California's largest sales tax delinquencies for fourth quarter 2010
Submitted By Anita Gore
The State Board of Equalization (BOE) has updated the list of California's largest unpaid sales and use tax delinquencies at www.boe.ca.gov. The BOE replaced 22 names on its list of debtors who, between them, owe $72M in sales tax.
Since January 1, 2007, the BOE has been mandated to post online a list of the largest 250 tax delinquencies greater than $100,000 after giving the debtors 30 days' notice their tax liabilities will be made public. Vice Chair Jerome Horton authored the legislation (AB 1418, 2006) requiring the BOE to publish the data online while a State Assemblyman.
Since the program's inception, 31 qualifying taxpayers, whose combined sales and use tax liabilities total $31.4M, have voluntarily taken care of their debts. Of the $31.4M in liabilities, $4.1M has been collected to date. The arrears are being addressed in various ways - 21 through installment payment agreements and 10 have paid in full. The list, updated quarterly, now includes debtors with aggregate tax liabilities of $393M. Of that, $83M of delinquencies are jointly owed by more than one taxpayer on the list. Tax liabilities under appeal, litigation or bankruptcy proceedings are excluded.
