State officials say one person and one couple from Elk Grove owe California hundreds of thousands of dollars in back taxes, and made the list of the state's top 500 delinquent taxpayers released Thursday.
According to the Franchise Tax Board, George T. Faison owes $444,370, while Satvinder and Josephine Sandhu owe $711,510.
"Taxpayers on the Top 500 list will be removed once the tax is paid or the taxpayer agrees to resolve their tax debt," the state's Franchise Tax Board said in a press release. The list doesn't include tax debts that are being appealed, litigated or in bankruptcy proceedings.
The state is getting tougher on tax debtors, and now may revoke state-issued licenses for people who owe. The Elk Grove residents on the list do hold state-issued licenses.
