Joy Krawczyk, with the Department of Revenue, says they've exhausted all other options. "There are people that we’ve tried to work with and collect from in the past, and we haven’t had success in resolving that debt." She says the list represents millions of dollars in unpaid debt.
More than 30 states post names of past-due taxpayers, and have been successful in getting people to pay up.
