Three Temecula Businesses Listed Among State's Worst Tax Offenders

Some local businesses were named on the state's latest list of the "top 500 sales and use tax delinquencies," released Tuesday.

Some Temecula businesses are in hot water with the state, which has resorted to publicly listing their names in a database of the worst tax offenders.

On Tuesday, the California State Board of Equalization updated its online list of the Top 500 sales and use tax delinquencies-- a list which totals $514.9 million in taxes through the first quarter of 2014.

According to the BOE, these businesses are notified 30 days before their information is posted.  The agency does not name those who are working on a payment arrangement of some sort, or are in bankruptcy, litigation, or appeal phases.

"Since the inception of this program in 2007, the BOE has received $10.21 million from 121 qualifying taxpayers who came forward to pay their debts; 100 are making installment payments, and 21 have paid their debt in full," a press release from the BOE said Tuesday.

Of the hundreds of millions of dollars owed to California, $114.3 million are jointly owed liabilities.

"This means individuals associated with a corporation, partnership, limited partnership, limited liability partnership, or limited liability company might be personally responsible for delinquent taxes," the BOE said.

This quarter alone, 44 taxpayers were added to the state's delinquent list.  Together, they owe $41.4 million.

Making the list from Temecula are two businesses which deal with Recreational Vehicles, and a Mexican food establishment.

Owing the most is DSRVs, Incorporated, which does business as RV Supercenter, located at 27941 Jefferson Avenue.   According to the BOE, the place owes $884,983.92.

The second highest tax bill is at Duke Foods, Inc, which does business as Vincenteos Mexican Food, located at 31940 Temecula Parkway, #C-4.   They apparently owe  $677,181.81.

Temecula Valley RV, LLC, which does business as Jan Weilert RV, owes the state $607,184.52, according to the BOE.  They are located at 27941 Jefferson Avenue.  *Please note, this is NOT the same Temecula Valley RV in Murrieta.

Don't you think people would pay if they could? Taxes on business are to high for them to meet all their other costs. Once you get caught in this IRS loop and the add all their fees and penalties there is no where to go.....But it is a sign these businesses will be closing soon :(

BTW, aten't you guys the ones who have discounted RV rental rates for veterans? If so, thank you very much for your service to our veteran community.

Since the average cost of tax preparation is nearly $240.00, it's no wonder that individuals and small business are handcuffed. If there's one common thread in politics it's an inability to rectify a broken and weighted tax system. And it's not likely to change; because these same interests and entities are major player's in the super PACS that finance today's multi million dollar election campaigns. Elect the same people who refuse to correct the problem with existing tax complexity and the real problem will not go away. This level of evasion is nothing compared to the money that is hidden in the magicians hat, in countries like Bermuda, Cayman Islands, Switzerland, and Luxenburg, among others. Just waiting for some front man to grant amnesty to all money holding outside of the U.S. Politicians are all dishonest and should be held accountable.
