Two Los Gatos entities have ended up on the naughty list issued quarterly by the California Board of Equalization owing the government close to $1 million combined in delinquent use and sales taxes.
- Noelle Austin, 205 Forrester Rd., first lien issued July 8, 2004, owes $491,415.77
- Los Gatos Chevrolet, LLC, 15600 Los Gatos Blvd., first lien issued June 11, 2009, owes $454,221.14
The agency is required by law to post the information every quarter, removing amounts that are being addressed through payment arrangement, bankruptcy, litigation, or appeal.
Each taxpayer is notified 30 days before their information is posted.
Since 2007, the agency has received $9.93 million from 117 qualifying taxpayers who came to pay their debts: 97 through installment payment agreements and 20 have paid their debt in full, the BOE said in a news release.
Taxpayers can request that any full or partial payments be posted on the list.
If taxpayers' information has been posted in error, or they have questions about the list, they're urged to call the BOE at 916-323-8624.Sign up for the free Los Gatos Patch newsletter | Like Los Gatos Patch on Facebook | Follow @GatosPatch on Twitter | Blog on Los Gatos Patch | Follow Los Gatos Patch on Instagram
