Tax Commission News Release

Retired Moscow educator and wife ordered to file delinquent tax returns

BOISE, IDAHO — June 24, 2014 — A judge has ordered a retired Moscow educator and his wife to file delinquent Idaho income tax returns for two years in which their reported income totaled more than $220,000.

Richard and Kathleen Prudence Heimsch were ordered to file returns for 2011 and 2012 by Second District Court Judge John R. Stegner. They have until June 27 to file the returns.   

Court files show that the couple had income of at least $101,889 in 2011 and $119,982 in 2012.

“The vast majority of our taxpayers are good about complying with the law without prompting, but there are a few who choose to ignore or not comply with the requirements,” said Idaho State Tax Commission Chairman Rich Jackson. “That’s why we take court action as a last resort in getting people to file their tax returns; it’s the only way to assure that there’s a level playing field for all taxpayers.” 

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