When the California Franchise Tax Board released the annual list of the top 250 taxpayers with the highest state income tax liens, former Grand Prix Racing champion Steve Bren finished in the 18th spot. The son of billionaire Irvine Co. chairman Donald Bren, Steve and Cynthia Bren owe $2,209561.23 in personal income tax to the state of California and the state tax lien was filed on March 20, 2009. With California in a financial crush, the Franchise Tax Board is going after delinquent taxpayers with a renewed focus. By failing to contact a tax professional like the tax experts at the Tax Resolution Institute, Steve Bren allowed his private tax problem to become a public tax crisis. Now Steve Brin needs real tax relief.
