It is important to know where your case is in the IRS system to begin the stop the IRS tax levy. Our IRS Tax Attorneys will call the IRS immediately, file our Power of Attorney Form (Form 2848) and proceed with the 1st step in resolving your income tax debt.

Some taxpayers were sent a IRS letter 11 indicating that a tax levy was the next step, while others have been sent a IRS tax levy from the ACS unit (Automated Collection System) out of various IRS offices, while others have been sent income tax levies by revenue officers in the local offices.

If you have received an IRS letter 11 there is a collection due process hearing that can stop the IRS levy.

If your case is in the ACS unit (Automated Collection System) or the local office, we can send over a power of attorney and start negotiation power to go ahead to get an immediate levy release and settle your IRS case at the same time.

It is important to know the difference between an IRS bank levy and an IRS wage garnishment levy.

A IRS bank garnishment levy puts a freeze on your bank account for 21 days on the day the bank received the levy.

You can continue to use your checking and/or savings account as much as you want during that period of the levy. Only the monies that were in the bank the day of the IRS levy are frozen by the institution.

A wage garnishment levy is an immediate garnishment whereas approximately 80% of your wages will be sent to the Internal Revenue Service until the levy garnishment is released.

Also, the IRS has a right to file a federal tax lien against any and all assets you may have. Those federal tax liens are filed in the courthouse were you claim your residence.

Final Notices before IRS Tax Levy or Garnishment: IRS Levies

Where does Internal Revenue Service (IRS) authority to levy originate?

The Internal Revenue Code (IRC) authorizes levies to collect delinquent tax.

See IRC 6331. Any property or right to property that belongs to the taxpayer or on which there is a Federal tax lien can be levied, unless the IRC exempts the property from levy.

What actions must the Internal Revenue Service take before a levy can be issued?

The IRS will usually levy only after these three requirements are met:

1. The IRS assessed the tax and sent you a Notice and Demand for Payment (a tax bill);
2. You neglected or refused to pay the tax; and
3. The IRS sent you a Final Notice of Intent to Levy and Notice of Your Right to A Hearing (levy notice) at least 30 days before the levy.

The IRS may give you this notice in person, leave it at your home or your usual place of business, or send it to your last known address by certified or registered mail, return receipt requested.

Please note: if the IRS levies your state tax refund, you may receive a Notice of Levy on Your State Tax Refund, Notice of Your Right to Hearing after the levy.

IRS Billing Notices for IRS Tax Levies & IRS Wage Garnishments

The IRS will send out final notices before levies and seizures after they generally send out a series of five billing notices.

On the fourth notice, taxpayers will receive their final notice in which they can go ahead and file with the appeals division of Internal Revenue Service to stop the levy.

Not only can we go ahead and stop the IRS notice of intent to levy, we can settle your case at the same time.

All your tax returns are going to have to be filed and if that is an issue for you, with or without tax records we can prepare your tax returns.

How IRS Settles Your Case:

As a general rule, the Internal Revenue Service will take your current financial statement and after they reviewed your documented financial statement there is generally two ways IRS closes cases.

The IRS generally closes your back income tax case by putting you into a:

1. Currently not Collectible status (CNC) or,

2. Ask for a monthly payment agreement (Installment Agreement).

For taxpayers who owe back taxes, statistics show that 40% of all taxpayers are placed in currently not collectible status, while 6.5 million taxpayers enter monthly payment or installment agreement.

Some taxpayers can be eligible for the offer in compromise program to settle their debt for pennies on the dollar.

Our team reviews every case. We find out if you are an 
Offer in Compromise candidate.

Last year IRS accepted 38,000 taxpayers to settle their debt to the Offer in Compromise program for an average of $6500 per settlement.

Keep in mind your current documented financial statement will determine the settlement on your particular case if you are a suitable candidate for the offer in compromise.

Our IRS Tax Attorneys will carefully review your current financial statement and make sure you get the best possible settlement with Internal Revenue Service.

Why Income Tax Lawyers Can Be Your Answer

Income Tax Lawyers 
Aren’t Always the Answer

You May or May Not Need a Tax Lawyer

Questioning when you need legal assistance for your income tax problem can sometimes be just as important as the assistance itself. This can be especially true when it comes to tax lawyers. While you very well might need a consultation regarding an income tax issue, you can’t assume that there’s no other way to resolve it. Since not every IRS concern requires an IRS lawyer, you merely need to consider what makes sense for you.

If you think that getting something done right means having to do it yourself, you might be correct. Because what this expression really implies is an insistence for control over one’s issues; ensuring that completion is not only competent but consistent with perceived expectations. In this respect, IRS tax lawyers are not always sensitive to conforming to your preconceived notion of what constitutes a tax resolution. This may be better understood by first asking, “What do tax lawyers do”?

Income Tax, IRS Tax Lawyers and How the Two Relate

You may have questions about a certified tax resolution specialist, specifically, “What do tax attorneys do?” There are some misconceptions surrounding IRS tax resolution. You might imagine a tax advocate standing beside you in a solemn, oak-laden courtroom, shouting objections and making motions. In reality, though, tax attorneys–and many tax professionals–spend much of their time working for you over the phone. An income tax lawyer is primarily concerned with providing you with an affordable solution; one that is within the letter of the tax law. Tax resolution specialists handle a wide variety of tax problems; resolutions depend on the precise issue in question. When you’re working with a tax lawyer, on IRS or state issues, your intention should be to secure a tax debt resolution that you would not be able to handle yourself.

An IRS lawyer, tax issue aside, can be essential to operating on your behalf when you lack the time or resources to deal with the IRS yourself. Such a tax resolution specialist is adept at pinpointing the most appropriate resolution to your problem. Similarly, professional tax resolution may involve a tax lawyer, who can negotiate a resolution that you might not handle as effectively. Bear in mind, you may possess the skill set to accurately conclude your income tax issue with results that are both financially beneficial and timely executed. But if you’re facing uncharted territory with a tax problem that you haven’t previously encountered, you might want to reconsider and get tax relief help.

What Can a Tax Attorney Do For You?

A tax attorney or licensed tax professional may be instrumental in assisting with a variety of IRS concerns. Examples include lifting an IRS wage levy (wage garnishment), intervening with a bank levy or negotiating the terms of a payment agreement. In the case of a bank levy, you have a very narrow window of time, typically no more than 21 days, to establish a resolution with the IRS before any seized funds are applied to your tax balance.

An installment agreement is another potentially thorny issue. Although you can file the paperwork for such a request on your own, the IRS may ask you to provide a detailed breakdown of your expenses and income. A licensed tax professional understands that this may not be conditional in order for you to get an affordable arrangement. This important detail can prevent you from exposing your finances unnecessarily.

If you are looking to settle with the IRS through their Offer in Compromise program, you really should use an experienced IRS Tax Attorney. Do it right the first time, or, don't do it at all.

If you’re unsure of whether or not you need professional income tax assistance, consider a consultation with a tax resolution company. Flat Fee Tax Service, Inc. offers free, confidential consultations that may enable you to make the right decision.

IRS Levies - IRS Wage Garnishments - Do You Need to Stop an IRS Levy Today?

An IRS Levy can really do a lot of damage and even ruin your life. A levy is the IRS's way of getting your immediate attention. What they are saying is, we have tried to communicate with you but you have ignored us. So, the IRS will seize your bank account(s) and/or take your paycheck. Those actions will get your attention immediately. 

The IRS will use a Levy to seize your wages and whatever other assets you have. If you own it, the IRS can take it. That includes checking accounts, autos, stocks, bonds, boats, paychecks, and even Social Security checks!

Imagine waking up one morning and finding all your bank accounts have been cleaned out. The IRS will take every dime. If this amount did not cover what is owed, the IRS keep taking your money until you cover your income tax liability. The IRS is fully aware that levying your bank account will cause checks to bounce, alerting many people that you have tax problems. But they don't care! Their sole objective is to collect the income taxes owed. Period.

As bad as that is, a worse method is a wage levy (or garnishment). That's when most of your paycheck goes to the IRS. The IRS will leave you not enough money to pay your bills, and most of your check goes to the IRS each and every week until your income tax debt is paid.

If that doesn't accomplish what they want, the IRS will pull out all the stops. The IRS will seize your assets, and sell them at auction. That includes everything you own; home, cars, boats, jewelry, motorcycles, insurance polices, retirement funds, anything of value.





Our team of IRS Tax Professionals are often able to get those wage levies released in one day and help you get out of this terrible situation. Our goal is to get you the best income tax resolution possible. That may be an installment agreement. It may be a complete settlement through the Offer in Compromise program. It may mean getting you to be declared Currently not Collectible.

Levies and Wage Garnishments Relief from Financially Damaging IRS Levies and Garnishments - Get Help Today

If the IRS has been unable to collect an income tax debt voluntarily from you, the delinquent taxpayer, the IRS will often file a wage levy or a bank levy against your financial accounts or seek a garnishment against your wages.

This, of course, can have some extremely negative consequences on your overall financial situation.






The IRS can take your entire paycheck through a Manual Levy. The IRS will seize all of your money if your are a 1099 independent contractor. The IRS will take a minimum of 15% of your Social Security, Social Security Disability (SSDI) or Veteran's check.

Unpaid income taxes can create a nightmare scenario when a taxpayer's tax liability spirals out of control. It can ruin your finances, both personal and business related, and it is astonishing how quickly a small amount of unpaid taxes can snowball into crushing debt.

Fortunately, when you are no longer able to afford your income tax obligations, the IRS does offer potential options to help you reach a settlement, at least when they consider settling to be a win-win situation for both you and the government. Despite their very deserved reputation, the IRS is much more willing to negotiate than most people realize.

One of the most useful tools the IRS offers to help you settle income tax debt is known as the Offer in Compromise (OIC) program.

In this blog, Flat Fee Tax Service, Inc. will detail for you some of the most important things taxpayers should know about the Offer in Compromise (OIC) program and how it works. As always, this blog is not intended as legal advice for your specific situation. If you  are struggling with IRS income tax issues, please contact our IRS tax relief professionals and let us analyze your unique circumstances, advise you on the best course of action, and negotiate with the IRS on your behalf.

What is the Offer in Compromise (OIC) program?

The Offer in Compromise is a form of income tax debt settlement, allowing you to pay the IRS less than what you originally owed on your taxes. It is meant to serve as tax relief for taxpayers who cannot afford their tax bill, while also allowing the IRS to collect as much of the tax debt as they can without having to resort to more costly collection efforts.

Who qualifies for an Offer in Compromise?

In order for the IRS to accept an Offer in Compromise settlement, one of three conditions must be fulfilled. The first is if there is reasonable and demonstrable doubt as to the legitimacy or accuracy of the tax liability. You cannot file for an Offer in Compromise (OIC) based solely on this condition if you have had other opportunities to dispute the tax liability but did not take action. 

Secondly, an Offer in Compromise (OIC) may be accepted if there is doubt as to the collectibility of the debt, meaning the debtor can prove that the IRS would not be able to actually collect the owed debt (such as if the debtor has no assets, etc). This is the most likely reason to be approved to settle with the IRS for less.

Finally, an IRS settlement (OIC) may be accepted based on “Effective Tax Administration,” which means that neither side disputes the income tax liability or the collectibility of the full debt, but it is clear that collecting the full debt would cause the taxpayer undue hardship. An Offer in Compromise (OIC) is often times requested on the grounds of effective tax administration when the taxpayer is elderly or has a disability.

What does the IRS consider?

Under all circumstances the IRS will analyze the debtor’s income, expenses, asset equity, and ability to pay when determining whether or not to accept an OIC settlement.

Submitting an Offer in Compromise.

If you are a qualifying taxpayer who is interested in receiving an IRS settlement on your income tax debt, you must submit the proper forms to request the settlement from the IRS. The attorneys at Flat Fee Tax Service, Inc. will help you understand what forms you must submit and present them in the best possible light so as to maximize your chances of having your offer accepted. You will need to include a $186 application fee and your initial payment from your requested OIC payment plan (unless you meet specific low income certification guidelines). Depending on the IRS settlement you are requesting, this could be a lump-sum payment of 20% of the total IRS settlement amount offered, or a periodic payment where you submit the initial installment of a proposed payment plan and you continue to adhere to that plan while the IRS considers the offer and after if it is accepted.

What happens when the IRS accepts/rejects your Offer in Compromise?

If your Offer in Compromise is accepted, you will adhere to the settlement plan that you proposed. If it is rejected, you have the opportunity to appeal within 30 days, otherwise the IRS will continue to pursue the collection of the full amount of your outstanding tax debt.

The Offer in Compromise can be a lifeline when you are unable to fulfill your tax obligations. If you are facing IRS income tax issues, please contact the able IRS tax relief team at Flat Fee Tax Service, Inc. to learn about your options with regard to achieving a debt settlement, and to decide on your best course of action for overcoming your debt.

IRS levy - wage Garnishment - Stop the IRS From Seizing Your Paycheck

A Wage Levy a/k/a Wage garnishment is typically an effort by the IRS to get some cash from you when the IRS has been unsuccessful in getting you to pay your over due income tax debt what they feel you owe them. It’s likely that they’ve exhausted all other options and cannot get you to pay for your debt within a reasonable amount of time. This situation can be avoided by following two important tips:

Remember that the IRS will pursue a wage levy, wage garnishment and/or bank levy when they (the IRS) cannot seem to get you to pay your debt within a certain time frame. If you have been ignoring them or refuse to talk to them, you put yourself in a worse position. Do your best to stay in touch with the IRS and work on setting up a reasonable payment plan that you can handle, or possibly an offer in Compromise. Showing the IRS that you have every intention of resolving your income tax debt will typically encourage them to back off and work something out for you. The income tax debt professionals at  Flat Fee Tax Service, Inc. are here to help.
