Taxpayers with federal tax issues typically have state tax issues:

  • Income Tax
  • Sale and Use Tax
  • Employer Withholding Tax
  • Unemployment Tax
  • Property Tax
  • Residency

Every state has a separate legal system for assessing and collecting tax. With fewer resources in comparison to the IRS as well as less formal procedures, state tax departments can be much more complicated to navigate. Most states have an Offer in Compromise program as well as payment plans. Pontius Tax Law, PLLC protects taxpayers with state tax issues from the Comptroller of Maryland, D.C. Office of Tax and Revenue, Virginia Department of Taxation, and other state taxing entities.
