(3) Each list may contain the name and address of each delinquent taxpayer, the type of tax levied, and the amount of the delinquency, including interest and penalty, as of the end of the quarter. No taxpayer shall be included on such list if the tax assessment in question is the subject of an appeal.

Said notice shall be sent to the taxpayer's last known address by regular and certified mail. If during said thirty (30) day period the taxpayer makes satisfactory arrangement for payment of the delinquent tax, the name of such taxpayer shall not be published as long as the taxpayer does not default on any payment agreement entered into with the division of taxation.
(c) Any such list prepared by the tax division shall be
available to the public for inspection by any person and may be published by
the tax administrator on the tax division website.
