Not sure what to do now that you’ve accrued a state tax liability? There are a few options…

First, it’s important that you pay all you can to bring the debt down as much as possible. This will make the resolution terms more manageable.

However, before you pay, make sure the amount is counting towards your down payment - if a large down payment is required by your state.

Don’t assume the state is going to be easier to work with than the IRS just because they are your neighbors. Respond to their requests immediately!

In fact, the best thing you can do when you can’t pay the debt immediately is to remain diligent about contact with the state’s revenue department. Always follow up!

Paying what you can and communicating well with the revenue department can prevent the enforcement ratchet from advancing. Need help? Talk to an expert today!
