Each state has a different system for administering and collecting tax, and as a Virginia taxpayer, it is important to have an attorney familiar with the Virginia tax system. State taxing authorities are often difficult to deal with because they have a less formal system than the IRS and your attorney will need to know in which ways Virginia is different from the IRS when it comes to approaching tax controversies. Mr. Frost can speak with the Virginia Department of Taxation on your behalf to resolve your state tax debt.
State taxing agencies are in direct competition with the IRS for your tax dollars, and this can make them especially intrusive when it comes to assessing tax. Believe it or not, the Virginia Department of Taxation has the authority to garnish your wages, which can prevent you from paying your more pressing bills and impact your ability to provide for your (or your family’s) basic needs. This seems unjust to most of us, but this is a real possibility and resolving a tax levy will often require a well-thought-out strategy.
