That is discusting the taxing agency and state would resort to threatening Gastapo tactics. Maybe "Tom" is now unemployed because of the state running business out of it due to high taxes and cannot afford to pay them.

This isn't the first time that a state or city has offered a "discount" from interest or penalties for those who pay up. Doesn't matter if it's a dude who works a lot on the barter market or skips out paying their business taxes. In the aggregate these folks represent a drop in city/state revenues (with attending cut in services) or an increase in other's taxes.

That is true, but in the past other states, etc. have used different methods to encourage people to pay back taxes. Usually they are much easier tactics than zeroing in by saying "we know where you live" type of intimadation.

They've been using the same tactics for TV licencing and car tax in the UK, though not quite as extreme as this.

You miss the point. It's the attitude that is disgusting. The whole idea of government as a public service seems to go out the window these days. "Nice Car... Pay up!"

While I agree with the message that those who owe need to pay up, the presentation is awful and downright scary.

Agreed. The message is OK, but the delivery is awful.
