Thank you for using JustAnswer. I am JudgeLaw and I will do whatever I can to answer your question and provide you excellent service.

Before we begin, a bit more detail would be helpful please.

What is the origin of the debt?

How old is the debt?

Thank you.

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

State of Colorado Dept. of Revenue.

Tax year 2011

What is the debt for? Is it payroll taxes?

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Taxes for the LLC we had no employees. So business tax I guess.

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Corporate income tax is what is on the letter from the State of Colorado.

Thank you for the additional information.

Typically, you would not have personal liability for annual franchise taxes for the LLC. The Department of Revenue could only look to LLC assets for payment of that debt.

There is an exception for payroll taxes at a federal level when you do not have a corporate tax election, but I do not get the impression that is applicable here.
