Post Falls couple ordered to file Idaho tax returns
BOISE, IDAHO — Dec. 4, 2013 — First District Court Judge Benjamin R. Simpson has ordered a Post Falls couple to file Idaho tax returns for seven years in which their reported income totaled more than $600,000.
Judge Simpson issued an order to compel Jack and Judith Alling to file tax returns for 2005 through 2011. The couple has until Dec. 17 to comply with the judge’s order.
“Filing a tax return isn’t optional for someone with a filing requirement—it’s the law,” said Idaho State Tax Commission Chairman Richard W. Jackson. “The Tax Commission simply works within the court system to enforce that law, to ensure that all Idaho citizens are being treated equally and fairly.”
Court files show that the Allings had income of at least $89,064 for 2005; $92,721 for 2006; $90,621 for 2007; $85,537 for 2008; $86,475 for 2009; $84,787 for 2010; and $81,144 for 2011.
The Tax Commission is being represented in this case by Deputy Attorney General William von Tagen.
