California Franchise Tax Board (FTB) Bank Levy – How To Release And Resolve

The State of California is broke. Everyone knows this fact. The California Franchise Tax Board is very aggressive and very tough to negotiate with. We do not recommend you “go it alone.”

A California Franchise Tax Board bank levy (also wage levy) is a legal action by the State of California where funds are taken from a bank account (also your paycheck) of a tax debtor for back due tax debts. This state tax levy is called an “Order To Withhold,” FTB bank levies are difficult to release and in most situations a release is not possible especially if you are attempting to do so on your own.. If you have received a bank levy or wage levy, you should still proceed immediately on resolving your case as other collection action may be in the works.

When Is A California Franchise Tax Board Bank Levy Issued?

Tax Levies are issued to bank accounts after a final notice to the taxpayer is sent requesting them to resolve the balance and no contact or arrangements are made. Time beyond what is stated in the letter can be granted if you or your tax attorney call in to resolve the case. Doing nothing almost always eventually results in a levy on any bank account at a bank for which you have received a 1099. Often a California Franchise Tax Board lien has gets filed if it already is not on file.

Take immediate action on the debt on your own or hire a tax attorney to get things going. Otherwise you risk a FTB bank levy or wage levy. The best way to take action is to resolve the tax debt, which prevents the tax levy from happening in the first place.

Stopping A California FTB Bank Levy
Before THE LEVY Starts

A California Franchise Tax Board (FTB) bank levy is stopped when your case is resolved or pending resolution. Collection action is not stopped by filing an Offer In Compromise in all cases, but it is in most.

The four most common ways to resolve a balance with the FTB are:

An FTB Offer in Compromise is considered the best form of California tax forgiveness, but not everyone will qualify. A California Franchise Tax Board (FTB) bank levy or wage levy will not be issued if any of the other options is in place.

California Franchise Tax Board Levied My Bank Account! What Do I Do?

Release the Tax Levy, If Possible

Releasing the tax levy is very difficult. The majority of cases result in seizure of funds. The FTB issues an Order to Withhold. The bank holds funds for 10 days before being transferred over to the FTB. An extension on the FTB taking the money  can be issued by an FTB agent if you contact them and are dealing with them to try and get it released. The same holds true if your wages are levied.

There are three main ways to release a California Franchise Tax Board bank levy:

  • Prove a financial hardship (Currently not Collectible)
  • Show that the money belonged to someone else
  • Show that the tax levy took funds that are exempt from the tax levy
  • Prove another extraordinary circumstance

Proving Financial Hardship for A

FTB Bank Levy Release

Releasing an FTB bank levy by financial hardship is tough. Being elderly helps in this type of argument for a California Franchise Tax Board bank levy release as well. Eviction notices can help build your case as well. Financial hardship is tough to prove on your own. Even though you may qualify for a 12 month hardship on your case, this does not mean you are in hardship enough for them to release your bank levy every time. Do not wait until you get a better job or have more money to contact the FTB. You could get levied in the process.

The Money Is Not Mine! Release My Bank Levy!

A tax attorney holding money in trust for clients would get a release. Your grandma accidentally deposited her money into your bank. Prove it and that would get a release usually. In order to get this kind of FTB bank levy release you need good proof in the form of documentation. An explanation by itself is not going to work.

Exempt Funds From California Franchise Tax Board Bank Levies

Social Security income and veterans’ benefits are exempt from FTB levies.The funds can be released if they are levied by you or your tax attorney contacting the FTB. Other forms of public assistance are usually exempt as well. This is the easiest type of FTB bank levy release to get.

Other Extraordinary Circumstances for FTB Bank Levy Release

FTB bank levies can be released, but you must prove an extraordinary circumstance that makes sense to the FTB agent handling the case. Don’t count on the FTB agent accepting anything here.

The First Levy Won’t Be The Last If You Do Nothing

Get to resolving your case or hire a tax attorney to handle it for you once you receive a California Franchise Tax Board bank levy. Receiving the levy is a sign that your case is deep in collections. Do not plan on getting the levy funds back, but it might be possible. If you do it is a bonus.

What To Do When You Receive an IRS Notice | Flat Fee Tax Service | San Diego

What should you do when you receive an IRS Notice well the short answer is to call the IRS tax professionals at Flat Fee Tax Service. Why is that? Our IRS Tax attorneys have been successfully defending taxpayers and having their tax levies stopped and tax debt settled. That’s why.

Receiving a notice from the IRS is not something most people look forward to. You may be confused as to what the notice is saying, and afraid of the possible consequences, such as owing substantial back taxes, interest, and penalties.I

IRS Tax Debt Help

There are two important things to know about most IRS notices:

1. You may have the right to challenge or appeal the action the IRS is taking, and You usually have a limited time to do so.

2. If you toss the IRS notice aside and forget about it, you may lose out on your chance to appeal an incorrect tax assessment or to stop an IRS collection action. The IRS is also much easier to deal with when you are proactive about solving your tax problems, rather than failing to respond to IRS notices and hoping for the best.

There are many different types of IRS notices, but the Notice of Deficiency and the various collection notices are two common ones that you should be aware of.

The Notice of Deficiency

The Notice of Deficiency, also known as a 90-day letter, is the last best chance to disagree with the IRS determination of additional tax due. Don’t ignore it! If you do, you will be very unhappy later.

Once you receive this notice, you have 90 days to file a petition in Tax Court. If you have any reason to believe that the IRS has made an error in computing the tax, you should contact a tax litigation attorney immediately, so you can argue your case in Tax Court.

After filing your petition, you may not need to go to court at all. Your tax attorney may be able to negotiate a settlement that eliminates some or all of the assessed tax. Even if you and your attorney decide that the IRS is likely to win their case, you can negotiate an installment plan or Offer in Compromise in order to avoid any IRS collection actions.

IRS Collection Notices

There are many different types of notices to inform you that the IRS is about to use its broad collection powers to take your assets. Some of these notices include:

Notice of Intent to Levy
Notice of Federal Tax Lien
Notice of Jeopardy Levy
Notice of Levy on Your State Tax Refund
Post Levy Collection Due Process Notice

If you receive any of these IRS notices, you need an IRS Tax Attorney. When the IRS sends out one of the above notices, it means that the IRS is about to—or already has—seized your property, whether it was the funds in your bank account, a portion of your wages, or something else.

IF YOU HAVE RECEIVED ANY OF THESE IRS NOTICES, YOU NEED AN IRS TAX ATTORNEY TO PROTECT YOUR RIGHTS.

You have a right to challenge these collection actions, whether they have already happened or not. In most cases, you can request a Collection Due Process hearing, but you only have 30 days to make such a request.

You may or may not be able to dispute the INCOME tax assessment at this point, but you can challenge the specific collection action being taken, and either agree to a payment plan or Offer in Compromise, either of which is preferable to having the IRS drain your bank account or garnish your wages.

That is what is possible if you are eligible and qualified, should you decide to have your IRS Offer in Compromise prepared by the able tax relief team at Flat Fee Tax Service, Inc.

This is the very kind letter of appreciation that our Atlanta, GA client.

Hi guys,

I can’t thank you all enough for resolving my IRS problem. I have nothing but appreciation for the way it was handled. Your efforts from beginning to end were always prompt and effective.

I first called another Tax Service, talked to the gentleman, while talking with him; he received an emergency call from another client and said he would call me back within an hour, never happened. Time was of the essence for me, I searched the internet again and came across “Flat Fee Tax Services” I said, to myself now that’s a good name for this type of business, the rest is/was history.

I called Flat Fee, spoke to Dave Rosa, while I was a panic state of mind and stressed over the worst possible scenario, YOU managed a balance between calm and urgent, and put first things first. (Not sure which one of you gets this PAT on the back Holger or David) I was within 5 days before garnishment, you acted promptly to STOP the Levy and I thank you so much!!!

Then when that immediate heat was off, David, I really appreciate your ability to clearly and patiently make me understand the process, possibilities, and probabilities to end this nightmare.

I received the OIC acceptance email from David, on May 23, 2013, 

WOW, what a year!!!

HAPPY CLIENT

Your fee has been reasonable and I would strongly recommend your services to anyone that I know with IRS challenges.

Thank you again…if there is any way I can help support your service, by writing a blog, review, advertisement, etc let me know. I have nothing but the highest respect for the job you all did. Continued success in providing a difficult service to all of us in need of your help!!

God Bless, Best Regards,

Stop Tax Levy | Offer in Compromise | Flat Fee Tax Relief | Florida

The tax professionals at Flat Fee Tax Relief provide valuable IRS tax debt help at a very affordable fee. Our teams are located in Clearwater, FL and San Diego, CA. Our tax professionals routinely have an IRS tax levy stopped and released in one day.

IRS Tax Levy – Wage Garnishment

Stopping an Income Tax Levy and keeping your paycheck or Social Security is only the 1st step in receiving the tax relief that you need.

In the economic times that we are enduring, more and more people are finding it difficult to meet their daily expenses, never mind attempting to pay their back tax. More and more people have had to resort to dipping into their 401K Plans to meet their everyday expenses, thus creating a tax problem. The equity in your homes has evaporated.

THE OFFER IN COMPROMISE PROCESS

Not everyone is qualified & eligible to settle with the IRS through the Offer in Compromise program. But every day, more and more people are becoming eligible because of our economy.

One of three conditions must be met to qualify a taxpayer for an IRS Offer in Compromise / IRS Settlement:

1.  Doubt as to Collectability – If you do not have the ability to pay your tax debt and are having a difficult time with ordinary expenses, this is where you are.

2. Doubt as to Liability – You most likely will not fall into this category.

3. Effective Tax Administration – If you have some equity in a home or other asset and you are elderly, on Social Security or Social Security Disability, you would be in this category if not Doubt as to Collectibility.

Offer in Compromise – Tax Settlement

If you qualify for the Offer in Compromise program with the IRS, you can save thousands of dollars in taxes along with the penalties and interest. Taxpayers can have a negotiated settlement on all types of taxes, including most payroll taxes, penalties, and interest. It is the closest thing to amnesty that the federal government offers in connection with back tax debt.

During the Offer in Compromise negotiation:

  • The IRS will not execute an IRS  Levy/  Tax Levy against the property or rights to property of a taxpayer who submits an Offer in Compromise (OIC).
  • The IRS will not collect the liability that is the subject of the Offer in Compromise during the period the Offer in Compromise is pending.
  • The IRS will not proceed with collections for 30 days immediately following the rejection of the IRS Offer in Compromise, and for any period when a timely filed appeal from the rejection is being considered by Appeals.

Once the IRS decides that your Offer in Compromise is processable and that the IRS settlement includes all the paperwork properly filled out, the IRS must stop a Tax Levy / IRS Levy / IRS Bank Levy actions under §6331.

Presently, the IRS is taking approximately 303 days to process an Offer in Compromise. This information is from our latest dialogue with the IRS. Your Tax Debt will essentially be “tied up” for approximately 1 year before a resolution is decided.

If you are not qualified and eligible for an Offer in Compromise, Flat Fee Tax Relief will let you know immediately during our consultation. There may be other avenues available to you to reduce your Tax debt which may include Penalty Abatement, amending your tax returns or filing all of your unfiled tax returns.

IRS LEVY | Stop IRS Levy in 1 Day | Flat Fee Tax Service | San Diego

Flat Fee Tax Service is the nationwide leader in having an IRS Levy stopped within 1 to 2 business days. The key is being determined to get through to the IRS,  which can take hours, and find that IRS agent who will “listen” to your plea. Being diligent, determined are 2 attributes needed to achieve an IRS Levy release within 1 to 2 days. It also helps to know a “few tricks of the trade”. Flat Fee Tax Service, Inc. gets results.

What is an IRS Levy? An IRS Levy is a legal seizure of your property to satisfy a tax debt.  If you do not pay your taxes (or make arrangements to settle your debt), the IRS may seize and sell any type of real or personal property that you own or have an interest in.

An IRS Levy actually takes property that you hold (such as your car, boat, or house), or the IRS could levy property that is yours but is held by someone else (such as your wages (paycheck), retirement accounts, dividends, bank accounts, licenses (medical), rental income, accounts receivables, the cash loan value of your life insurance, or commissions) to satisfy the tax debt. The IRS could seize and sell property that you hold (such as your car, boat, or house), or the cash loan value of your life insurance, or commissions.

The IRS will usually levy only after these three requirements are met:

1. The IRS assessed the tax and sent you a Notice and Demand for Payment;

2.  You neglected or refused to pay the tax; and

3. The IRS sent you a Final Notice of Intent to Levy and Notice of Your Right to A Hearing (IRS levy notice) at least 30 days before the IRS levy. The IRS may give you this notice in person, leave it at your home or your usual place of business, or the IRS could send it to your last known address by certified or registered mail, return receipt requested. Please note: if IRS executes a levy on your state tax refund, you may receive a Notice of Levy on Your State Tax Refund, Notice of Your Right to Hearing after the IRS levy.

The IRS only has to send a notice once. You may not have actually received the IRS Notice to Levy.

An IRS Levy on your wages (paycheck), or federal payments (think Social Security or Social Security Disability / SSDI) or your bank account (this could be brokerage as well) will end:

1.  The IRS levy is released (that’s where Flat Fee Tax Service comes in),

2. You pay the IRS your tax debt (if you had the money to pay, you probably wouldn’t be in this mess),

3.  The time to collect the back tax expires for legally collecting the tax (Statute of Limitations).

A Bank Levy: If the IRS executes a levy on your bank account, your bank must hold funds you have on deposit, up to the amount you owe, for 21 days. This period allows you time to solve any problems from the IRS levy. After 21 days, the bank must send the money plus interest, if it applies, to the IRS. You could “discuss” your case with the person whose name appears on the Notice of Levy. If you do that, we will “wish you good luck”. The IRS has your money why would they give it back to you, an uninformed taxpayer? What would you tell them to “win your point”? Flat Fee Tax Service knows the points to argue.

Federal and State Levy Programs.  An IRS Levy on your federal payments through the Federal Payment Levy Program :

Under the Federal Payment Levy Program (FPLP), the IRS may levy (take) monies from the following federal payments that you may receive: retirement from the Office of Personnel Management, social security benefits / social security disability (SSDI), federal vendor payments, federal employee salaries, or federal employee travel advances and reimbursements. This program will electronically levy your federal payments paid through the Department of Treasury, Financial Management Service (FMS). If the IRS executes an electronic levy on your federal payments, the levy will take 15% from each of the payments until the account is resolved.

Manual IRS Levy (yes, the IRS can take your entire check).

The IRS is not limited by IRC 6331(h) to taking 15% of your paycheck, your Social Security or your Social Security Disability (SSDI) benefits. The IRS can issue a manual levy that can continuously take ALL of your Social Security / Social Security Disability (SSDI) benefits as well as your paycheck / wage under Internal Revenue Code section 6331(a), which permits an IRS Levy on all your wage, salary or other income [which would include Social Security / Social Security Disability (SSDI)]. The 15% automatic IRS Levy provision is a supplement to the manual IRS Levy power. The IRS can choose the manual approach if it deems fit and attempts to collect more than the automated 15%.

The IRS Can Execute an IRS Levy on your State Income refund and if you are from Alaska, they can take that “Permanent Fund Dividend” of yours.

Once the IRS Levy is Released, then what? You still have an IRS tax debt. Are you qualified for an Offer in Compromise or Penalty Abatement? Are you Currently Uncollectible? Will amending your Tax returns reduce your tax debt? These are questions that Flat Fee Tax Service can answer for you.
