Flint telling people who haven't paid their city income tax: Pay Up Now

The city of Flint is hoping to collect some unpaid city income taxes. The money could help reduce Flint’s crushing budget deficit.

The city of Flint is struggling to reduce its $19 million budget deficit.

To chip away at part of that, city officials plan to pressure people who haven’t paid their city income taxes for a while.

The city estimates that it’s owed between $300,000 and $400,000 in unpaid income taxes for just 2010.

The city is sending notices to nearly nine thousand people, informing them they have 30 days to pay their past due taxes or the city will start collection proceedings.

Meanwhile, the city of Flint is still waiting on the state to approve its deficit reduction plan.
