"There may not be a happier man in Blytheville today than Mayor James Sanders.
In front of a group of church and business leaders Thursday morning, Sanders announced that the Internal Revenue Service approved an installment agreement to repay the city's multimillion payroll tax debt, which is currently at $3,817,603.05, though that figure could be lowered in the coming weeks.

The city's tax attorney, Baker Donelson of Memphis, informed Sanders of the agreement Wednesday.

The mayor said because of the agreement, the debt is no longer accruing penalties and interest.

Sanders added the city is negotiating with the IRS branch that handles penalties abatement, lobbying that some of that part of the $3.8 million debt be decreased. The mayor is hopeful that a decision on the penalties will be made within three months.

Along with stopping penalties and interest, the agreement suspends levy action against Thunder Bayou Golf Links, the selling of farm property, the $1.1 million parks and recreation funds that came to the city in March and minimum cash payments of city revenue...)

Interesting. Hope the city of Blytheville can now move forward and never go through something like this again. Hopefully now, it will pay the county what is owed.

If we owe 3.8 million and the tax is only going to make 3.5 million and the IRS doesn't wave any fees...

The IRS figured they better take the money before the finance woman takes it.

Think I saw the approximate pmts to the Memphis attys listed in the paper recently. Sounded pretty high to me, but most attorneys over-charge anyway in my opinion. Don't remember the exact charges but they are still adding up.

What I don't get is why the mayor would call in preachers for a photo op to make his statements. What do preachers have to do with it? Kind of weird if you ask me. Why didn't he call in a bunch of school teachers or plumbers or something like that? Preachers?

I think mayor said that GOD cleaned up this tax mess and GOD sent an extra million

Wonder why GOD allows all these killings and why GOD allowed the tax to get in the mess it was in?

Talking to yourself? Asking questions, and then answering them under another name?
