The IRS Seizure Process
Falling behind on your tax payments could land you in a situation where the IRS seizes your assets. To legally take your property, the IRS is required to go through a three-step process to ensure that the taxpayer is adequately notified before a tax levy is issued.
The steps in the IRS seizure process include:
- The IRS sends the taxpayer a notice of demand for payment.
- The taxpayer ignores or fails to make payment arrangements with the IRS.
- The IRS delivers a final notice of intent to levy and notice of your right to a hearing to the taxpayer.
After the final notice is sent, the taxpayer has 30 days to make payment arrangements or appeal. If the taxpayer fails to take action, the IRS is permitted to start seizing his or her property after the 30 days.
As an exception to this rule, if the IRS believes the tax collection is in jeopardy, they do not need to offer you a hearing 30 days prior to asset seizure. In this case, however, the IRS is required to send the taxpayer his or her right to an appeal after the levy has been issued.
Collection Due Process Hearing
Upon receipt of the IRS’s notice of intent to levy, you can appeal by requesting a collection due process hearing. During this hearing, you and your Mississippi asset seizure attorney can present a case to show why the IRS should not take your assets.
Damiens Law Firm, PLLC can help you identify acceptable reasons for an appeal in your particular situation. It might be that you already paid off the debt. Perhaps there is proof that the IRS made a mistake in assessing your tax liabilities.
