IRS Bank Levy

IRS Bank Levy | California’s Top Bank Levy Attorney

The IRS utilizes several collection activities to recoup tax debts owed by taxpayers. In California, a bank levy can cause incredible damage for people who fail to pay their state and federal taxes. In a bank levy, the IRS seizes your bank account funds to cover your tax debt. Typically, the IRS will first contact your bank to notify it about your tax debt. Then your bank will freeze your account for 21 days from the time of the notice.

If you don’t take any action to resolve your tax debt during that period, the bank will send the funds you owe to the IRS. This could be your entire account balance. An IRS bank levy is considered the last line of attack by the IRS. You’ll only be subject to this extreme collection method if the IRS has contacted you numerous times without getting any response. But fear not. If you have received a bank levy notice, don’t worry. Delia Law tax attorneys are here to help.
