California has released its list of Top 500 Sales and Use Tax Delinquencies. Making the list of shame is Stephen Field, Inc., dba General Appliance and Kitchens, 1333 Howard Avenue in Burlingame. The business owes $630,093 dating back to a first lien in April 2008.
According to the California Board of Equalization (BOE), businesses and individuals are notified before being placed on the list that they will be named publicly. Also, tax delinquents are not named “that are being addressed through payment arrangement, bankruptcy, litigation, or appeal.”
An unpaid tax bill has to top $100K before being added to the list.
The largest unpaid tax bill, $7.9 million, is in Los Angeles.
