What is a Levy?
A levy is when the IRS seizes your property to satisfy back taxes https://fasttaxhelp.org/tax-liens-and-levies/. Before a levy occurs the IRS will have placed a lien on the property in question giving you an opportunity to satisfy the debt https://fasttaxhelp.org/how-do-i-get-an-irs-tax-lien-released/. There are several ways to end up owing the IRS money but if ignored too long you may find yourself being levied.
Letters from the IRS
The IRS will have sent several letters about your tax debt prior to a levy. After the second letter a feeling of hopelessness sets in and many people say that they just stop opening the letters. This is a mistake because the collection letters escalate https://fasttaxhelp.org/letters-from-the-irs/. The last letter called form 1058, “Final Notice of Intent to Levy”.
Release of a Federal Levy
There are several options available to release the levy. The obvious and most simple is to simply pay the debt in full. The average American isn’t able to do that and besides, if you had the money you wouldn’t still have the tax debt. Other options include an installment agreement but the installment agreement cannot allow the levy to continue. The best way to proceed should be decided by a tax professional and the best tax professional to advise you is an Enrolled Agent.
