IRS Bank Levy - IRS Bank Levy Release

IRS Bank Levy - Save Your Bank Account

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is an enormous and powerful government agency. Responsible for all things related to taxes, an attempt to evade the IRS by not paying your tax debt, or not reporting income, will likely not turn out well. Should you have an IRS tax debt, eventually the IRS will take enforcement action unless steps are taken to shield and protect you.

If you owe money to the IRS, whether as an individual or as the owner of a business, the IRS will do everything in its power to recover the tax debt. The IRS may very well order a tax levy against you. If you have unpaid back taxes and the IRS is threatening action against you, contact the tax professionals at Flat Fee Tax Relief immediately. You really do not have time to lose.

How Does The IRS Levy Seizure Work?

The good news is that as an individual who is delinquent on your taxes, the levy process will not begin without warning. Think about it. The IRS is giving you the opportunity to get tax debt help. Don't squander the opportunity.

Before any of your personal property is seized, you will receive adequate notice. The steps of the tax levy process include:

  • Receipt of notice from the IRS explaining how much you owe in taxes, including any penalties, late fees, or assessed interest, and when it is due;

  • Receipt of notice that the IRS has requested payment, but that you have refused to pay the tax;

  • The IRS only obligation is to send the notice. The IRS is not obligated to make sure you actually received it: and

  • The “final notice,” must be sent by the IRS at least 30 days before any property seizure occurs. However, the IRS has no responsibility to ensure that you received the final notice.

Time is not your Friend.
You Must Act Fast to Stop a Bank Levy.

Your best chance is to get the IRS or State to agree to a full release, or at least partial, bank levy release. Once the bank has sent them the money, it is just about impossible to ever get your money back. The licensed and experienced staff here at Flat Fee Tax Relief know how important this may be to you. We know how to expedite the entire process for you. Every case is different, however, over the past couple of years, we have very often been able to obtain an IRS bank levy release for our clients within hours after they became our clients.

Once the Bank Levy is Released,
it is Critical to Obtain a Tax Resolution in Writing.

It is very common for the IRS or State to issue an additional levy and/or wage garnishment if the terms of the release are not met in a timely manner. For example, the release may have been conditioned on several missing tax returns to be filed, and by a certain deadline. If this deadline is missed, you may be facing an IRS asset seizure again. Our Tax Attorneys will guide you through the entire process. We can expedite everything because we have our own in house tax preparers that can generally E-file the last 3 tax years. The final goal, of course, is to be protected from collections and to settle your taxes for the least amount possible. That is our specialty.  


What Can I Do to Avoid or Stop an IRS Bank Levy?

The prospect of an IRS bank levy is scary – no one wants to deal with having their checking and/or savings account confiscated. Should the IRS order your bank to seize your money, you have 21 days to get your money. Luckily, there are ways that you can avoid an IRS bank levy, including establishing a payment plan (IRS Installment Agreement), settling your debt, being placed into Currently Not Collectible status, and settling with the IRS through an Offer in Compromise.


You only have only 21 days to get your money released from an IRS bank levy. This includes Saturday, Sunday, and holidays. Needless to say, you have zero time to waste.

Most people who do not pay their taxes; usually, don't have the money to pay or they made a filing error and simply do not understand their IRS tax problem.


Can the IRS Take My Retirement Money?
