Paul Egan of the Detroit News reports: Former University of Michigan and NBA basketball player Robert “Tractor” Traylor has paid only a fraction of the $178,000 he owes the Internal Revenue Service, nearly two years after he was sentenced in federal court for a felony tax conviction. Now, Traylor has been summoned to appear before U.S. District Judge Avern Cohn on Sept. 14 after the probation department complained his failure to pay or work out a written payment plan violates the terms of his probation, according to federal court records filed Wednesday. Traylor also has not filed his 2008 income tax returns, as required, U.S. Probation Officer Shawn McElroy wrote in a report.
