This so called collection company called me out of the blue on a Thursday night in Feb 2008 and said" we have been looking for you for 19 years" and "You owe the State of VA $2700.00 and you need to pay it by Monday, or your pay check is going to be garnished or your house is going to have a lein put on it"! I was like what the heck are you talking about?? She tried for a good 30 mins to get me to pay her some money, which I didn't, because I am not stupid.

Anyway, it turns out that for some odd reason, my 1989 state tax form was either lost or I mistakenly didn't file it for that year and now...19 years later they want me to file a tax return for it. Now 19 years ago I was 19 years old. I don't have the W-2's or the paperwork from that long ago! So what am I to do?

I tried writing to the IRS, they only keep then on for 10 years and SSA didn't have electronic tapes of them that showed the state tax portion. Meanwhile the person at DCS, started calling me at work and at home harrassing me until I told her I knew the law and she had to quit calling me. This is a bunch of crap... i am now calling a tax attorney.

What is going on with VA. and DCS

AUTHOR: Melhereforu - (U.S.A.)

I recieved a call today 8/14/08 from DCS. They said they were calling to collect a dept owed to the State of Virginia from 1997 for unpaid taxes. Guess what the amount was? Oh, about the same as yours.....$2700.00. I told them that I never owed on any tax returns from that period of time. I was a full time student and worked full time, filed all taxes and never owed. As a matter of fact, I believe I received a refund.......I think I have those tax returns and can't wait to find them to prove what type of company they are..."Rip-off artist." They said I have until the 18th of Aug. 2008 to pay or they will garnish my wages. They said that the state could not find me.......So, I asked how they got my info.......they said I was listed in the phone book........So, I asked how they knew I lived in LA. ....Didn't want to answer any more questions and got rude. If the state of VA. was looking for me they had my SS#.........TO EASY!!!

However, If I don't find the tax paperwork I wonder if they really will start garnishment. I am so Pi**ed off. Anyway, just thought I would share that with you.
