Hello friend. My name is XXXXX XXXXX welcome to JustAnswer. Please note: (1) this is general information only, not legal advice, and, (2) there may be a slight delay between your follow ups and my reply.
I am very sorry for your situation.
The Florida's Department of Revenue
(DOR) can issue a tax warrant, which acts as a lien. This would allow:
1) Your wages can be garnished and accounts levied; and/or
2) Assets and property seized, both
...for the purposes of satisfying the debt.
The issue is that the DOR is more interested in collection than anything else. They will likely not listen to reason by informal letters. what can be done?
The first thing that one in your situation may wish to do is to call the Taxpayer Rights Advocate at(NNN) NNN-NNNNor write to:
Taxpayer Rights Advocate
Department of Revenue
P.O. Box 5906
The Taxpayer Rights Advocate helps resolve taxpayer problems and complaints not solved through normal channels.
If this does not work and there is no more administrative appeal process, then one may have no choice but to file a Writ of Mandamus
in Court, and have the Court weigh in, possibly voiding the DOR's claims. Hopefully, it will not have to come to this step.
