Thank you for using Just Answer. I need some information -

Why would a company you have a contract with be receiving a tax levy for one of your employees?

Is this tax levy for your employee a result of CA withholding tax that you should have withheld and remitted to the state but failed to do so?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
I send the answer to the question already and did not receive the information a need.
so here goes again.

the employee use to work for the company but now works for my company . The
old company was sent the levy I told them all they had to do is fill out Page 2 and
send back to California Tax Office. But they insist on holding my money. I need
the exact law stating what they need to do.

Expert:  Karla replied 6 years ago.
The only way this company can withhold your payment is if the tax levy is against you.

It sounds like they received the State tax lien for their failure to pay the taxes associated with their employment of the person that is now your employee. Is my understanding of the situation correct?

I have contacted our moderators to reverse your acceptance of the chat where I was requesting information. When you say page 2, what exact form are you referring to. There are several legal references to State levies.
