In 1978 I left CA broke and owing $400. in state taxes. do I still owe ?
must return to CA and need to know.
Yes you do! California is broke and will take action to get what is owed! I'm surprised they haven't tried to contact you long ago.
yes plus fines, penalties and late fees also.
It's not $400 any more Toto!!!! You're probably up to FOUR GRAND now
California has probably forgiven you of your tax liability after all these years.
