If the IRS has filed a levy with your bank, you may wind up unable to pay your bills, your rent or mortgage, your car payment or feed your family! Or, if your employer tells you they’ve received a Notice of Wage Garnishment things “quickly” go from bad to worse. If IRS takes your paycheck or your bank account, you won’t be able to pay your bills. If they take your car, you can’t get to work. And your home isn’t protected either (“homestead” does not apply to the IRS)! The IRS is skilled at using intimidation to force taxpayers needing help into adverse collection action. This is a very serious, time- sensitive matter. You need TaxProblemSolver.com to prevent the IRS from seizing your income and assets.
CONSEQUENCE: If Delinquent Taxes go Ignored, Severe Financial Hardship will Follow.
If you ignore IRS notices, phone calls and letters, the IRS will start what they call Enforced Collection. It is a way for them to get your attention and collect the delinquent taxes. Seizure of your bank account is the ultimate action in their collection efforts. The IRS sends a Notice of Levy to the financial institution informing them that you owe taxes. The IRS requires them to freeze all the money in your account(s) as of that day. This includes all accounts with your social security number. You are then unable to use any of those funds to pay your bills. This freeze may cause your checks to bounce and overdraft fees accumulate. The bank must hold these funds for 21 days. After the 21 day period, the bank must send the money to the IRS – and its gone!
In the case of a wage garnishment, notice is given to your employer (which can be very embarrassing and may jeopardize your job!). While there are some limits on how much of your paycheck IRS can take, you will still be left with very little money. Often times, your employer will fail to provide the necessary forms to fill out which would limit the amount the IRS can keep, leading to wage garnishments upward of 75 percent of your check. When the IRS decides how much of your paycheck to take, they don’t take into account how much money you actually need to spend on necessities. Instead, the law provides that you are entitled to keep (on an annualized basis) an amount equal to the standard deduction ($6,300) plus the amount of personal exemptions you are entitled to claim ($4,000), which means a single person claiming only himself gets to keep only about $860 per month! Try living on that! And, wage levies are “continuous” until IRS releases the levy. Ouch!
