  1. Make arrangements to pay the bill. Perhaps if you set up a payment plan with the State, they will unfreeze the account.

    If you have other debts, you may also want to consider filing bankruptcy, however, the State tax bill is very likely NOT a dischargeable debt. (most government debts are not dischargeable)

  2. You will need to contat the government agency and set up a payment plan. Only then will then will the account be released.
