Deadbeat list

Here's a good reason - because it's a matter of public record that anyone can obtain.

Towns that routinely publish the pictures of men arrested in prostitution stings see a substantial decrease in the number of men seeking out services.

Public exposure still works, because there are still a FEW people out here who can be shamed or embarrassed, and change their behavior. If only ten percent of that list scrapes together enough money to pay their past taxes, it will have been a wise investment.

Meanwhile the rest of us who do pay our taxes can use it as a local credit list before we check with a credit agency. If your name is on the list, I don't have to waste time calling Equifax to decide if I'll do business with you: I won't.
