Illinois Department of Revenue charges elderly couple $244.24 in back taxes for using "1,134.6 gallons of vegetable oil from 2002 to 2006."
And he's not allowed to make his own vegetable fuel oil until he pays a $2,500.00 bond to obtain a "special fuel supplier", even though the state's website defines a "special fuel supplier" as storing not less than 30,000 gallons. If he continues to make his own fuel without obtaining this license, he could be charged with a felony!
This threatening letter stated that acting as a supplier and receiver without a license is a Class 3 felony. This class of felonies carries a penalty of up to five years in prison.
