A taxpayer in California hired Timberline Tax Group to help resolve their tax liability issues with both the Internal Revenue Service and State of California Franchise Tax Board. The Associate started out with reviewing the account information to determine where the taxpayer stood financially to determine which road to resolution would be best. While working with the Internal Revenue Service, the State of California Franchise Tax Board hit the client with a levy on the bank account for an estimated $6,700.00. The Associate switched gears from the IRS to the State. It took several phone calls and a couple of hours of negotiations with the State representative to finally agree to remove the levy and return the funds to the taxpayer’s account.
