Tax Levy | IRS Seizure | Flat Fee Tax Service

Will The IRS Seize Your Assets or Force the Sale of Them? YES.

Will the IRS take your assets and/or force you to liquidate assets in order to satisfy your IRS back tax debt? YES.

The IRS can, with a few limited exemptions, seize your assets to satisfy your IRS back taxes. Assets can include but is not limited to your wages, paycheck and bank account(s). However, if you have experienced IRS tax relief representation, this should not happen to you unless every other collection alternative resolution has been exhausted or unless you actually desire the IRS to seize a particular asset (for example, if the IRS levies a 401(k) account, the taxpayer does not pay the tax penalty associated with early liquidation of a 401(k) account).


If you do, contact the experienced IRS tax relief team at:


There are a number of factors that come into play when determining the likelihood that the IRS will seize your assets, including, without limitation, the amount of back taxes owed, your ability to pay the taxes back, your previous compliance with tax laws, your level of cooperation with IRS Collections, your relationship with the IRS collection officer, etc.

Before the IRS can seize your assets, the IRS must issue a Final Notice of Intent to Levy to you at least 30 days prior to any seizure. There are some exceptions to this requirement (i.e. collection of tax is in jeopardy, levy is served on a State to collect a Federal tax liability from a State refund, a disqualified employment tax levy, or a Federal Contractor levy is served), but these only apply to a limited number of situations and, for the purpose of this article, will not be discussed. In the vast majority of situations, the Final Notice of Intent to Levy is required prior to levying or seizing assets. The Final Notice comes with YOUR RIGHT TO APPEAL, however, if you do not exercise this right, the IRS may, after 30 days, be able to seize your assets (wages, paycheck, bank accounts, etc.) to pay your IRS back taxes.



When the IRS seizes your assets, it takes physical custody of the asset. The IRS collection action varies depending on the nature of the asset. If the IRS is seizing bank accounts or other liquid accounts, the IRS freezes the accounts by sending the holder of your account a Notice of Levy. It is also important to note that the account is frozen for 21 days, during which time you could argue to have the levy released, and your assets relinquished back to you. If the IRS is seizing personal property, they may hire a moving company to assist them in removing the assets from your possession. If the IRS is seizing real property (real estate), the IRS follows the procedures set forth in Sections 6335 and 6336 of the IRS Code.


The IRS has broad power to seize business assets if your business owes back taxes. After thirty days elapses from the issuance of the Final Notice of Intent to Levy, the IRS can and will levy (seize) bank accounts and accounts receivable. The IRS has to get a court order or magistrate’s order to seize assets located within the business (unless the business consents), but can seize any assets that are on public land without the court order. The IRS can ultimately padlock your business if the tax liability remains unpaid and no resolution is reached.



One tactic that I have seen some IRS Revenue Officers (tax collectors with the badge and handcuffs) utilize is as follows. On occasion, IRS Revenu Officers will make aggressive demands and threaten to seize your property if their demands are not met immediately, even though they have not gone through the prerequisite procedures to enforce their threat. What’s more, they don’t tell you that they haven’t gone through the prerequisite procedures.

In this type of situation, the immediacy of the IRS Revenue Officer’s threat is really little more than a bluff intended to bully taxpayers into making a big and unwanted sacrifice. Should you call their bluff? The answer is absolutely not, unless you are being represented by an experienced tax resolution professional who has the capability of determining that the IRS has yet to follow its requisite procedures, and that the threat is, therefore, hollow—at least for the time being.


If the IRS Revenue Officer’s demands are not met and the Revenue Officer (RO) has yet to follow the required procedures, sooner or later, the Revenue Officer (RO) will likely satisfy the prerequisite procedures for enforcement, and carry through with his or her threat. However, during this time frame, it may be possible to move the case into appeals or to negotiate some kind of alternate arrangement that will save the taxpayer from making the unwanted sacrifice. Thus, it can really pay off to have a professional who knows the IRS collection procedures on your side.


The good news is that there are a variety of different methods that can be utilized to stop the seizure of your assets. Your best bet is to contact the experienced IRS tax relief team at Flat Fee Tax Service, Inc. in the event that you owe back taxes and are unable to promptly full pay the tax debt.

Can You Get An IRS Levy Release?

It is possible to get an IRS Levy Release, but it requires following a stringent set of guidelines. Here’s how to get an IRS Levy Release.

An IRS Levy is the legal seizure of property, bank accounts, or wages that you own in order to pay your IRS tax debt. In a moment we’ll get to what needs to happen in order to get a release of a levy.

It’s important that you know that the best way to deal with an IRS levy is to not get one in the first place. If you haven’t yet received an IRS Notice of Intent to Levy, then you still have time to negotiate with the IRS and avoid an IRS levy on your wages or bank accounts.

Many struggling taxpayers are unable to pay their tax debt. You do not want an IRS levy.

If you’ve already received a notice of intent to levy from the IRS, then the time to act is right away. It is possible to get the IRS to release the levy, but you only have 30 days to file the paperwork and you have to prove that the tax levy is an immediate economic hardship. You should not try and negotiate a release of an IRS levy.

Professional IRS representation will be your best chance of obtaining a levy release.

Stopping and releasing your IRS levy is only the first (1st) step. You should be looking at settling your IRS tax debt through the Offer in Compromise program. Get yourself a Fresh Start.

IRS Payment Plan | Flat Fee Tax Service

IRS PAYMENT PLANS: Anyone can call the IRS and end up in a very bad payment plan or IRS installment agreement. If you call the IRS and request a payment arrangement, the IRS will dictate to you what the payment plan will be. Most likely, you will accept it because you are frightened, overwhelmed with anxiety and “you just want this to be over”. And that, as they say, “is that”. You are now stuck in an IRS payment arrangement that most likely will fail and you will have more IRS problems in the future. What you don’t know are the following:

1. Is the balance of your IRS Tax Debt accurate?

2. Is your IRS Tax Debt be reduced further?

3. Are you eligible for an IRS Offer in Compromise? Find Out.

4. Can an IRS Penalty Abatement reduce your Tax Debt further do to Reasonable Cause?

5. How close are you to the Statute of Limitations?

6. Can you be declared Currently Uncollectible? Find Out.

These are some of the pertinent questions that need to be answered before you agree to any IRS Installment Agreement.

1 – 8 6 6 – 7 4 7 – 7 4 3 5

Here are a few common questions and answers:

Q. What Happens If I Miss an Installment Payment?

Throughout the term of an installment agreement, your payments must be made on time. If you miss by 1 day, you have defaulted. Failure to make timely payments will default your agreement. A default of your installment agreement will cause the filing of a Notice of Federal Tax Lien and/or an IRS Wage Levy action (IRS Wage Garnishment/IRS Bank Levy). If you agreed to an IRS Payment Agreement that was more than you could really afford, you can expect to fail and default on your IRS payment plan.

Q. Will a Notice of Federal Tax Lien be filed on an Installment Agreement?

The IRS generally may still file a Notice of Federal Tax Lien to secure the government’s interest against other creditors. A notice of federal tax lien (IRS Tax Lien) will be attached to your personal or real property until your final IRS payment is made. The notice filing could have a negative impact on your credit rating. When you call the IRS on your own, while your anxiety level is at an “all-time high,” you are apt to agree to anything the IRS dictates to you, you will not be told that the IRS will also file an IRS Tax Lien after you made the IRS Payment Arrangement. Now you’re thinking that you just took care of your problem. You have an IRS payment plan / IRS installment agreement and everything is just fine. Don’t be surprised if you find out later on (when you want to purchase a home, refinance your house, get a credit card or purchase a car), that you find that you have a Federal IRS Tax Lien on your credit. Once the IRS records an IRS Tax Lien, the chances of having it lifted are remote.

Meeting the Terms of an Installment Agreement

Before you enter into any payment plan or installment agreement with the IRS, you should consult a Tax professional experienced in tax resolution.

1. Your gross monthly income.

2. Total household income.

6. Allowable Expenses.
