|A Federal tax lien is an administrative action by the IRS to seize property to satisfy a tax liability.
A Federal tax levy is the actual seizure of that property. Having an IRS lien or levy placed on your property, or bank account, can be financially and emotionally devastating for a small business owner or family. If you take no action, the bank is required by law to freeze your assets and give control to the IRS.
When that happens, you could find yourself unable to make your mortgage payments, or unable to pay your utilities and other bills, making a bad problem worse.
Frequently we can prevent the IRS from filing liens. Contact us quickly in order for us to take a proactive role in keeping the tax lien off the public record. If a lien is filed you will be given notice of your right to appeal. It is possible to have the lien withdrawn when the withdrawal will facilitate the collection of the tax.
If you receive a levy notice, contact us immediately and we will take action to protect you. If we are successful in getting a postponement in place we will have time to examine your case and begin to negotiate with the IRS to agree upon a better way to settle your tax debt.
