Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Hi, my name is Mark. I will be happy to help you with your questions.
I was just checking on the statute of limitation to collect on these taxes. The federal government has a 10 year statute but California has a 20 year statute.
Do you still live in California?
California would not be able to garnish your Social Security Benefits.
VA benefits could only be garnished for spousal or child support.

California has very long statutes. Assuming that the returns were filed on time the state would have up until 2023 and 2024 to collect on these taxes.
That is correct.
