They took almost $5000 wage garnishment for unfiled taxes from 2012. Finally got the return completed and I owed $59 because I didn't have childcare receipts from 2012. Otherwise I truly owed $0. They told me they were processing my refund and then I find out they took $872 for the following year for not filing, 2013. I was in bankruptcy Jan 2013, I lost my job the middle of the year, my home, I was homeless and have been since 2013. My son and I were living in hotels when I could afford it and ended up in shelters, my car. I'm finally getting back on my feet, full time employed, an apt and now they want to garnish me again. I've gotten 1 paycheck without the garnishment. Its like they trying to keep people in debt, poor and I don't owe them and they know it. They're acting like I'm Al Capone and all they got was $59.
The way you tell the Dept of Rev that you owe no tax is by filing a tax return that shows no tax due. Even if it is an all zeros, signed and dated 'zero return,' that's how you communicate the 'no tax due' to the Dept. Otherwise, they will calculate the tax due based solely on information available to them, which is probably going to be an amount due greater than your tax return.
