Moscow attorney ordered to file income tax return
BOISE, IDAHO — Sept. 19, 2011 — Second District Court Judge Michael J. Griffin has ordered a Moscow attorney to file an Idaho income tax return for 2009, in which his reported income totaled at least $184,500, according to the Idaho State Tax Commission.
Judge Simpson issued an order to compel James Edward Siebe to file the tax return by Sept. 30 to comply with the judge’s order.
“It’s unfortunate that we have to go to the expense of court action to force someone to obey the law,” said Bob Geddes, chairman of the Tax Commission. “But when that person is an officer of the court—sworn to uphold the law—it’s especially troubling.”
He added, “Our goal in administering Idaho’s taxes is to ensure fairness for all, and this action reinforces our commitment to protecting that goal.”
