Given the importance of payroll tax to California’s state revenue stream, it is no surprise that the EDD is aggressive in its means of collection. Agents can levy business bank accounts, contact customers directly to demand payment, and/or file a tax lien against your business, which becomes a matter of public record and can negatively impact your operations. More extreme measures include shutting down business operations and potential criminal charges against business owners and other responsible parties.
Additionally, tax liabilities can grow substantially with the addition of interest and penalties that the EDD imposes. Because of the size of these liabilities, many individuals and businesses cannot afford to pay their liabilities in full. Luckily a variety of payment options exist.
