This answer doesn't really address anything I asked. In the question, I said we did not live in NC--we moved out of NC in October 2007. The paperwork that I quoted in the question gave dates of 01/01/2008 to 12/31/2008---that is why the questions was posed. As I stated, we did not live in NC in 2008---also as stated, we did not own property, work, earn money, etc in NC in 2008. Thus, how can money be taken from us when nothing was owed----and we never received anything ever notifying us of an issue. I understand states can go after back taxes---my question was--how we could possibly owe back taxes when we don't live or work there, how can we get back money that has already been taken out of our account? There is nothing in this answer that makes it even seem like you read what I wrote in. Is that what you are referring to getting 'additional assistance' for?
