Getting a notice from the Internal Revenue Service (“IRS”) can be scary. If you receive an IRS collection notice or notice of intent to seize (levy) contact a dually licensed Attorney-CPA at Scharar Law Firm, PC quickly in order to minimize potential consequences, including penalties and accrued interest, and to begin the process of working out a settlement arrangement with the IRS. If you choose to ignore the IRS notice and to not pay your tax debt, it can have a negative impact on your credit and could prevent you from accessing a loan for that important purchase in your life. The tax problem will not likely just go away. Inaction could also result in a seizure of your property, a lien or levy filing or wage garnishment among other IRS collection activities.
An IRS levy permits the legal seizure of your property to satisfy a tax debt. It can garnish wages, take money in your bank or other financial account, seize and sell your vehicle(s), real estate and other personal property. Levies are different from liens. A lien is a legal claim against property to secure payment of the tax debt, while a levy actually takes the property to satisfy the tax debt.
