Hawaii collects more than $100M in unpaid taxes

HONOLULU (AP) - The Hawaii Department of Taxation says it has collected more than $100 million in taxes owed to the state through a delinquent tax collection program.

The department applied computerized tracking technology to a database of businesses and individual tax filing records to identify companies and people who failed to file some or all of their required tax returns.

It carried out the program through a contract with CGI Technologies and Solutions.

The department said Wednesday it expects it will collect more than $120 million through the program by the time its contract with CGI ends next June.
