Hayden Lake man ordered to file taxes

Here's a news release from the Idaho State Tax Commission:

BOISE — First District Court Judge Benjamin R. Simpson has ordered a Hayden Lake man to file Idaho tax returns for three years in which his reported income totaled more than $335,000, according to the Idaho State Tax Commission.

Judge Simpson issued an order to compel Scott A. Grunsted to file tax returns for 2006 through 2008. Grunsted has until Sept. 30 to comply with the judge’s order.

“Court action is our last resort to get someone to file their tax returns,” said Bob Geddes, chairman of the Tax Commission.  “At this stage, taxpayers have been given every opportunity to comply with the law, and we need to take this extra step to ensure that the system treats everyone fairly.”

Court files show that Grunsted had income of $103,860 for 2006; $111,877 for 2007; and $119,332 for 2008.
