I recently received a personal income tax collection bill

Customer Question

I recently received a personal income tax collection bill for $8,40l.69 for year 1995 from the State of California Franchise Board. I was on disability from 1985 to 1995 at which time I went on Social Security. I do not know why I owe this amount nor do I have the means to pay it. Can this bill be dismissed on any grouns. I desperately need help. Thank you. ***** meo
