A Bridgeville company led the list of the top 100 delinquent taxpayers in Delaware.
Delmar Homes owes nearly $1.2 million, according to the list from the state Division of Revenue. That was far more than the amount owed by second largest delinquent taxpayer, lwt, based in Glen Mills, PA.
Most of the businesses on the list owed less than $70,000.ddt_1_bus
The list consists of businesses that have one or more unpaid tax liens with the Delaware Division of Revenue, which they have failed to repay or arrange to repay despite attempts by the Division to resolve the issue.
All together, the businesses and individuals included on the lists owe more than $3.6 million to the state.
“The Division of Revenue is committed to collecting all amounts that are owed to the State, and using all tools that are available to us to do so,” says Division of Revenue Director Jennifer Hudson. “While a large percentage of taxpayers resolve their liabilities to avoid having their names posted online, many others will wait until their names are actually posted online to resolve their accounts.”
Delaware is among the more than 20 states and the District of Columbia that publish delinquent taxpayers’ names online.
Under Delaware law, the division is required to publicly disclose an individual or business’ unpaid tax liability information until one of the following occurs:
- Taxpayer pays the balance in full
- Taxpayer provides proof of payment
- Taxpayer provides proof of bankruptcy
- Taxpayer enters into an acceptable installment agreement
