Officers from the Ohio Department of Taxation Criminal Investigations Division visited Tackett at his business, Preferred Car Care, 2406 E. Main St., on May 5 to tell him his vendors license is suspended. The officers told Tackett he could no longer operate because of an alleged failure to file state sales taxes and remit sales tax liability collected for September 2016 through March of 2017, according to court records.

Tackett told officers he was on a payment plan with the Ohio Attorney General’s Office and thought his accountant was taking care of the sales taxes.
