How Can I Resolve My State Tax Debt?

Most State taxing authorities follow the same general guidelines for resolving tax debt as the IRS. The first step is compliance. File your missing/required tax returns, and make sure your current taxes are paid in full. Then negotiate the resolution of your back taxes. Bear in mind that each State may have more than one taxing authority with its own set of unique rules.

As someone that has 15+ years of experience negotiating with the IRS and different State taxing authorities, I can attest that some States can be very difficult to deal with, while others are relatively easy. Most are quicker to collect than the IRS, and most share information with the Service in an effort to boost collections. But one thing is certain: It's better to be proactive and contact both the IRS and State tax collectors before they come looking for you.
