How a Levy is Issued
In case of unpaid taxes, the IRS issues a tax levy if it sends you a notice regarding a tax debt that you do not act upon it. You need to appeal or respond within 30 days of receiving the notice of the intent to levy. You will also need to make payment arrangements within due time to avoid a levy or other penalties. If you do not owe any taxes to the IRS, and the IRS still sends you a notice of intent to levy, we can help sort out the issue.
How to Stop an IRS Levy
The IRS may release the levy if you act in time. If you can prove that the levy will cause an immediate economic hardship, the IRS may release the levy. Other scenarios wherein the IRS may release a levy are:
- You paid in full the taxes owed
- Your ability to pay taxes will increase after releasing the levy
- You enter into an Installment Agreement and the terms of the agreement don’t allow for the levy to continue
- The value of the property is more than the amount owed
