It’s no secret that most states are suffering from large budget deficits. As a result, debt collection for back taxes by state agents has become more aggressive. Even for taxpayers who have failed to file tax returns, the state has methods of determining income and filing on your behalf (often using inaccurate average gross income estimates to do so). All of this to assess your tax liability and to pursue you for any unpaid state taxes, with unpaid debts often resulting in wage garnishments and bank levies.


While most states only have one tax department (usually labeled the Department of Revenue), in the state of California, citizens actually deal with three tax agencies: the California Franchise Tax Board (FTB), the Employment Development Department (EDD) and the Board of Equalization (BOE)—all of which are seeking collection of any unpaid taxes. That means if you owe state taxes in California, you may be dealing with three separate agencies!
