California Posts Sales Tax Cheats List


Is public shaming an effective revenue source? The State of California seems to think so.

California state law mandates that the State Controller post a list every quarter of the biggest sales tax cheats in the state. Today, State Controller John Chiang posted the latest release. Who made the list?

This quarter's Top Ten list is headed once again by Downey-based California Target Enterprises, which owes $18.3 million. Closer to the Capitol, the Lyon's at 30th and J in Sacramento placed 14th, owing the state about $4.1 million. That's a lot of burgers. Management at the restaurant has said the store is no longer affiliated with the company which owes the state. SacBee.com
