MN lists delinquent taxpayers in liquor industry

Posted by salestax on August 20, 2009

MN is taking a hard stand against liquor establishments who are late in filing taxes.

The list, to be updated each month, has three (3) sections.

1. Those who are newly delinquent

2. Those who were delinquent in prior months and remain so.

3. Those who have cleared their delinquency

MN further goes to use this list to warning to vendors of these businesses – vendors should not sell to the delinquent taxpayers on the list until they have been removed from the list.

Generally, states put out delinquent taxpayer lists to shame businesses and individuals into paying delinquent taxes. MN takes this one step further in restricting vendors from even selling to those who are delinquent. I’m sure this practice really stifles the business if they aren’t getting goods to sell – especially in the liquor industry. I’d like to know how quickly this pressure turns these businesses compliant. Does anyone want to study the list for a few months and see how quickly one business moves from the delinquent list to the “good list.” Or how much quicker does this method take over another state who doesn’t restrict vendors, but just uses the shame-on-you listing. There has got to be a scholarly research paper in this somewhere. If anyone uses this idea, I’d love to see the final analysis.
