After Doing Business With Wai-Wize, County and City Have to Sue Over Owed Back Taxes

From the Wai-Wize site: "WAI-WIZE is currently providing services in conjunction with Applied Technologies to design turnkey facilities for the new City of Dallas Convention Center Hotel."
Speaking of Wai-Wize ...

As Jim points out, between Brett Shipp and yesterday's News, there's plenty out there right now concerning the amount of money Willis Johnson, Duke Hamilton and the Wai-Wize-men have made off the city of Dallas, Dallas County and Dallas Area Rapid Transit, among other government entities with whom they do business. But there's one thing I haven't seen mentioned: Wai-Wize owes all of them, and more, in unpaid taxes for 2009. Granted, it's not a whole lot -- a little more than $11,000, including penalty and interest, at least since December. Still. That just seems a touch ... ungrateful.

The breakdown follows in court documents we got this morning from the George Allen, since tax court filings aren't available online. Wai-Wize owes the city the most money: $6,293.34, including P&I. The Parkland Hospital District comes in second at $2,305.62, followed by Dallas County at $1,919.39.

One thing to note: The suit was filed in December -- by Linebarger Goggan Blair & Sampson's Sheila Fuqua Carter, for whom messages have been left -- but wasn't handed to Hamilton till last month. Why the delay? Because the county constable charged with serving the suit went to 10375 Brockwood, which is just around the corner from Wai-Wize's actual HQ at 10440 Markison Road. (That's the old address that was on file with the Secretary of State. They just shoulda looked for the satellites!) Says his notes: "Office space was vacant." Jeez. Collin County wound up having one of its constables serve Hamilton, who I've also tried to reach, at his Plano home on July 7 at 6:40 p.m., at a cost of $55. Dallas County Et Al v Wai-Wize

bob w. i love you man. first heard you on the ticket. honesty and integrity hard to find these days. stay on this story, please. seems that perot jr. has his hands a little dirty too, maybe all the the way back to victory plaza. not a great fan of laura miller, but maybe she knew more about the dirty deeds to get the aac built along with the phantom development projects to bilk the taxpayer outta millions. could be the reason that jerryworld went elsewhere. seems like alot of stuff downtown has finally bubbled to the surface. wait and see i guess

County sued me for $1,192.00 you do know County collects for City so that's another tool of almighty Price.Hold the ones he wants  and sue and served the ones he want to harassed.

They must have owed you at least that in unpaid overtime.

What's really going on here? I can't imagine City, County, et al going after someone for a paltry $11k. Surely there are bigger fish to fry.

$11,000 may be paltry to you, but that would pay for a few things in Dallas.....

replay will you make an unsecured "paltry" loan to me for $11,000?

Fry all the fish, big and small.

No one would let me ignore an $11K tax bill.

So what:  now we let people do whatever they want if someone deems it "paltry"?

first off, why did they use human labor, and not just send the bill through radioactive signals that only Wai-Wize satillites can understand? Surely the bill woulda been "transmitted" faster.Second, what's the likelihood of any of this being paid off now that the DOW has dropped 600 pts this afternoon? I need...water.

I wonder if they've paid their business franchise taxes? I mean if you gross over $1 million (gross, not net) you are subject to the tax.
