Top 100 Delinquent Tax Accounts in WisconsinPhoto: Video by nbc26.com
At the top of the listis one of the NBA's biggest bad boys, Latrell Sprewell.
In the latest chapter of his rocky financial life, Sprewell owes Wisconsin more than $3.5 million in back income taxes. But the list of delinquent taxpayers released today is mostly names you've never heard. Including James Douglas, whose last known address was this house on 67th street in Wauwatosa. Douglas owes Wisconsin more than $1.1 million in withholding, sales and income taxes. Also on the list, William Foley of Pewaukee. He owes another $1.1 million in taxes. Dilipkumar Patel is on the hook for just over a million. And tad hellmann owes the state a shade over 700 grand. We went to mr. Hellman's home on Milwaukee's east side tonight to ask him how he made the list. But he ran back inside his house when we walked up. About an hour later, he changed his mind and told us the tax bill is the result of a failed business and he's stuck to work out payments with the state.
"They're from 1994 and from a business I didn't even own. I got hung with them as an employee. Do you know I work with the WDR every month on it and I'm coming to a resolution?"
