What Is a Tax Levy?
A tax levy is when the IRS seizes your property to satisfy the debt you owe. It is different from a tax lien because the levy takes property to satisfy the debt, while a lien is a legal claim against property to secure payment for your tax debt.
Some examples of tax levies:
- Bank levies
- Wage garnishment
- Property seizure
- Reduced tax refunds
How Does a Tax Levy Work?
- The IRS must send you a 30-day notice of its intent to levy
- The IRS must send you a notice demanding payment
- The tax levy can only be issued if you have failed to propose a payment plan and ignored prior notices
If you recently received a 30-day notice of intent to levy from the IRS, there is still time to act. It's important that you come up with a solution to repay your debt.
Can My Tax Levy Be Released?
If you received a notice of intent to levy through the IRS, you have the right to appeal it and stop a tax levy altogether. If the tax levy has already started, you may even request levied assets to be returned to you.
To start an appeal, reach out to the IRS to make an arrangement to get your tax bill paid and request a release from the tax levy. When submitting the appeal, you will be working with a different office from the Collections office.
