Florida Tax Warrant

Has a Florida Tax Warrant Been Issued?

Under Florida tax law, the Department of Revenue (DOR) can issue a tax warrant, which is effectively the same as a lien, when you or your company fail to pay allegedly past due taxes. This puts into place various collection actions and penalties against you or your business. Your wages can be garnished, your bank accounts frozen, and both can be used to pay the back taxes. Assets and property that you own can be seized, put up for sale and the proceeds used to pay off your tax debt. The DOR can revoke your business licenses and, even when your debt is paid, the Florida tax warrant will stay on your credit history for 7-10 years. If these consequences were not enough, the Daily interest accrues on the unpaid balance of your debt and a 10% warrant penalty is assessed on the taxes you owe. This is on top of a 10% per month penalty for the first five months the amounts are unpaid.

Thinking about filing bankruptcy to get out of your Florida tax obligations? Many types of tax obligations not only survive bankruptcy, but can also "pierce the corporate veil" to make owner personally liable for the alleged taxes due.

At the Law Offices of Moffa, Sutton, & Donnini, P.A., we have concentrated our practice on tackling the grave and difficult situations that a Florida Tax Warrant creates. Our attorneys have worked for over 50 years, finding and implementing solutions to tough Florida tax problems. Whether the Department of Revenue failed to follow the law coming up to the issuance of the warrant or the taxpayers were never legally responsible for the tax in the first place, our firm works to help your clients resolve their tax warrants in the most favorable way possible.

Avoiding Further Tax Penalties

In many cases, a wage garnishment or levies on property and assets can be quickly halted or reversed. Frequently, it takes aggressive methods on our part to bring this about but results can, often, be obtained for the taxpayer. Tax warrants and their consequences only have a chance to disappear with decisive and knowledgeable legal actions. It is important that all concerned understand their rights and the options that are available. In most cases, a tax warrant is valid for a period of 20 years after it is issued and it is important that we begin our work now, so that further interest and penalties can be avoided.

If you have been issued a Florida tax warrant, don't hesitate to act. Contact a Florida sales tax attorney from our firm today.
