Now I have a State tax lien.


Recommended Posts

:shock:

So I come home today, and there is a letter from a neighboring Virginia county's tax collection office.

It is addressed to my employer's HR office in Florida.

It is dated 11/29/06 and says that as of 12/12/06 they will be garnishing 100% of the wages for the purposes of collection.

The amount is very small. However I am absolutely pissed off about this because I stipulated with the Virginia county tax collectors office a few months ago, that whatever I payed them constituted payment in full.

On top of this they have the nerve to tell my employer that they will be garnishing at 100% when I believe that federal law limits their capacity to garnish to "X" percent.

On top of this, child support already comes out of my check.

I want to let them know that they barked up the wrong tree.

Is there anything that I can do? I am not happy about this.

Thanks

Who signed the lien?

What code section is referenced on the lien?

You need to check to see if the person who signed the lien has the authority to do so.

There is at least 1000 words of code on the document. Would you care for me to expand?

The person who signed the lien's handwriting is not readable.

I cannot tell if that person is authorized if they didn't print their name below.

Tax lien? No problem.

1. Send a DV

2. Hire an attorney

3. Bend over and kiss your a$$ goodbye:mrgreen:

More great advice from the guy who's posts are all over the colletor's forums.

My days of posting here are done, seems like this place is loaded with bill collectors and their sympathizers.

This place used to be great now it is TOTAL CRAP.

Its not just you.. everytime I post it seems he is behind me trying to make me look like an air head.. I live in NC and I am pretty up on the law.. I have learned alot from NASCAR and a few others here, who I have come to respect and admire..

.. but when I state something I was told by a local judge.. (like garnishment in my state is not recognized unless it tax or child support).. and SOL date which came from the AG or the illegal use of payday loans.. which , if you google it for my state it is splashed everywhere especially recently.. I am shot down..corrected and asked to provide a statute..

I dont post for fun or my health.. I have been through these trenches ... so its not just you... I am also weary of these types of conversations..it makes me look unstable and unsure...(I am neither) and frankly pisses me off.. (I also dont post on collectors forums which I admit made me wonder)..so I chose to ignore it most of the time.. and hopefully those that know me on this board will realize I dont just type to be read... i am not going to post something unless I am sure or have been through this and 99% of the time I have a judge, lawyer or the AG in agreement... (for my state) frankly its just not worth it

I hate to chime in on a not-so-positive note, but I too am getting tired of receiving irrelevant comments instead of posts that are in the spirit helping one another out. It would be nice if those who don't have anything encouraging or useful to add would not respond at all. Vague comments/implications and smartass tones do not help anyone. Also, as long as someone is being cordial, you need to get over past disagreements with them and be polite in return. I dont' know what's going on here, but it's nice to know I'm not the only person wondering why this is happening here so much lately. Truly bums me out because I've learned so much here, and still do. I don't post as often as I used to. I don't come here to be talked down to.

Basically I think what is trying to be said is that tax liens are not easy to overcome and the ordinary layman should not attempt; you're fighting the government. Overall you should consult with legal counsel.

that is not the implication.. and even if that is your intent then say it.. this is not the first time... when someone posts they have a real situation and i for one am tired of the flip replies and snarky comments..... dont answer if you dont know... and if you do.. either HELP or shut up

As far as dealing with the gov.. you dont need a lawyer in many cases... most of the time that will end up costing you more.. many times it can be worked out it just takes time.

Call and find out who signed the lien, and what their title is.

Look at the codes regulating the issuance of liens. In most cases a magistrate/judge needs to be the one signing the lien.

Most of the time an overzealous agent is the one signing the lien - generally they are ignorant of the law, but so are most citizens.

I would also guess some sort of judgment would be affiliated with the issuance of the lien.

Is there a heading/title on the document you received - or the document that appears to be the lien?

You are dead on with that.. I had that happen to me a few years ago.. where a agent was a little too trigger happy.. I got it removed in two days by going over her head.. sometimes they act before they get all the facts

Why would I want to consult with legal counsel? I got this taken care of this morning with an ITS letter for which I named the director.

That simple.

It's the vagueness that is the killer. I can take the joking, but if the point seems to be to deduct from your original post, It should make you wonder who the real parties of interest are here.

This forum used to be great. Maybe the credit repair section still is? It seems like when you come to this section, there are like 40 people viewing, but few will give a hand. I use this section as a last resort, figuring that "strength comes in numbers", but I usually end up going somewhere else to get the answer.
