IRS Garnishments, Levies and Liens


IRS Tax Attorney

Serving clients throughout Texas and the U. S.

If you owe back taxes, don’t underestimate the power of the Internal Revenue Service. Authorized by the Internal Revenue Code, the IRS will exercise its right to collect taxes by levy upon your property or rights to property, if you neglect or refuse to pay the tax due within 10 days after receiving a notice and demand for payment.

IRS code allows seizure of your salary and bank accounts as well as real estate, IRA, 401(k) holdings and any money that is owed to you. While IRS code (Sec. 6443) specifies some exemptions from levy, garnishment of your wages and property seizure may leave you unable to pay bills and business expenses, and place your family in economic peril.

Whether you have received an IRS demand notice which you cannot pay, or if the IRS has already applied an IRS levy, wage garnishment, property seizure or filed a tax lien for unpaid taxes, it is crucial to use the utmost care in dealing with Revenue officers.
