BOISE, Idaho — Dec. 22, 2022 — A Coeur d’Alene man missed a court-ordered deadline to file four years of delinquent Idaho income tax returns. As a result, the First District Court has scheduled a sanctions hearing against him on February 15, 2023.

The court ordered Robert J. Mendenhall to file returns for 2016 through 2019 by November 24. Court filings show that Mendenhall had income of at least $82,485 in 2016, $76,111 in 2017, $67,496 in 2018, and $64,539 in 2019, totaling more than $290,000.

“I would like to thank the over 98% of Idaho citizens who voluntarily comply by filing their tax returns as required,” said Idaho State Tax Commission Chairman Jeff McCray. “We will hold those who don’t file accountable to ensure fairness for all.”

The Tax Commission is represented in this case by Brett Jarvis, deputy attorney general for the State of Idaho.
