Hi from Just Answer. I'mCustomer I will assist.
Your SSI disability benefit is exempt from garnishment or other state tax collection. It's why you got your previous levy back. As long as you can prove the amount in your bank account comes from exempt funds, they are exempt.
The state tax collectors can threaten, but they can't legally collect the tax. You could ask them to classify you as uncollectible, so they will take you off their collection list.
Thanks for asking at Just Answer. Positive feedback to rate my assistance will be appreciated. I'mCustomer
