My 14 year old, multi million dollar business was seized by the State of Colorado in Sept, 2009 for short paying agreed upon State tax payments (past due) for each of the 3 months prior to the seizure (pristine payment history between 1995 & 2008). The Dept. of Rev. officer only showed me the warrant but refused to provide a copy. Should I have been given the opportunity of a hearing before seizure? I paid the full $32,000.00 5 days later and was given the property back but closed the doors 6 weeks later due to the financial hit of the lump sum payment and damage to reputation within the community & client base. At the exact moment of the seizure, a firm we hired to mitigate the short payment issue was speaking with the officers supervisor working out the details (unaware of the seizure).When the seizure was taking place, we called the firm working with the State and found out that the firm was speaking to the Supervisor at that moment and said he was under the impression that there was an agreement underway but to no avail. Anyway... should there have been some kind of due process in this case and if so, is there some recourse to be considered this far down the road?
