One of the several tasks of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is to compel taxpayers to settle their debts. Bank levies are one of many ways the IRS can force you to give them money. Such action is frightening because the IRS could legally seize the amount owed by the taxpayer from his or her account. A bank levy could be imposed on a taxpayer for any of the following reasons:
- Force taxpayers to get in touch with the IRS
- Require taxpayers to settle debts by threatening to seize their funds
- Subject taxpayers to a hearing
When bank levies are ordered, taxpayers often find themselves helpless because they are incapable of using their finances, which are frozen. However, if you are having your bank accounts threatened the IRS, a knowledgeable tax attorney may be able to work for you in order to have your taxes settled in other ways.
