- Audits: An audit is a procedure used by a taxing authority to review your records to determine if your return is accurate and complete. If a discrepancy or error is found, you could be required to pay an additional amount, interest and penalties. Misreporting found to be willful could lead to criminal sanctions. An audit can be conducted in office or in person by the taxing authority.
- Liens: A lien is a legal claim of public record that is filed against your real or personal property securing the payment of taxes. It can affect your ability to sell the property or damage your credit, among other things.
- Levies: A levy is a collection action. It gives the taxing authority the ability to seize money in a bank account or garnish your wages to pay your tax debt.
