Thank you in advance
in general when you are unable to pay state for taxes you owe, you may be able to qualify for a tax payment plan.
The agency may have placed a tax lien against you as you failed to pay a tax debt. If you have unpaid tax debt, the agency can seize your assets to pay it off. It can seize money in your bank accounts, garnish a portion of your wages or keep your state tax return. It can also seize and sell property that you own. A state tax lien, like a Federal tax lien has NOTHING to do with a garnishment or levy on your wages. A lien is a notice to your creditors that you have an outstanding tax liability.
A lien damages your credit score and may bring a flood of letters from companies that research tax lien filings offering to help solve your tax problem, but it does NOT cause an action on your wages.
as you said, You could set up payment agreements with the Comptroller of Maryland Compliance Division; you can call them at 410-974-2432 or 1-888-674-0016 I guess you need to contact the agency for mor einfo in detail. Comptroller of Maryland - Public Services - Agency Information
