We talk to many good people who are experiencing tax levies - wage garnishments, income levies, or bank levies.   Obviously they feel overwhelmed, unsure of what to do next, and fear there is no way out.  The IRS is powerful, and the uncertainty of their next move can create a tremendous amount of anxiety. 

A tax levy is a powerful tool for the IRS to collect delinquent back taxes owed.  Remember, the IRS is an unwilling lender.  The IRS and State Department Revenue agencies are creditors who have the authority to forcibly seize assets to clear up back tax debts.  Generally, the IRS will levy bank accounts and income sources. 

The taxpayer must be proactive to correct and avoid any tax levies.  The IRS will use different levy options because the taxpayer is unresponsive, or the taxpayer is not complying with what’s been asked of them.  It helps to know the IRS system, and collection process of the IRS and State to avoid any levy actions.   Important factors – taxpayer must be compliant with any required tax return filings, must be current with any required tax deposits, taxpayer needs to be proactive in addressing the tax debts… but cautious to best position themselves to successfully manage the IRS collection actions and avoid any IRS levies.
