Lewiston couple ordered to file Idaho tax returns

BOISE, IDAHO — Sept. 25, 2013 — Second District Court Judge Jeff Brudie has ordered a Lewiston couple to file Idaho tax returns for three years in which their reported income totaled more than $400,000.

Judge Brudie issued an order to compel Brad and Terri Johnson to file tax returns for 2009 through 2011. The Johnsons have until Oct. 11 to comply with the judge’s order.

“It’s a shame that taxpayer money has to be spent on taking some people to court to file their tax returns, when the majority of citizens voluntarily do what the law requires of them,” said Rich Jackson, chairman of the Idaho State Tax Commission. “However,” he added, “it’s only right that everyone gets treated the same under the law.”

Court files show that the Johnsons had income of at least $131,801 for 2009; $134,758 for 2010; and $145,805 for 2011.

The Tax Commission is being represented in this case by Deputy Attorney General William von Tagen.
