Tax Commission News Release

Preston woman ordered to file delinquent tax returns

BOISE, IDAHO — Sept. 23, 2015 — A Preston woman has until Sept. 25 to file delinquent Idaho income tax returns for two years in which her documented income totaled more than $97,000.

Catherine Durham was ordered to file returns for 2012 and 2013 by Sixth District Court Judge Mitchell W. Brown. Court records show that Durham had income of at least $50,595 in 2012 and $46,523 in 2013.

According to court documents, Durham is a repeat offender when it comes to filing late. The Idaho State Tax Commission took administrative action on four occasions to get her to file overdue returns for 1998-2000, 2003-2006, 2008, and 2009.   

“Some people act like the law just doesn’t apply to them,” said Tax Commission Chairman Rich Jackson. “That’s why we take court action as a last resort in getting people to file their tax returns; it’s the only way to assure a level playing field for all taxpayers.”  

The Tax Commission is represented in this case by Deputy Attorney General David Young.
