Okay, sometimes the IRS can get a little push about getting your tax money. And they have been known for sending people to jail for not paying their taxes. But that is generally people like Richard Hatch, of Survivor, who owed lots and tried to scam the IRS.
According to an article in the Daily Mail (UK). A British senior citizen has had her local taxes go up 50% in the last 10 years and refuses to pay the 53.71 pounds (that works out to $94.90 in US dollars) she owes. So they sent her to jail for 7 days. The article shows on what fluff the money is being spent. I though Kansas was getting pushy figuring taxes for people based on high average incomes but even they never sent a little old lady to jail for less than $100.
