When it comes to collecting taxes, your state is likely to be more aggressive than the IRS.

The IRS is a huge organization, with a lot of things to going on, and it can take months, or even years for them to start enforced collections.

Your state moves much quicker, and in many cases, it’s worse to owe state taxes than it is to owe the IRS.

States are actually quicker to levy and garnish to collect tax debt, and they have tools that aren’t available to the IRS. 

For instance, some states will block renewal of your driver’s license if you don’t pay your tax debt on time.
