Unpaid Sales And Use Taxes In California Is A Serious Tax Problem

The Los Angeles Times ran an article on September 27, 2010 which discussed delinquent sales taxes in California owed to the State Board of Equalization.

The article said that the total of uncollected sales- and use-tax revenue – including unpaid penalties and interest – stood at $1.4 billion as of June 30, according to the Board of Equalization figures obtained by The Times. Much of that money was paid by consumers but not turned over to the state by retailers, although it also includes some transactions in which the debt is in dispute.

About a third of the largest defaults come from auto dealers and related businesses, according to a Times review of state records.
