I'm a resident in the state of California. I had an overpayment from a previous year that has been subsequently paid off via unemployment deduction. I now have an outstanding balance of penalties an interest that equal nearly $1000. I have receive notices of judgement from the Superior Court, however, I was never delivered a notice to appear to have the opportunity to defend myself. How is this possible? Why am I not allowed due process?
Another issue is that I am unable to negotiate the fees to be lowered. Even the IRS works with you. How does the EDD have this much power and why is it impossible to fight them?
