Those who are late with their taxes owed to New York State may find they have lost their license to drive.

That’s part of a plan hammered out during budget negotiations last March.

The state tax department is sending out suspension notices to delinquent taxpayers. They will have 60 days to arrange a payment plan. If not, they will have another 15 days before their license is revoked until the debit is paid.

Those who lose their license may apply for a restricted version that will allow them to travel to and from work. Late taxpayers currently owe just over $1 billion to the state.
