FTB to Mail Public Disclosure of Tax Delinquency Letters

Purpose of Bulletin

To inform staff on August 23, 2013, we will mail Notice of Public Disclosure of Tax Delinquency letters to the top delinquent personal income tax (PIT) and business entity (BE) taxpayers who owe over $100,000. We intend to publish the information on our public website the week of October 7, 2013.

Background

California Revenue and Taxation Code Section 19195 requires us to publicly disclose the names, addresses, and amounts due of the top 500 delinquent PIT and BE taxpayers who owe over $100,000 where the amount due is subject to a recorded notice of state tax lien. We are also required to include occupational or professional license information, including license number and status, and the names of principal officers and their titles. This list is updated and published bi-annually.

Taxpayers appearing on our list are subject to having their occupational, professional, and drivers’ licenses suspended by the issuing agencies. In addition, California state agencies are prohibited from entering into contracts for the acquisition of goods or services with taxpayers on the list.

Additional Information

Only PIT and BE assigned collectors work these accounts. The accounts can be identified in the We Have window of ARCS with one of the following comments:

  • 2013 TOP500 Lt3
  • 2013 TOP500 Lt4
  • 2013 TOP500 LtBE3
  • 2013 TOP500 LtBE4
