The State Department of Taxation can file a tax lien, which will attach to any real property you own in Hawaii. Hawaii has a centralized Bureau of Conveyances that permits a single tax lien filing to attach to properties in each county.
The Department of Taxation can then wait for you to sell your property or, possibly, seek to foreclose the tax lien. Also, the Department of Taxation can attempt to levy your property manager or rental agent to intercept any net proceeds of rental activity.
Depending upon your financial institution, the DoTax could attempt to levy your financial accounts. Depending upon your employer, the DoTax could garnish your wages.
The DoTax could also refer your tax matter to the Civil Recoveries Division of the Attorney General’s Office to pursue a civil judgment. In theory, once a judgment was obtained, the State could hire a debt collector in your state to pursue the judgment.
