Philly Getting Tough On Taxes, Says Yuengling Owes More Than $6 Million

Posted: Updated:
PHILADELPHIA -

Mayor Michael Nutter wants tax deadbeats to pay up. On Monday, he announced a five-year, $40-million plan to chase down tax delinquents.

According to Philly.com, this includes an overhaul of the department of revenue's 20-year-old software and a new call center.

One tax delinquent the city is going after is Yuengling Brewery. A new lawsuit claims America's oldest brewery failed to pay more than $6 million in city taxes, interest and penalty fees.

The suit does not say what activities the Pottsville-based company did within Philadelphia that the city determined to be taxable.
