IRS Levy Relief
The IRS has broad administrative powers to collect tax — “superior rights.” As opposed to other creditors, in that they can garnish wages, levy bank accounts, seize property, attach receivables and government payments, and attach Social Security payments without seeking approval from any court.
Levies can often be avoided by keeping a constant chain of communication open between the taxpayer and the IRS and by setting deadlines to provide requested information. Frost Law safeguards your interests during these discussions.
After a tax assessment is made, the IRS issues a series of notices asking the taxpayer to pay the tax. Taxpayers have 30 days from the date of the final notice of intent to levy to either pay the tax in full or to request a hearing with the Appeals Office of the IRS.
IRS Lien Resolution
Liens give the IRS a legal claim to a taxpayer’s property as security or payment for a tax debt. A tax lien arises after the IRS assesses the liability, sends notice and demand for payment, and the taxpayer neglects or refuses to fully pay the debt within 10 days after notification.
Once these requirements are met, a lien is created for the amount of your tax debt. By filing notice of this lien, creditors are publicly notified that the IRS has a claim against all of your property, including property you acquire after the lien is filed. The lien attaches to all of your property and to all of your rights to property.
