This Is a Solution?

Here's one way to create unemployment.

In Rhode Island:

State tax officials have put more than 1,200 businesses across the state on notice this week that they are out of business unless they pay their overdue sales taxes immediately.

[Rhode Island tax officials] said the first notice goes out in February to put businesses delinquent in paying their sales taxes on notice that their continued failure to do so “will result in your being denied a renewal of your sales tax permit and, if applicable, cigarette license effective July 1, 2009.”

Penalty? $5,000.00/day and up to a year in the slammer for operating without a license.

Sorry, "English" but I'll do the proselytizing on this blog.
