  1. Generally, compensation received for personal injury claims are not taxable. Whether or not they count as an asset against which Michigan can assert a lien is probably best answered by a Michigan CPA. Good luck.

  2. I don't know about the state, but the IRS can pull the money directly out of your bank account. Best bet is to get current.
