IRS abates $700,281.90 in penalties.
The "potential surplus" is projected to be $382,678.90.(We've been told collections have been higher than projected, so look for the final surplus to be around the 700K amount)

"Sanders said the tax will collect the entire 15 months, even if the debt is paid off".

The mayor goes on trying to use some slick language by stating "the only thing it can be used for is the payroll taxes", "It cannot be used for anything else. It cannot be used for the golf course. It cannot be used for parks and rec. It cannot be used for jail fees".

Reality: This money can be used for anything the City wants. Sales tax money will be used for current year taxes instead of paying it from the general fund, which frees up money in the general fund to be used however the city wants.

I know I'm stating the obvious, but the mayor wouldn't have said this if he wasn't trying to fool some of the taxpayers.

This is shameful.

The City will profit from its fraud.

Wasn't it said that if tax debt was paid early, they would remove the tax early? Now the "extra" can go to the general fund. That general fund is like a black hole in outer space, no end in sight!

The city picks up the garbage, provides fire and police protection, and a myriad of other services. If you live in the city limits you will probably benefit from the tax you dumb arse. If youndon't live in the city, I don't give a rat's arse what you think.

We pay for our garbage pickup. We have one of the highest crime rates in the nation. We've passed tax after tax to fund fire protection.

You must be one of those people who like to see criminals profit from their crimes.

I told you dumba$$es the city would do this with the excess. I told you you dumba$$3s will also vote to keep this stupid tax.

Every last one of you who lives here and votes for this crap deserves what you're gonna get - which is a hellhole of a place to live with outrageous taxes and nothing - NOTHING - to show for it.

My house is on the market. As soon as it's sold I'm leaving. Yeah, trust me, I won't let the door hit me in the as$ on the way out. I'll leave too fast for that. Enjoy the $hit you've landed yourself in.

Tennyson stated in Courier News:

Those in charge of passing along city employee payroll deductions to the IRS held on to $2.2 million of the employee/IRS money for whatever reasons and thus incurred a $1 million IRS penalty. This incompetence should be explained in detail to the taxpayers of Blytheville.

I don't care if it ends up $2 million or $100,000, somebody should be held responsible for that amount of penalty and interest money essentially purloined from the city's already-stretched money supply. Such outrageous irresponsibility can't be allowed to go unpunished.

The incompetence would be the 6 STOOGES pretending to be council members during the time the taxes should have been paid, as well as the RING LEADER of the 6 STOOGES, the previous mayor!!

When they were promoting this tax please correct me if I'm wrong. Seems I remember the Mayor saying that the sales tax for this could end sooner if the IRS was paided off! Wasn't this statement made?

All need to remember, 40% of the sales tax collected is from non-resident folks spending their money in Bly. U only payn 60 cents on the dollar to pay this thing off. Deal with what they do at the end; then. WOW waste a lot of hot air.

We all need to remember that by enacting this sales tax, the city gets to continue with its out of control spending which got us in this mess in the first place.

We also all need to remember, the city gets to profit from its fraud.

What lesson have we been taught. Crime pays.

Yeah, and the local vendors have to collect this high @$$ tax rate and force it down the consumers throats.

What a deal for the local business person trying to make a living.
