There are two main kinds of seizure methods the IRS uses to forcibly take your money:
- Garnishing your wages or income sources for your business
- Levying bank accounts
What is Garnishment?
A Wage Garnishment is when the IRS forces your employer to send a portion, if not all of your pay to the IRS. In rare cases the IRS can take 100% of your paycheck. The IRS can also garnish vendors or accounts receivables of a business and shut off the income flow for a business – effectively killing it.
It is VERY important to address these issues right away as these cases are already ‘on fire’.
We address Garnishments immediately. At Guardian Tax Law, we are accustomed to negotiating with the IRS to set up Resolutions to stop the IRS from coming after you, protect your livelihood and assets. We do a thorough review of your financial situation to inform you of the possible resolutions and help you choose the best customized resolution for your situation.
As Wage Garnishment and Bank Levy cases are very urgent situations for you we expedite these cases without gouging you for extra fees. You have enough to deal with in these stressful situations. We defend you in a personal manner that best defends your interests.
What is a bank levy?
The IRS will do a wide search of any bank accounts connected to a TIN (Tax Identification Number) and will levy all accounts connected to a Social Security Number (SSN), EIN or ITIN.
These are VERY URGENT CASES as there are ONLY 21 days in which to contest a bank levy and negotiate for a full or partial release of funds. After the 21 days the IRS hardly ever issues refunds. State tax agencies often only allow 10 days to contest a bank levy.
We have released hundreds of thousands of dollars that were already frozen by financial institutions, returning those funds to our clients but DO NOT DELAY – these cases are even MORE urgent than a garnishment case.
