I am in Fairfax County Va. I owed back real estate tax on a property. Fairfax County took $6000 out of my checking account. I was given no notification other than a phone call 3 weeks ago telling me that I could set up a payment plan. I told them I would and next thing I know, $6000 is out of my account. Don't they have to give me some type of legal notification that they will do this? I am assuming a lien was placed on my account, but I don't really know for sure. Do they have to go through the court to do this and am I entitled to a hearing?
