The state of California is calling people out for not paying their taxes, and a recently released listing includes 24 San Diego County residents and businesses.

The state's Board of Equalization (BOE) released its quarterly top 500 delinquent taxpayers, and the 24 county residents and businesses on the list owe more than $22 million combined.

However, that's just a drop in the bucket compared to the rest of the top 500 list, which owe $449,144,095.

The BOE hopes by shaming the tax scofflaws, they might be able to get some of them to pay up.

Among the San Diego County businesses that made the list, 21st Century Oil Company of Solana Beach had the highest delinquent amount $3,310,718. Wellington, Inc., which owned the now-shuttered Jack's of La Jolla restaurant, owes the state $1,271,282.
