The California Franchise Tax Board issued Thursday a list of the "Top 500 Delinquent Taxpayers."
The delinquent taxpayers—which includes Barbara L. and Jeffrey E. Lubin with $321,834 in back taxes and Timoth I. Mathues with $305,215 in back taxes—face a number of new consequences including:
- Publishing the names and titles of corporate officers of listed corporations.
- Publishing professional license information
- Authorizing FTB to enter into reciprocal agreements with other states to offset refunds and collect tax debt
- Prohibiting state agencies from entering into contracts with the Top 500
The FTB began issuing the list of top offenders in 2007 and has collected nearly $177 million, according to a press release. However, the list excludes tax liabilities under appeal, in litigation, or in bankruptcy proceedings. The list will be updated again in April.
