Tax Law:

Other IRS Collection Matters

The following describes other common types of IRS collection matters:

Currently Not Collectable Status: If you cannot afford your monthly payments and are not able to pursue another form of tax relief, such as an Offer in Compromise, a tax attorney can help you ask the IRS to put your account in a “currently not collectable” status. Once your account is given this status, the IRS will stop any enforcement action and release any current levies.

Wage Garnishment: The IRS often utilizes wage garnishment to recover penalties and taxes that are owed. Wage garnishment forces a taxpayer’s employer to withhold a certain amount of the taxpayer’s paycheck to be paid to the IRS. Unfortunately, in many instances of wage garnishment, the taxpayer is left with insufficient money to pay for ordinary living expenses. If your wages have been garnished by the IRS, our tax attorneys may be able to help. Fill out our rapid response form on the right to contact a tax lawyer today.

IRS Levies: A levy is an attempt made by the IRS to seize the property of a taxpayer held by a third party. Wages levies, levies on an individual’s securities and accounts receivables, and bank account levies are among the common types of IRS levies. The IRS uses levies to satisfy a delinquent tax liability.
