Interest continues to run on proposed assessments even after an informal conference has been requested and scheduled. Therefore, you should consider making payments against your tax liability - particularly against any uncontested portions of the assessment – before an informal conference is held. If you make a partial payment, you should submit a letter with the payment indicating how the payment should be applied.
If a conference is timely requested, the Department of Revenue will not undertake any levy actions until the conference process is completed. However, even if you request a conference, the Department may still file a state tax lien against you.
