Steven Seagal, Dionne Warwick make list of biggest tax scofflaws in California

California's Franchise Tax Board announced Oct. 11, 2012 that Steven Seagal was among the top 500 people and businesses owing the most in unpaid taxes. The actor owes the state nearly $350,000 and has been on the list since April, reports The Associated Press. Getty

Two celebrities are on a notable list in California, but it's not exactly the A-list.

The state's Franchise Tax Board says singer Dionne Warwick and actor Steven Seagal are among the top 500 people and businesses owing the most in unpaid taxes. The tax board released its list Thursday.

It says Warwick, who now lives in New Jersey, owes California $2.6 million. It says she's been delinquent since 2003, but her publicist, Kevin Sasaki, says Warwick has worked out a repayment plan with the state and is paying down her debt.

Seagal is listed as  nearly $350,000 behind and has been on the list since April. Telephone messages were left with his agent and his company, Steamroller Productions, on Thursday.

Technology entrepreneur Halsey Minor, of San Rafael, owes the most to the state - $10.7 million.

Warwick and Seagal are just two celebrities who have owed hefty taxes. In June, R. Kelly made headlinesfor owing a reported $4.8 million in taxes. Earlier this year, singer Lauryn Hill was charged with failing to file income tax returns for several years with the IRS.
