FTB to Mail Public Disclosure of Tax Delinquency Letters

February 21, 2017

Purpose of Bulletin

California R&TC §19195 requires us to publicly disclose the names, addresses, and amounts due of the top 500 delinquent PIT and BE taxpayers who owe over $100,000 subject to a recorded notice of state tax lien. We are also required to include occupational or professional license information, including license number and status, and the names of principal officers and their titles. This list is updated and published bi-annually.

Taxpayers appearing on our list are subject to having their occupational, professional, and driver licenses suspended by the issuing agencies. In addition, California state agencies are precluded from entering into contracts for the acquisition of goods or services with taxpayers on the list.
