Florida Tax Lien Problems and Help
A Florida tax lien or warrant is a state issued request to levy on and possibly sell or auction personal property owned by a taxpayer that has failed to pay taxes that have been assessed by the Florida Department of Revenue.
Notice of Collection from Florida
A Notice of Collection from Florida means that an assessment against you has become final and is collectible like a judgement. The state has broad but clearly defined powers to levy assets. A Florida tax lien must have been filed, for example. If the taxes assessed go unpaid, the Florida Department of Revenue may pursue one or more of the following collection options:
- Garnish or Attach wages, salary or bank deposits.
- Issue a Tax Warrant, which directs and enables the sheriff or other employee of the Florida Department of Revenue to levy and sell your property.
It is advisable that you seek immediate professional advice regarding your rights and options. An ounce of prevention is indeed worth a pound of cure when it comes to enforced tax collections.
If you have a past due balance, the Florida Department of Revenue may do any of the following:
- Freeze and Attach your bank account to pay taxes due.
- Attach and garnish 100% of any payments due or received as a result of the contract, as well as any commissions.
