officials expect to collect 26 million dollars this year and up to 6 million dollars annually after that. They say 96 percent of taxes are paid reliably by businesses and individuals while 4 percent are collected through audits, collections and criminal investigations. Delinquent taxpayers notified by the state will have 60 days to arrange payment or receive a second letter with a 15-day deadline, after which the recipient's license will be suspended for failure to establish a payment plan.
