Two Middletown companies, specializing in carpet contracting and concrete construction, are among the top 100 state business delinquent taxpayers.
Commercial Concrete LLC of Newfield Street owes $312,062.13 in withholding and Carpet Pro LLC of Ten Acre Road owes sales and use taxes of $136,926.05.
Connecticut's Top 100 delinquent business taxpayer accounts as of Jan. 1, 2013, are listed on the Department of Revenue Services website. Businesses with asterisks next have been listed on a delinquent list previously, according to the website.
In 2012, 1397 Newfield St., owed the state $320,651,73 in withholding and Carpet Pro LLC, 58 Ten Acre Road, owed sales and use tax of $128,749.64.
In all, $23,079,135.19 is owed to the state of Connecticut. The list will be updated in April 2013.
Doug Cartelli is chief executive officer of CCNE, a 17-year-old nationwide business, whose website says CCNE specializes in parking garages, filigree, postension and high rise concrete construction.
Rick and Kathleen Lundell are listed owners of the carpet outfit, which also lists an address on Shunpike Road in Cromwell. Customer reviews on Insider Pages from 2008-2009 offer details and complaints about the couple's work.
Sales and use are the state taxes retailers add to the cost of their products. Retailers under state law must collect the tax at the point of sale and pass it on to the state. Income tax withheld from employees' wages and paid directly to the government by the employer is withholding.
Those who fail to do so can find themselves on the revenue services department’s list of the top 100 tax delinquents.
