The United States government can utilize a number of different types of IRS levies to collect your Tax Debt when you owe. Of course, the government will submit to you several warnings ahead of time well before IRS Levies are issued, but it is best that you be aware of the different ways the IRS can force you to pay the Tax Debt amount you Owe the IRS, if you elect to neglect these notifications of your belated Tax-Debt.

Warnings of an IRS Levy

After the sum of your debt amount to the IRS has been assessed, and you have received a "Notice and Demand for Payment" about the amount you owe to the IRS is the United States government able to enforce a levy. Also, the final notification must have been mailed you at least 30 days before the IRS Levy is placed. A Levy may be issued on practically any of your properties to recoup the Tax-Debt that you Owe. Below, we will define the 3 major types of Levies the US government might use to collect on the Tax-Debt that you may have to pay.

IRS Levy on Your Banking Institution

The United States government is allowed to take over the available money currently sitting in your bank account to satisfy a Debt. It is absolutely within the law for the IRS to do this. The IRS will first notify your bank of their plans to implement a Levy as a result of your belated IRS Tax-Debt; your bank must abide by the IRS' notification. Your funds are then placed in an escrow account for about 3 weeks, during which you can seek a Tax Debt expert to either get the IRS Tax Levy released or pay off the Tax Debt you need to pay the IRS through any other means, eg credit cards, loans, borrowing from friends or family. The IRS Tax Levy will be applied to cover what you owe if within these twenty one days, you can't come to a repayment plan with the U.S. government on what you owe the IRS.

IRS Levy #2: Your Wages

Your wages and state tax returns can all have an IRS Levy implemented on them. The U.S. government will definitely try to contact you many times beforehand, but should you ignore them, an Levy on your salary to satisfy your Tax Debt will be enforced. Your place of employment will first receive a letter from the government advising them of their IRS Levy on your earnings to apply towards what you Owe the IRS, and similar to a Levy on your Liquid Assets, your employer legally has to withhold part of your pay and deliver it to the government as payment on what you Owe the IRS. The IRS will commonly seize between fifty to seventy-five percent of your income to satisfy your Tax-Debt, leaving only enough to pay for your basic needs (groceries, mortgage, and so on).

IRS Levy #3: Your Assets

The property levy is the third most common IRS Levy to recoup Tax-Debt. Using this IRS Levy, the U.S. government seizes your personal belongings and sells them in order to cover the Tax Debt you Owe the IRS. An IRS Levy on your house is the most commonly used Levy on personal belongings, though the government can also take and sell your vehicles, boats, antiques, etc., to apply to your Tax Debt. Basically, anything that has value can be sold to repay what you Owe the IRS. Thirty days before the IRS Levy to cover your Tax-Debt is really enforced, the U.S. government again will submit to you a letter of its intent to implement a Levy on your assets. During this time, you should try to negotiate an agreement with the IRS for a settlement plan that will satisfy what you owe the IRS before your assets are sold.

IRS Levy Dismissal

Only if you have paid your entire Tax Debt in full, you have successfully negotiated a repayment agreement with the IRS to satisfy your Tax Debt, or the 10-year limitations statute for the US government to recoup what you owe has expired can an Levy for the amount you Owe the IRS be dismissed.

You may be hit with an IRS Levy if you Owe the IRS Money. For IRS Tax Levy help, go to and contact a Tax Debt expert that can help you resolve your Tax Debt before the U.S. government issues an IRS Levy.
