    Answered . If you can't get clarification from the state tax department, you may need to hire an attorney to determine what rights you have to bring an action against the state. Another route would be to dispute the lien with your credit agencies. They will contact the department and ask for proof to support the lien, If they don't get the necessary proof, they will remove it from your report. If they do get sufficient proof, then you may learn more about the basis for the lien than you currently know.

    Unfortunately, without more information, that's the best information I can provide.
