Tax Commission News Release
Boise man ordered to file delinquent tax returns
BOISE, IDAHO — March 24, 2014 — April 15 may be the filing deadline for income tax returns, but a Boise man has only until April 4 to file delinquent returns for three years in which his reported income totaled more than $200,000.
James Flora was ordered to file returns for the years 2010 through 2012 by Fourth District Court Judge Richard D. Greenwood.
Court files show that Flora had income of at least $54,981 in 2010; $58,829 in 2011; and $88,688 in 2012.
He hasn’t filed Idaho income tax returns in 14 of the last 22 years, according to Idaho State Tax Commission records. The Tax Commission brought administrative action against Flora on two separate occasions, one for failing to file his tax returns for the years 1991-1998, and the other for not filing for 2006 and 2008-2009.
“We’re seeing more cases of repeat offenders among nonfilers,” said Tax Commissioner David Langhorst. “These are people who have been through the drill, they know that the law requires them to file their tax returns, and yet they deliberately fail to do so.”
The Tax Commission is represented in this case by Deputy Attorney General William von Tagen.
