FTB Unpaid Back Tax Help: FTB calling delinquent taxpayers

The FTB is implementing an automated dialer to make outbound collection calls to individual income-tax taxpayers in an effort to prevent collection actions such as tax liens, bank levies, and wage garnishments. The state FTB tax agency will implement a similar system for business entities in September 2012.

Taxpayers who did not respond timely to their final collection notice may receive a call with a broadcast message that guides them through steps to resolve their case via the FTB’s web and Interactive Voice Response self-service options.

A taxpayer who is already in the collections process may receive a call that directs him or her to a state FTB collector who will help resolve the case through several payment options. If the dialer doesn’t connect with a taxpayer, it leaves a message asking the taxpayer to call back.

Taxpayers who feel they have been contacted in error may call the FTB at (888) 895-8125.

Mike Habib - Thank you for being so professional and honest and taking care of my brothers IRS situation. We are so relieved it is over and the offer in compromise process went just as you said. Mike is very professional and will give you honest answers to the OIC process and you can really trust him. You won't be sorry you chose him!Joe and Deborah V.
Mike is a true professional. He really came thru for me and my business. Dealing with the IRS is very scary. I'm a small business person who works hard and Mike helped me see that they are not that scary after all. He was always there with the answers I needed and was very good about calling me back which I appreciated since your first reaction is to freak out and ask a million questions. He solved a messy case and worked very hard to resolve it. His rates are VERY reasonable for the amount of work he does! I give him my highest recommendation!Marcie R.
Mike was incredibly responsive to my IRS issues. Once I decided to go with him (after interviewing numerous other tax professionals), he got on the phone with the IRS immediately (as in the same day I signed with him) to squash an impending issue. And he worked directly with them to quickly come to a resolution I am very happy with. I'd highly recommend reaching out to Mike to see if he can help you with any IRS issues. I'm very satisfied!Marshall W.
I’ve seen and heard plenty of commercials on TV and radio for businesses offering tax help. I did my research on many of them only to discover numerous complaints and unresolved tax issues. I found Mike Habib through my own online search and contacted him. He was very professional with great communication, always answering my questions and concerns. Mike resolved my complicated tax problem just as he said he would. I would definitely recommend his services to family and friends.Nancy & Sal V.
