Understanding Tax Levies & Liens
When someone fails to pay their taxes, the IRS may decide that a levy is a necessary action. An IRS levy is one of the harshest collection methods, and it involves the legal seizure of someone’s property to pay back a tax debt.
Under federal law, the IRS has the right to levy any property you own or have an interest in, including:
- Bank accounts
- Retirement accounts
- Rental income
- Accounts receivable
The IRS also has the option of imposing a federal tax lien, which is the government’s claim against your property to secure payment of a tax debt. Liens can be attached to all of your assets, such as property, vehicles, and securities, as well as all business property you own.
How to Stop a Tax Levy
Stopping a tax levy requires swift action by the taxpayer. There are several tactics that can be used to get an IRS tax levy released.
The IRS may release a levy against your property if you:
- Pay the debt in full
- Prove financial hardship
- Enter into a payment plan
- Submit an offer in compromise
- Apply for the Fresh Start Program
- Request a partial payment agreement
- File for bankruptcy
