Top 250 Tax Debtors List Updated

We updated our California’s 250 largest unpaid state income tax delinquencies list.

State law requires us to post an annual list of the 250 largest state income tax debtors who owe more than $100,000. Earlier this year, we began mailing letters to individuals and businesses who met the criteria to be listed. So far this year, we collected more than $13 million in payments from taxpayers seeking to prevent their names from being publicly posted on this list. We collected more than $78 million since the list was first posted in October 2007.

We will remove taxpayers on the Top 250 list once they paid the tax or agree to pay under an approved installment agreement. Tax liabilities under appeal, in litigation, in bankruptcy proceedings, or under consideration for an offer in compromise are not included on the list.

Individual taxpayers on the list can contact us at 866.418.3702 to resolve their accounts. Business taxpayers can call 866.914.5594.

The top state income tax delinquencies list is updated annually at ftb.ca.gov. The Board of Equalization has a similar list of the state’s top sales and use tax delinquencies, which is updated quarterly.
