California’s Franchise Tax Board (the “FTB”) published its newest Top 500 Delinquent Taxpayer’s list today. This year, individuals made the list if their amount due exceeded approximately $230,000. The FTB is required to post this information twice annually and taxpayers can be removed from the list as they resolve their tax disputes.
