Ashton woman ordered to file income tax returns

BOISE, IDAHO — May 2, 2011 — Seventh district judge Gregory Moeller has ordered an Ashton, Idaho woman to file tax returns for two years in which her reported income totaled almost $94,000, according to the Idaho State Tax Commission.

Judge Moeller issued an order to compel Tamra M. Cikaitoga to file tax returns for 2008 and 2009. Cikaitoga has until June 9 to comply with the judge’s order.

“Taking people to court isn’t something we do lightly,” said Tax Commissioner David Langhorst. “When we do go to the expense of court action, it’s because all other attempts have failed to get these people to file their tax returns.”

And, he added, “It’s only fair to the vast majority of Idaho taxpayers who file their returns as the law requires.”

Court files show that Cikaitoga had income of $48,204 in 2008 and $45,663 in 2009.

The Tax Commission is being represented in this case by Deputy Attorney General Phil Skinner.
