A Springfield business owner faces charges after he allegedly failed to file Ohio sales tax return earlier this year, according to court records.
Alan Tackett, 51, was scheduled to appear in court on Thursday morning.
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.
If a business is placed on the habitual offender’s program and fails to file sales tax returns for two consecutive months, they are subject to suspension, officers said in court records.
The vendor’s license suspension was expected to be lifted after sales tax filing and payment requirements have been satisfied, records said.
