Florida Tax Laws - Collections Actions

When an assessment against a taxpayer (including a business or corporation) is finalized, whether by Florida sales tax audit or whatever means, the Department of Revenue (DOR) issues a Notice of Collection. If your debt is swiftly paid or arrangements are made to pay it, the matter does not have to go forward to collection actions. A tax warrant is issued by the DOR, however, when your taxes are unpaid and this document publicly establishes the DOR believes you owe. Upon filing in the Circuit Court where you own real or personal property, the result is a lien will be put into effect.

Florida tax law allows the following actions to be done when you owe back taxes:

  • Garnishment of your wages
  • Revocation of your business registration or licenses
  • Your bank account can be frozen and taken to retire your tax debt
  • Your property and assets can be encumbered, seized and sold to pay your back taxes
  • Despite paying the debt, the lien will remain on your credit report for 7 to 10 years
  • Subject to penalties between 10% per month and 100% of the tax due.
  • Interest on the debt accrues daily on the unpaid balance
  • Issue an arrest warrant with the local law enforcement

The Law Offices of Moffa, Sutton, & Donnini, P.A. have over 30 years of experience in successfully resolving serious tax problems in Florida. Florida tax controversy is the main focus of our practice and our 30 plus years of work as lawyers and 50 plus years work as CPAs has given us the knowledge required to aggressively tackle tough tax situations. If you have received a tax warrant or feel that you soon will, it is time to retain a hard-hitting Florida sales tax lawyer from our firm.

Halting the Effects of a Florida Tax Warrant/Lien

In 2010, our state legislature granted authority to the DOR to publish the names of taxpayers who have unpaid taxes. Unpaid taxes will not simply go away. Tax authorities will keep your case open for many years to come. In fact, a Florida tax warrant often may not be relieved in bankruptcy. Therefore, it is vital that an experienced attorney review you case to go over what legal option is most favorable for you.

A wage garnishment or a levy on your property may, many times, be stopped or reversed quickly. We are ready to meet, discuss your case, and get to work on your behalf.
