IRS Settlement - Tax Debt IRS Tax Debt

When you have a tax debt, the IRS has many enforcement weapons at its disposal. As an example, the Internal Revenue Service (Agency) can:

a. File an IRS tax lien which will devastate your credit and could even cause you to lose your job

b. Serve an IRS tax levy on your bank account

c. Serve an IRS tax levy on your wages 

d. Serve an IRS tax levy on your brokerage account Hire a private debt collector working on commission to collect your tax debt

e. Seize your state income tax refund to satisfy your IRS tax debt f. Seize and sell your car

g. Seize your home and sell it at auction

h. Prosecute you for the criminal failure to pay your taxes and send you to federal prison

i. Impose penalties of up to 25% for the failure to pay taxes

j. Charge you interest for every day you don't pay your taxes

Any of these enforcement actions can devastate both your financial and emotional well-being. If the IRS serves a tax levy or tax seizure (IRS wage garnishment) on your employer, your employer is required to begin paying most if not all of your salary to the IRS.

Depending on the number of depends you have, you could be left with as little to nothing to live on! Once the IRS serves a tax levy on your employer it will continue forever, or until the tax debt plus interest and penalties (which continue to accrue), has been paid in full or action is taken to stop and release the tax levy. Don't ask your employer to help you out by ignoring the IRS levy. If he or she doesn't turn the money over to the IRS, he or she could be held personally liable for your tax debt. The IRS can and will take all the money in your bank or brokerage account to pay your tax debt. They can even serve a tax levy and seize your IRA, your pension, or your life insurance policy. If you have a business, the IRS can contact your customers, tell them that you have an IRS tax debt, serve a tax levy, and seize your accounts receivable.

Even though the IRS is a fearsome creditor, you have rights, including the right to consult an IRS Tax Lawyer, a C.P.A. or Enrolled Agent to help you obtain tax relief (tax debt help). That right is guaranteed by Internal Revenue Code Section 7521(b).
