What is a Tax Levy?

The IRS has no reason not to go through with a tax levy process if they deem it necessary to collect outstanding tax debts. They typically resort to this option when a taxpayer has not been properly paying their tax dues for a significant amount of time without even attempting to agree on an easier repayment method with the IRS.

Here is what generally happens during a tax levy process:

1. The IRS will assess your tax debt.
2. They will send the tax bill or a Notice and Demand for Payment.
3. Failing to pay for the dues or refusing to negotiate a debt settlement plan will prompt the IRS to send a Final Notice of Intent to Levy and a Notice of Your Right to A Hearing.
4. You then have 30 days to satisfy the debt or finalize a debt settlement plan with the IRS. Otherwise, the IRS will execute a levy on your financial assets.

The IRS will be interested in any assets of yours that can pay back your outstanding debt. Here’s a shortlist of the kinds of tax levies that they can choose to impose on you:

Bank Levies

The IRS will contact your bank and take the funds from your accounts to pay for the tax debt. They will give you a 21-day grace period during which your accounts will be frozen. If you are not able to settle a repayment plan by the end of the grace period, they will continue with the levy. They will keep repeating this process until the debt is paid in full.

Property Seizure

Certain properties like private vehicles, houses, rental income, dividends, retirement accounts, licenses, accounts receivables, and even the cash loan value of life insurance policies can be taken by the IRS to pay for the debt.

Reduced Tax Refunds

If you are a recipient of state or federal tax refunds, the IRs will take all or a part of these reduction benefits to pay for your outstanding debt.

Wage Garnishment

The garnishment ends only after one of the following situations: (1) the debt is completely paid off, (2) you have successfully negotiated a repayment plan with the IRS, or (3) the statute of limitations has expired, which means the IRS can no longer collect from you.

Preventing a Tax Levy

Of course, the best way to avoid a tax levy is to simply pay for the entire outstanding debt. But everyone knows this is not always possible even if you exhaust all your resources.
