      Unhappy Hour

      LITTLE ROCK (KATV) -

      The Pulaski County Treasurer is preparing to hit 50 businesses where it hurts: the bottom line.

      All of those businesses are delinquent in paying their property and real estate taxes. And all of those businesses have a liquor license. for now.

      Last year Treasurer Debra Buckner says 100 percent of the businesses she swung this big stick at paid up.

      She hopes for the same results this year.

      The last time we visited the Pulaski County Treasurer's office it was during the closing days before the deadline to pay real estate and personal property taxes.

      So how did the county do?

      "93 percent of the citizens paid on time," says County Treasurer Debra Buckner. "And there's that seven percent that didn't quite make it. So...we're revisiting all those people to remind them that they missed the deadline."

      There are 50 delinquent businesses in the county that have a liquor license.

      Some owe a few hundred...others owe a few thousand.

      Those 50 will be getting a reminder from both the treasurer and the Alcohol Beverage Control Board.

      "The ABC actually has the authority to pull their liquor license," says Buckner. "And they're willing to do that. So we work in partnership with them."

      If it seems unfair that the tax collector has an extra weapon to use against select businesses....just remember....there is a weapon that can be used against you too.

      "Personal...if Jason Pederson doesn't pay for his car taxes then what we do is block his ability next year to renew his car tag," says Buckner.

      I'm all paid up. But don't take my word for it...you can check the list in Thursday's Democrat-Gazette. All the businesses and people who missed the October 15th tax deadline are listed in the local paper. It costs Pulaski County over $100,000 to publish this list...but it has no choice. State law requires it.

      The hope is the public exposure will lead to more money in the public coffers.

      Here is the list of Pulaski County businesses with liquor licenses:
