Don't pay your taxes and lose your driver’s license.
Under the new program announced today by Gov. Andrew Cuomo, a New York State driver's license can be suspended when a taxpayer’s past-due tax liability exceeds $10,000.
Cuomo says the new plan will increase state collections by $26 million this fiscal year and as much as $6 million each year thereafter.
The Tax Department is sending the first round of 16,000 suspension notices to delinquent taxpayers, who have 60 days from the mailing date to arrange payment.
