It is daunting to realize that the IRS has put a levy on your bank account. It’s going to change your and your family’s life greatly. What is there to do?

Click here to read or watch more IRS Problem resources.

These are some reasons why the IRS would put a levy on your account:

Unsettled tax to the IRS

Unfiled tax returns to the IRS

Your IRS notices haven’t been received because you moved.

Your installment agreement with the IRS was not honored.

The IRS employs levies as a way to punish you, the taxpayer, for not paying taxes. A Notice of Levy will be served to the bank and is attached to your account. All of it can be taken by the IRS. The bank, though, doesn’t have to give the funds to the IRS for twenty-one days. The levy’s date is the start of the 21 days. Move quickly. You have to make arrangements with the IRS about your taxes before the waiting period is up. You can’t use the money in your account, however, until the IRS cancels the levy.

Release of a IRS Bank Levy (Bank Account Levy)

One of these can release a bank account levy:

Offer in compromise, file for bankruptcy, or pay your taxes in full

Prove that the statute of limitations for collections have expired if ten years have lapsed from the assessment date.

Prove to the IRS that the taxes can be settled if the levy is released.

An installment deal

Prove that the levy will result in financial hardship.

The money is more than what you need to pay to the IRS.

Find out how to qualify in any of these categories. You should contact the IRS officer in charge of the levy. If this doesn’t work, make an appointment with the supervisor. Provide the information necessary, make arrangements to settle your taxes, or ask for an appeal. If this all seems daunting, then you may want to call someone such as Tampa Tax Attorney, Darrin T.
