Public Disclosure of Tax Delinquency Letters

Purpose of bulletin

To inform staff we will mail 500 Notice of Public Disclosure of Tax Delinquency letters on August 24, 2012. We will send letters to the top 500 delinquent personal and business entity taxpayers with a tax delinquency over $100,000. We will publish this information on our public website during the week of October 22, 2012.

Background

California Revenue and Taxation Code Section 19195 authorizes us to publicly disclose the names, addresses, and secured amounts owed for the top 500 delinquent PIT and BE taxpayers who owe over $100,000.

The list is updated bi-annually and includes the status of any occupational or professional licenses, and the names and titles of principal officers of corporations.

In addition, on or after July 1, 2012, a taxpayer’s inclusion on this list may:

  • Cause the loss or denial of occupational and professional licenses, including the taxpayer’s driver license, under Business and Professions Code Section 494.5.
  • Preclude them from entering into contracts for the acquisition of goods and services with California state agencies under Public Contract Code 10295.4
