Blac Chyna Lash Business Suspended Over Failure To File Tax Return
Bad news in Blac Chyna land… The Blast recently confirmed that Lashed, LLC was suspended by the Franchise Tax Board on November 1, 2018. That’s Blac Chyna’s cosmetics company for those who are unaware. California-based businesses can be suspended by either the Secretary of State’s office or the FTB for a handful of different reasons, a spokesperson for the tax board tells the Blast they suspended Lashed for its “failure to file a tax return.”
Due to the suspension, Chyna’s business has now lost to conduct business and she’ll also be put in the position where she’s unable to sue on behalf of or defend Lashed in court, file a claim for refund, legally close or dissolve the business. According to the FTB, the California agency responsible for collecting and enforcing personal and corporate income taxes, suspended companies are also subject to a $2,000 penalty.
But we probably shouldn’t feel too bad because these repercussions follow a failure to respond to over two months-worth of notices.
Since launching Lashed in late 2014, Chyna’s beauty biz has sold cosmetics, including lashes and lipsticks, both online at LashedCosmetics.com as well as her actual Encino store, where services like eyelash extensions, waxing and teeth whitening were offered. While the suspension won’t affect Lashed customers ability to make purchases online her Ventura Blvd based brick and mortar has been looking mighty empty.
Chyna held a grand re-opening back in September but a neighboring business owner told The Blast they haven’t seen her back since. Meanwhile, to add insult to injury, Kylie Jenner filed to trademark the term “KYLASH,” for the purposes of artificial eyelashes, eyelash tint.
You already know Kylie’s a beast at the beauty biz, so this could be a big area of expansion for her.
Blac Chyna might want to get things right with the taxman quickly because businesses lose the right to use their name when they’re suspended, which means another enterprising Californian could come in and stake their claim.
