California Tax Relief: Franchise Tax Board Collections
If you live or work in California, you may be taxed by two separate taxing entities: the IRS and California’s Franchise Tax Board (FTB). Because they are separate, they each enforce different tax laws. Tax problems normally begin during an assessment of a California state tax by the FTB, also known as the California Board of Equalization. During the collections process, possible actions that can be taken include asset seizure to satisfy the debt by the State of California, Garnishment placement on wages to ensure payments, Loss of state-issued license (contractor’s license, driver’s license, license to practice law & medical license), Frozen bank account. Clearly, the FTB means business and will go to extremes if you don’t pay your tax bill.
