Sitka cracks down on sales tax delinquents

Posted: Tuesday, December 05, 2000

SITKA (AP) -- Sitka is stepping up attempts to collect sales taxes from businesses that haven't been paying the taxes or submitting reports, officials for the consolidated city and borough say.

''The city and borough is trying to be a little more efficient in using its legal powers to get sales tax collected,'' city attorney Cliff Groh said at a meeting last week of the consolidated government's assembly.

Some of the 25 businesses that will be getting letters over the next few weeks have not submitted payments or tax payments for more than a year, according to city finance director Dave Wolff. The city doesn't know how much might be owed, he said.

Sitka has a 5 percent general sales tax, plus a 4 percent bed tax on overnight lodging.
