Stop Wage Garnishments & Collections

If your tax delinquency extends beyond a certain period of time the IRS will target your assets and wages, and they will get what they want. With any tax debt case, you, the taxpayer, will have ample time and notice to take action to settle your tax debt, but if not, you will need help defending yourself when the IRS imposes a collection against you. When you are facing an IRS levy, garnishment, or any form of collection, you must take the matter seriously. With the help of a licensed tax attorney or enrolled agent, you have a seasoned professional on your side to suspend any collection on your assets or wages, and exercise a plan to settle your back taxes.

Intent to Levy Notice

Once the IRS decides you qualify for collections, they will send out an official letter in the mail, called an Intent to Levy notice (CP-297). This notice is a formal communication to let you know you have 30 days to contact the IRS and initiate a plan to settle your back tax debt.

If you don't respond within 30 days, you will receive another letter in the mail (CP-90) notifying you their intention for exercising a levy or garnishment against you, and your options to file for a hearing or appeal.

Depending on your financial situation, the IRS will issue a collection against your wages (garnishing your paycheck), levying or bank account, or seizing your assets (residence, vehicles, or other high-value assets). The IRS is the most powerful creditor there is, and has the power to collect your assets or wages without any repercussions or resistance.

Beware of SCAMS

Any time you are facing a garnishment or levy against your assets, it can naturally be a cause for panic or desperation. Scammers use these scare tactics to try and scam money out of taxpayers, even if they don't really owe back taxes.

It's important to understand the facts of an IRS collection:

  1. The IRS will never reach out via phone or email to issue your collection notices, only by a formal letter through the mail. If you get a call from someone claiming to be the IRS demanding money, DO NOT COMPLY and hang up.
  2. The IRS will always provide you ample notice before exercising a collection against you. If you are blindsided by a seizure or collection by the IRS, it is because you have ignored or missed their notices in the mail.
  3. Solutions are available. You may request a formal hearing, submit an appeal, or setup an installment plan or reduced tax settlement through a tax resolution professional, like a tax attorney or enrolled agent.

Take Action & Protect Your Wages/Assets

Whether you are being considered for a collection, or currently facing one, it's important to understand your options for relief. Time is not on your side, so it's crucial to take the proper steps as soon as possible. A licensed tax relief expert, including a tax attorney or enrolled agent, has the power to contact the IRS on your behalf immediately and formulate a plan:

  1. Contact the IRS and get a formal summary of your tax delinquency and/or collections.
  2. Pull your official transcripts and tax records and identify the causes of your tax delinquency
  3. Negotiate a plan to reduce or settle your tax debt, while suspending any current/intended collection against you.
