What are my rights concerning California franchise tax penalties? 2 Answers as of June 03, 2011They have been after me for 20 years ($1500.00 plus $9000.00 in interest/penalities). I'm 64 and will only have s. security to retire on. Is there any way to stop this collection? Have been going the hardship route but it wont work this year.

California law allows the FTB a very long time to collect back taxes. If you are living off only social security, consider making an offer in compromise or hardship application to stop collection. Talk to a tax lawyer in your area.
