Answer will follow in the pane below as per above parameters….
If you previously complied with all corporate formalities and simply decided to walk away from the business, leaving the corporation's franchise taxes unpaid, there should be no personal liability arising from those obligations. This happens all the time. However, if you continue the corporation's business in this state of affairs, then you are inviting what is known as "successor liability" for the corporation's obligations.
