IRS Levy Release

When you owe the IRS for back tax debt, you can expect to receive a collection notice titled, "Notice of Intent to Levy and Your Right to a Hearing from the enforcement division of the IRS. After 30 days from the date of that Notice of Intent to Levy, the IRS is free to seize your assets. The only obligation that the IRS has regarding the Notice of Intent to Levy is that they send it to an address that they have for you in their system.

The IRS does not have to guarantee that you receive the Notice to Levy. The IRS is only obligated to mail the notice. You may not know that the levy is coming until that fateful day when you learn from your payroll department that you have a levy and you won't be receiving much of a check on Friday. You may go to your ATM machine and discover the money in your bank account is missing. If you are on Social Security, Social Security Disability or you are receiving a Veteran's check, you are under a different set of rules called the Federal Payment Levy Program (FPLP) and we ask you to view our section titled "Social Security Levy" for more details.

Resolving Your IRS Tax Problems to Stop an IRS Wage Garnishment:

To resolve your IRS problem, you must restore your rights. This means that you must be in good standing with the IRS. If you have delinquent tax returns, your unfiled tax returns will need to be prepared and filed as quickly as possible.

Below are your options regarding the release of an IRS levy:

1. Pay the IRS in Full - This is the most obvious answer to your IRS problem. However, if you had access to the funds to pay the IRS in full, you would not have a levy and you most likely would not be here now. So, let's move on.

2. Agree to an IRS Installment Agreement - You can have an IRS levy stopped and released by entering into a payment plan. Anyone can call the IRS and agree to a payment plan that the IRS dictates to them. Before you have a levy released by entering into a payment plan with the IRS, you should consult with an experienced IRS tax relief professional. There are many factors that need to be considered prior to a taxpayer making a commitment to an Installment Agreement with the IRS.

3. Take Advantage of the Offer in Compromise Program - The IRS has expanded the eligibility and qualification standards for their new Fresh Start initiative. You may be able to settle with the IRS for much less than you owe. You, the struggling taxpayer, may be able to take advantage of the new Fresh Start initiative. When you file for an Offer in Compromise, the IRS will stop enforcement actions while your settlement offer is being reviewed.

4. Quit Your Job - Being the experienced IRS tax relief team that we are, we do not recommend this course of action. Good jobs are hard to find. You don't need to quit. Our highly skilled IRS Tax Attorneys have years of experience and know how to use the IRS code to our advantage. Flat Fee Tax Service, Inc. can have your IRS Levy stopped in 1 day. Keep your job. Keep your paycheck.

5. Temporarily Quit Your Job - If you have an employer who will let you temporarily quit your job for awhile with the idea that he will re-hire you later, this will stop an IRS levy. Of course, you will have lost out on the amount of money you would have earned and it could really make the IRS angry at both you and your employer once the IRS finds out. No need to temporarily leave your job when you could have our tax relief team obtain the levy release and settle your IRS problem.

Why would the IRS send a Notice of Intent to Levy?

The IRS / Internal Revenue Service must send a Notice of Intent to Levy and Your Right to a Hearing prior to an attempt to enforce collection on unpaid taxes. A tax levy by the IRS is a powerful collection tool used by the IRS to collect money and compel taxpayers to take action to resolve their tax debts. As an FYI, the IRS served over 2.6 million tax levy notices to third party (employers, banks, brokerages, etc.) custodians during the last reporting period.

Can the IRS seize my entire paycheck?

Yes they can. Normally, the IRS will follow Publication 1494 which provides a table for the amount of monthly income that is exempt from IRS seizure to provide a minimal amount of income for monthly expenses. This "exemption" will not be much and will leave you with very little to live on. The IRS may take your entire check through what is called a Manual Levy which is a supplement to a regular or normal levy. A Revenue Officer can sign off on a Manual Levy and take anything that they want.

Can the IRS continue, on an ongoing basis, seize my paycheck?

Absolutely. Unless steps are taken, the IRS will continuously levy your paycheck until the entire back tax debt is paid in full. The IRS will not cease collecting on your levy until a collection hold has been placed on your case. After our able and experienced Tax Attorneys have the levy stopped, the IRS will then fax an IRS Form 668-D (levy release) to your employer informing them that your IRS levy has been released. It is normal for our IRS tax relief team to have the levy released the same day that someone becomes our client.

How did the IRS obtain the Information necessary to levy me?

You, the struggling taxpayer, has provided all the information necessary for the IRS to take enforcement action against you. The IRS has the information that you sent to them as part of your tax return. In addition, your taxpayer information will come from your reported sources of income that was paid for your labor and services. The IRS has your information for wages paid to you from the W-2 and W4 information provided by your employer. The IRS also has the information for your income from self employment from Form 1099, Schedule C, Schedule E and K-1 tax reporting.
