Sales and Use Tax Delinquents

Orange County – The California State Board of Equalization has added 256 names to the list of biggest sales and use tax delinquents, totaling $555.7 million, 24 of them from Orange County.

Jerome E. Horton, chairman of the BOE, authored a law in 2007 requiring the board to post online the 250 largest tax delinquencies of more than $100,000 and updating this list quarterly. Last year the legislature passed a law doubling the size of the list effective January 1.

As of July 1, state agencies issuing licenses, including driver licenses and occupational licenses, are required to suspend, revoke and refuse to issue a license to anyone on this top 500 delinquency list.
