What Is A Tax Levy?
A tax levy is an administrative process used by the IRS to collect your tax debts by seizing your property without the need to go to court. This is a serious situation that can have devastating results. Working with a Galveston tax levy attorney as early in the process as possible can help you to prevent, avoid, or reduce the impact of IRS liens and levies.
There are many ways for the IRS to satisfy a tax liability, and these are some of them:
Through this process, the IRS can order your bank to freeze your account for 21 days, which means that you won’t be able to withdraw money from your account. After 21 days, the bank will withdraw the money that you owe from your account and hand the funds over to the IRS.
The IRS can seize your property (a house, automobile, or land property). Once they’re in possession of your property, the IRS will sell it and collect the money as part of your tax debt payment.
Reduced Tax Refunds
If you’re eligible to get tax refunds from the IRS, your state, or even municipality, the IRS will hold or collect them as partial payment to your tax debts.
Through this process, the IRS will require your employer to deduct a specific amount from your salary and send them regularly to the IRS until your tax debt is fully paid.
Business owners, independent contractors, and those who otherwise do not receive a regular paycheck from an outside employer can experience even more devastating blows in the way of non-earnings garnishments. These garnishments, instead of being spread out across multiple pay periods, can instead be one-time garnishments of 100% of the expected compensation and can come directly from your bank account or other sources.
Whatever type of tax levy, lien, or garnishment you may be facing from the IRS, we can help. Our dedicated and experienced Galveston tax levy attorneys are motivated to find the best possible resolution for your tax problems.
Preventing a Tax Levy
The IRS will only issue a Notice of Tax Levy as a last resort. You’ll be given enough chances to settle your tax debts before seizing your assets. In fact, there are several ways to prevent getting a tax levy.
First, you have to pay your taxes in full and on time. It’s the best way to avoid getting in trouble with the IRS. Once you are already behind, it can be a challenge to keep up and can result in an even bigger debt obligation. Timely filing of your annual taxes and paying them in a expedient fashion is your best defense against tax liens. Unfortunately, this is not always possible.
Next, you can set up a payment plan so you can still be able to pay all your tax debts at a pace and with an amount that you’re comfortable with. We can help to negotiate a tax repayment plan that works for you, your income and expenses, and your future expected tax debts so that you are able to afford to pay your back taxes and avoid getting further behind.
The final way is to make an offer and settle your tax debts by paying what you can only afford and less than what you originally owe. We are often able to effectively work with the IRS to obtain a reduced payment settlement that results in fee forgiveness, and can often include a payment plan to help further reduce your total out of pocket tax responsibility.
