The largest and most aggressive debt collector which oversees business and personal back taxes is the IRS and running a close second is the State of Illinois. Both the IRS and State of Illinois have access to personal and business financial information for the purpose of imposing bank levies, wage garnishments and involuntary property sales to satisfy uncollected tax debt. So what rights do business owners have when faced with any amount of tax debt?
