Soquel, Aptos Taxpayers Among California's Top Delinquents

The just-released Franchise Tax Board list shows Mid-County taxpayers owe the state more than $1.3 million.

Taxpayers from Soquel and Aptos are among 500 of the state's top tax delinquents, according to information provided by the Franchise Tax Board and released on Thursday.

The FTB says Soquel resident Kimball W Small, a licensed real estate agent, owes the state $430,172.43 in unpaid personal income taxes. In Aptos, Michael Ronald Jacque, and Brenda L Subia, CEO and CFO, respectively, of Alpine Recreation Sales & Rentals, owe $893,683.24. 

In total, delinquent taxpayers owe California $224,012,696.71. The total owed by Santa Cruz County residents is $1,323,855.67

The leading delinquent taxpayers in the state are in the San Francisco Bay Area. The FTB data indicates Halsey M. & Shannon Minor, who list their residence in San Ramon, owe personal taxes of more than $10.7 million.

The Franchise Tax Board releases a Top 500 Delinquent Taxpayer List twice each year. The delinquencies must total in excess of $100,000 and be subject to a recorded notice of state tax lien. The list includes the taxpayer’s name and address, according to the FTB.

Nearly 90 percent of taxpayers pay the taxes they owe, according to the FTB. Those who don’t pay contribute to California’s tax gap - the difference between taxes owed to the state and taxes actually paid. That gap currently sits at an estimated $10 billion.

More than $177 million has been collected from the list since it was first posted in October 2007.

According to the FTB, taxpayers on the Top 500 list will be removed once the tax is paid or the taxpayer agrees to make payments under an approved installment agreement or offer in compromise.

Tax liabilities under appeal, in litigation, or in bankruptcy proceedings are not included on the list.

@Cathy P. - I would love it if the Franchise Tax Board's "Top 500 LIst" indicated each delinquent's political party. I would bet they are overwhelmingly Republican.

There's a Watsonville woman on the list also — Claudia Shargel had a lien of $258,522.71 filed against her in 2009.

Regardless of party affiliations I sure wish I made as much income as these people paid in taxes. I would not have any problems at all paying my share of taxes and even more. Earning half as much as these relatively wealthy people pay in taxes sounds really good. I'm sure my tax rates were higher than most of theirs. What excuse could such wealthy people have for not paying their taxes or working out a deal with the State Franchise Board or Treasury? If I must pay my taxes so should they. Money is needed to pay down the debts and run the governments. Even Republicans do not advocate paying no taxes. They need money to further fund the military, etc.

Too true Frank!

Why haven't they been arrested?

Hey, I see Steven Seagal and Dionne Warwick made the Deadbeat List!!

I guess if your income is over 100K year, you become exempt from prosecution for tax evasion. The rest of us are supposed to support all of it so these deadbeats don't need to.

Franchise Tax Board (FTB) of California is not an exception. Many states have a long list of delinquent taxpayers. I would not say that enforced collection procedure of FTB is somewhat different from all other states. It is just a matter of time, but all liable taxpayers go through the same process: liens, bank levies, seizure of property, wage garnishment, etc. There are ways to avoid these problems. It is possible to discuss a manageable repayment plan with FTB. If your debt is less than $10,000, you might actually save some money by doing it yourself. However, taxpayers that have higher liabilities might benefit by hiring a tax resolution company. Here are some examples of what can be done to settle your tax debt with the state of California: http://www.2020taxdebthelp.com/tax-resolution-state-CA.php.
