If you cannot pay your state tax, you cannot drive.
This is reality in California.
On October 4 2011, California Governor Jerry Brown signed a bill requiring the California’s motor vehicle department to suspend the driver’s licenses of its worst tax delinquents. The new law expands an existing program by doubling the number of names on the published lists and adding the driver license suspensions.
Suspended Driver License
The suspensions of driver licenses will affect the state’s top 1,000 tax debtors. This legislation targets Hollywood celebrities, IT millionaires, athletes, doctors, lawyers, major builders and hundreds of others. Among them Halsey Minor, founder of CNET, and former Baywatch star Pamela Anderson.
It’s time that the worst tax debtors in our state know we mean business, says Henry T. Perea of Fresno.
