EDD Collections – Liens, Levies, and Garnishment
Given the importance of payroll tax to EDD California’s state revenue stream, it is no surprise that the EDD Employment Development Department is aggressive in its means of collection. EDD Collections 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.
The EDD Collection Process
Often, the first indication of an unpaid debt to the state comes in the form of a phone call or more often, a letter from a Tax Compliance Representative (Tax Rep) employed by the Central Collection Division of the EDD. The notice from the EDD will state the nature and the amount of the debt, a date by which the debt must be satisfied, and the contact information for the Tax Rep assigned to collect the debt.
