Arco man ordered to file delinquent tax returns
BOISE, IDAHO — June 2, 2014 — Time is running out for an Arco man to file delinquent Idaho income tax returns for four years in which his reported income totaled more than $140,000.
John Crane, a self-employed businessman, was ordered to file returns for the years 2009 through 2012 by Seventh District Court Judge Alan C. Stephens. Crane has until June 6 to comply with the judge’s order.
Court files show that Crane had income of at least $33,180 in 2009; $25,425 in 2010; $41,856 in 2011; and $42,495 in 2012.
According to court records, he was also delinquent in filing returns for 2000 through 2008.
“The law requires taxpayers to file an income tax return if they meet the filing requirement,” said Tax Commissioner David Langhorst. “Most citizens do the right thing without prompting, and in fairness to them, we need to follow up with those who don’t obey the law.”
The Tax Commission is represented in this case by Deputy Attorney General William von Tagen.
