Isn't it odd that someone trying to balance the city budget is probably not contributing to the city excise tax on his car because it is registered in Florida? Why would a city employee have a car registered in Florida? He clearly doesn't commute from Florida every day. Could it be that Florida is a tax haven that doesn't have a state income tax?
The Wall Street Journal reported that, "Some relatively high-tax states are increasingly cracking down on individuals who claim to have moved out of state, but still maintain strong connections to their former homes. Massachusetts plans to hire additional tax examiners over the next few months, some of whom will be assigned to a special "domicile unit" as part of its tax-audit program. "We are confident there are a significant number of cases for us in this area," says a Massachusetts Department of Revenue spokesman.
From the MA RMV website:
How do I report someone who has vehicles registered in another state but who lives here?Report this by calling the "I PAY TAX" hotline at 1-800-472-9829
One final thought - Seriously with the vanity plates???? "CITY ADM" too funny....
