 MILWAUKEE (AP) -Hall of Fame pitcher Rollie Fingers was removed from the state's list of its largest tax delinquents.
Two of three cases filed against Fingers by the state Department of Revenue have been satisfied, according to documents filed in Dane County Circuit Court. The court does not specify how those cases were settled, including whether Fingers paid and how much he might have paid.
The state Department of Revenue had listed Roland G. Fingers of Las Vegas as one of its top 100 delinquent taxpayers in July 2006. He owed about $1.4 million in income taxes, including $1.1 million in interest, according to court records.
Fingers, a reliever once famous for his handlebar mustache, was the American League's MVP and Cy Young Award winner in 1981 with the Milwaukee Brewers.
Revenue Department spokeswoman Meredith Helgerson said she is barred from discussing any taxpayer's specific situation. She confirmed Monday that Fingers has been removed from the list but could not say how the cases were satisfied or how much Fingers paid, if anything.
The only way someone can be removed from the list is for them to agree to pay in installments, petition for a compromise or file for bankruptcy.
The third case against Fingers was for more than $58,000. Court records showed that case still pending Monday.
No lawyer for Fingers was listed and a message left at a number in Las Vegas was not immediately returned.
Fingers disputed his status as a tax delinquent in his online journal this winter, saying he had income taxes withheld from every paycheck when he played for the Brewers in the 1980s.
Fingers helped the Oakland A's win three consecutive World Series from 1972-74 and was a closer for the Brewers in 1981-82 and 1984-85. He was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1992 after a 17-year career. He is eighth in career saves with 341.
