Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.

If this is initial notice, you have between 30 - 60 days to respond. After that you will usually receive another notice demanding payment. Unless you owe obscene sum, state departments state tax department will not levy your property. It is too expensive and often not worth the the court fees. The same apply to bank accounts and wages. They may put a lien on your property, take your federal refund and give your case to a location agency. But it usually takes several years until state tax department give up and give your case to collection agency.

State departments don't have the same rights as IRS. While IRS doesn't need a court order to garnish your wages or social security check, states do need court order and they cannot take your social security check.

There are other options. Find out what's the problem, maybe you can fix it with a supporting documents or amending your return. You can request installment agreement if you cannot pay right away. If you disagree with the notice, call the tax department and explain why you disagree.
