I'm ***** *****. I am 5 years behind in taxes. Got collection

Hi, I'm ***** *****. I am 5 years behind in taxes. Got collection notice from MA DOR stating that if I didn't respond by 2/15/16, they would begin collections proceedings. I sent a documented application for relief/hearing back prior to 2/15/16. DOR agent left a few messages on my home phone asking what I was appealing. I called her back multiple times, only getting voicemails. I left two messages last week, still no response. TodayJA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?Customer: Today, I tried to pick up my prescription medication, and was told that my credit/debit card was declined. I asked the bank and was informed that DOR had placed levies on both my checking and savings accounts. This leaves me and my family no money to live. And I can't get my prescription medication!JA: OK got it. Last thing — Tax Professionals generally expect a deposit of about $32 to help with your type of question (you only pay if satisfied).

I am a Canadian citizen who worked Kenya based company.

,I am a Canadian citizen who worked for a Kenya based company. We bought a drilling rig in Houston. When I never got paid I sued the company in Houston court and had the rig seized in Houston before it left the country. I won the case and took possession of the drilling rig. It was then sold by my lawyer. Now my lawyer has not released my money because he is not sure if he has to hold US tax on this money. Is this correct?? How can I owe US tax when I never worked in the US and the company was based in Kenya.
