A levy is one of the most traumatic events that can occur to a taxpayer. When a taxpayer fails to pay his/her/its taxes and owes delinquent taxes, the IRS and other taxing authorities may resort to wage garnishment and bank levies to seek the money they are owed.
The IRS has the authority to issue a bank levy, wage garnishment, and to seize your assets without a court proceeding. In most cases, the IRS is required to issue a Final Notice of Intent to Levy and offer an opportunity for a hearing before the Office of Appeals at least thirty days before it levies a taxpayer’s property.
A person who owes back taxes is typically already in a tough financial situation. Levies and wage garnishment will only worsen matters, possibly leading to financial ruin. Talking to an experienced tax attorney may be able to protect you from levy or wage garnishment or can work to stop the current garnishment of your wages.

We also handle matters involving bank levies, wage garnishments, and tax liens and can work with the IRS to seek a workable settlement or tax payment plan, depending on your unique situation.
If you owe back taxes and are at risk of a levy, or received a Final Notice of Intent to Levy or Notices of Levy from the IRS, or if you bank account or wages have already been levied, a tax attorney at the Politte Law Offices can work to protect your assets and property.
