IRS Lien and Levy Relief

IRS Lien and Levy Relief

Share this

If the IRS has placed a lien on you or has issued a levy to your bank, your employer or your customers, you need to act quickly.

What We Need From You

In order to assist you in getting the lien removed and the levies released, we will need the following information from you:

  1. A legible copy of the Notice of Federal Tax Lien
  2. Legible copies of all Notices of Levy
  3. Names, fax numbers and telephone numbers of the persons to whom the levy releases should be sent
  4. Name and telephone number of the IRS Revenue Agent with whom you have been dealing
  5. Your name, address and telephone number
  6. A signed Power of Attorney (IRS Form 2848) authorizing us to represent you
What We Will do for You

When we get this information we immediately fax the Power of Attorney to the Revenue Agent and call him or her to discuss the amicable resolution of the matter and the immediate release of all levies.

You have 21 days after a bank or financial institution is served with an IRS levy before your monies are required to be paid over to the IRS. Your accounts will be frozen during that time and, therefore, any outstanding checks drawn on the levied bank account will bounce.

Depending on the amount of your debt and the nature and character of your dealings with the IRS prior to our involvement, we will be able to do one of the following:

  1. Convince the IRS to release the levies in exchange for your future cooperation through our office
  2. Provide detailed financial information to the IRS and a request for a collection alternative (i.e. Offer in Compromise, Installment Payment Agreement, or Non-Collectible Status) in exchange for the release of the levies and the cessation of enforced collection action
  3. File an Offer in Compromise and demand a release of all levies
  4. Request a Collection Due Process hearing to challenge the IRS liens and levies
Our Pledge

We promise to act quickly and do everything legally possible to obtain relief for you. 

However, we cannot do this without your prompt attention to the matter and your commitment to resolve your tax problems once and for all.

The IRS will not give you relief from enforced collection unless you reasonably, and in good faith, try to work out a schedule for payment or compromise of your tax debt.
