(UP!) - Illinois Revenue Director Robert Allphin, armed with new legal authority, is preparing to "go gung-ho" in forcible'col- lection of overdue sales 'taxes from deadbeat merchants. < Th'e new authority/which Allphin essentially sneaked through the legislature; empowers the department for the first time to seize on its own authority personal property belonging to merchants who owe back sales taxes!
