Vacaville man, and his car dealership company owes almost two-million in
The California State Board of Equalization (BOE) said in a press release that California is owed more than $501.7 million in back taxes, including a list of the Top 500 sales and use tax delinquencies the fourth quarter of 2013.
An interactive map that display location, account name, and amount owed by delinquent taxpayers shows that two of the Top-50 delinquent account holders are from Vacaville, including Vacaville Ford Mercury Inc. at 148 Peabody Road, reportedly owing $1.8-million in back taxes dating since 2009. The second being Bryan Keith White, at the same address since 2011 for the same amount.
Legislation enacted in 2011 (AB 1424, Perea) expanded the former Top 250 list to 500, and also required the BOE to provide confidential information to participating state agencies that issue taxpayers’ occupational, professional, and driver licenses. In addition, it provided for delinquent taxpayers to be precluded from contracting with the state.
Since the inception of this program in 2007, the BOE has received $9.93 million from 117 qualifying taxpayers who came forward to pay their debts; 97 are making installment payments and 20 have paid their debt in full.
Taxpayers are notified 30-days prior to the information being released; the list is updated every quarter and accounts with payment arrangement, bankruptcy, litigation, or appeal are removed within 30-days of the change.
Of the total $501.7 million owed on the latest list, $95.8 million are jointly owed liabilities. This means individuals associated with a corporation, partnership, limited partnership, limited liability partnership, or limited liability company might be personally responsible for delinquent taxes.
