I guess it depends; may varies state to state.Say , if you have a personal bank account and live outside CA and owe back taxes, interest and/or penalties.to CA FTB, then, it is rare, but the FTB can and will levy out of state bank accounts. Typically, the FTB must file suit in your home state and then once the FTB has its judgment, it will levy your out of CA state bank accounts. The FTB would prefer that you, a taxpayer, simply set up a payment plan.In general, the CA FTB usually needs to go through a judicial process designed to gain the target state's bank. If it were a bank in, say NYS, and it was a NYS corporate account, that would take quite a while for the FTB if they could do it at all.However, aslongas the bank in question was a branch of a bank operating in CA the court could serve the lien papers on the bank's registered agent in the state of CA.
