Q: we just received notice from credit report about a maryland tax lien
i was finally able to locate the lien and called comptroller collection to find out it was from 2007 individual tax return unpaid. we moved from maryland in 6/08 leaving a forwarding address. never received any notification from them. i had to research several days to locate this. can they place a lien on us after this about of time? can they place a lien without any notifications to us.
A: If Maryland (I am not licensed in Maryland) is like every other state I am familiar with then they are only required to send you a notice at your last know address. This means the last address known to them so either the address on your last return or on the change of address form if you filled one out. Try requesting a penalty abatement to lessen your penalties.
