I mentioned at the beginning of my note that it was a sales tax warrant on a corporation, not on a person or dba, and the corporation had no bank accounts or other assets because it never had operations, therefore the "salary garnishment" or assets seized etc do not apply. In this case, what can be done?
The fact is that the corporation has not done any business since its formation....zero sales....done nothing but paid the corporate tax at the beginning of the year and reporting zero sales, in addition to filing the federal income tax with zero income.
The tax penalty -some $3,000 plus- is an assumption by the Fl Dept of Revenue, based on nothing, because the company -I repeat- was not doing any kind of business.
The owners, who live abroad, wanted to keep the company "active" for a while to see if they could start to generate some business, but it is most probable that it will be closed definitely.
