Missouri will aggressively pursue delinquent taxes. However, they will send you several letters before taking serious action. If you ignore the letters and a garnishment is issued on your paycheck, you have reached the point of no return. Chances are almost certain that you will have to file a bankruptcy to get the garnishment released. If this tax debt is your only issue, that's an extreme solution. It will release the garnishment but might not get rid of the tax debt. You need a better strategy.
The first question I ask clients is: "Do you actually owe the tax" ? Many clients are not sure. That's where we start. Do you want to pay taxes that you don't owe? It's possible that through a series of events that you didn't even know was happening, you ended up with a tax bill.
The bottom line is Missouri will garnish your paycheck and take most of your money unless you prove that they are wrong.
Did you know that Missouri can send your account to the Prosecuting Attorney?
You can't use silence as your plan. I'll investigate and I'll speak up on your behalf. You might owe the tax and I can work out a plan for you. You might not owe the tax and you will be relieved. There is an answer and a resolution. Seek it. Call me.
