Did you receive a Notice of Intent? A Request for a Collection Due Process hearing must be requested in writing within 30 days of the date on the Final Notice of Intent to Levy.
So what do you do if you find out on pay day that you aren’t getting a paycheck? Well…the first thing that needs to be done is to determine if you have met all of your filing requirements. What’s that mean? It means do you have any outstanding returns that need to be filed? If you do, then you have to get them filed asap. It adds insult to injury that you often don’t have any money to get those returns prepared because they just took your pay check but that’s how it works.
Next, it’s a good idea to have some solution in mind. Do you want an Installment Agreement how much do you want to pay? It’s been my experience that what you want to pay is less than what the IRS wants you to pay.
The bottom line is that wage levies are nasty. They come at the worst times imaginable. Don’t procrastinate until the IRS files a wage levy against you. It’s better to be proactive when all of your options are still open.
