Tax Commission News Release
Sandpoint couple ordered to file delinquent tax returns
BOISE, IDAHO — Sept. 23, 2015 — A Sandpoint couple has until Sept. 25 to file delinquent Idaho income tax returns for three years in which their documented income totaled more than $173,000.
Mark and Patricia Perlinger were ordered to file returns for 2011-2013 by First District Court Judge Barbara Buchanan. Court records show that the couple had income of at least $56,779 in 2011, $57,338 in 2012, and $59,671 in 2013.
According to court documents, the Perlingers are repeat offenders when it comes to filing late. The Idaho State Tax Commission took administrative action on three occasions to get them to file overdue returns for 2005-2006, 2007, and 2008-2009.
“The vast majority of our taxpayers comply with the law without prompting, but there are a few who choose to ignore the requirements,” said Tax Commission Chairman Rich Jackson. “To keep things fair for all the taxpayers who file their returns on time, we need to follow up with those who don’t.”
The Tax Commission is represented in this case by Deputy Attorney General George Brown.
