Why did you owe the State of Michigan money? Was it for taxes? Driver Responsibility fees? something else?
Is the bank account in your name only?
Thanks for the information.
A NOTICE OF LEVY OR WAGE GARNISHMENT. This is done when the tax payment is not voluntarily made. This means the State of Michigan is taking your property, money or wages. In these cases, immediate action is needed to put a stop to these Collection Actions and get the Tax Problem Solved. If nothing is done, the State will keep taking what it can to satisfy what it claims is owed.
Your bank account can be frozen up to the amount of the levy. You can challenge the Levy, but if unsuccessful, the funds are automatically given to the Department of Treasury. Once the money is given to the Department of Treasury, it is almost impossible to get it back.
You NEED TO SEEK THE ASSISTANCE OF A TAX ATTORNEY ASAP!!! The tax attorney may be able to stop the State in its tracks and challenge the levy. Further, the attorney may be able to work out payment arrangements and try to reduce interest and penalties. But....you need to get to an attorney and act FAST.
