State suspending licenses for back taxes

Albany, N.Y. (AP) -- Gov. Andrew Cuomo said nearly 8,900 New York state residents have had their drivers licenses suspended for failing to pay taxes they owe the state.

The suspensions are a result of legislation that encourages people who owe more than $10,000 in back taxes to settle with the state Tax Department.

Cuomo said another 6,500 people have either paid their debt or are on a payment plan, resulting in a tax collection increase of roughly $56.4 million for the government.

Drivers have 60 days from the date they receive the suspension notice from the Tax Department to arrange payment. The Department of Motor Vehicles sends a second letter after the 60 days, providing an additional 15 days to respond.

The DMV is then authorized to suspend the license until the debt or a payment plan is arranged.
