    Apparently Burt Reynolds is cannonball-running away from the tax man.

    He is joined by usual suspects Dionne Warwick and Sinbad on the annual rundown of California's most delinquent taxpayers.

    Per the California Franchise Tax Board, Sinbad is the worst offender among the celebs. The Jingle All the Way star, who's listed as Sinbad Adkins of Oak Park, Ill., owes $2.5 million in back income taxes dating to 1999. His rep did not immediately comment on the report.

    Warwick, a resident of South Orange, N.J., owes $2.1 million to the state of California. Spokesman Kevin Sasaki tells E! News that she is "cooperating" with the tax board and that a payment plan is "already in motion." Indeed, the Grammy winner's bill is down from the $2.7 million she had due two years ago.

    Reynolds, meanwhile, owes a relatively paltry $225,000. His camp was mum on his tax-delinquent status.

    The state taxing types seem to have given up hope on collecting from one of their most notorious dodgers. O.J. Simpson had been a fixture on the annual list, with more than $1.5 million in unpaid taxes, but his name has been removed now that he's serving a 33-year prison sentence for his Las Vegas robbery.
