Top 500 Delinquents Taxpayers list May 2018 Tax News

We publish the Top 500 List each April and October

We published our newest list of top 500 delinquent taxpayers on April 13, which includes individuals and businesses that collectively owe the state more than $505 million in income tax.

In February, we sent letters to taxpayers scheduled to appear on the list. Of these taxpayers, 103 made arrangements to pay their tax debt. Another 324 individuals and 73 businesses did not, resulting in their inclusion on the list.

Since the list’s inception in October 2007, we collected more than $798 million from delinquent taxpayers through the program.

Delinquent taxpayers on the list face an array of consequences:

  • If they hold a professional or occupational license, that information is noted on the list and the license may be suspended until the tax bill is resolved.
  • The state may suspend the delinquent taxpayer’s driver license until the tax bill is resolved.
  • State agencies are prohibited from entering into contracts for the acquisition of goods or services with listed taxpayers.
  • We publish the names and titles of principal corporate officers of corporations on the list.

We remove a taxpayer from the list once the debt is paid or the taxpayer agrees to make payments under an approved agreement or compromise. Tax liabilities for which the persons liable have filed for bankruptcy protection are not included on the list.

Individual taxpayers on the list can call (888) 426-8555 to resolve their accounts. Business taxpayers can call (888) 426-8751.
