Wages Levies/Garnishments

Call a Top Tax Lawyer in Georgia

Have you received a notice from the IRS about back taxes? Have you ignored their notices and still owe the IRS money? While facing the IRS may be scary, it is not ideal to ignore them. If you do not pay your taxes or make any arrangements to settle your tax debt, the IRS can legally seize your property to repay the amount of taxes you owe.

Anything you own or have interest in can potentially be levied such as:

  1. Your car, boat, house, or any other personal property
  2. Any property that is yours but is held by someone / something else

If your wages or property has been levied, please do not hesitate to contact Alex Simanovsky & Associates, LLC. Our proven Georgia tax law firm has helped 12,000+ consumers overcome their tax problems and resume living debt-free lives.

When the IRS Can Levy Your Wages

While some people may think the IRS can levy your wages whenever they wish, they can only levy wages after the following three requirements are met:

  • They sent you a "Notice and Demand for Payment"
  • You did not pay the tax or refused to pay said tax
  • They sent you a "Final Notice of Intent to Levy and Notice of Your Right to A Hearing" at least 30 days before the levy took affect

The intent to levy notice can be given in person, left at your home or place of business, or sent via mail to your last known address. If the levy on your bank account or wages is causing you hardship, you must contact the IRS immediately and explain your situation. The IRS can release the levy if they agree it is causing you hardship, but you will still be held accountable for the taxes you owe.

You must work with the IRS to establish a payment plan or another tax resolution option. At Alex Simanovsky & Associates, we can help you resolve all your tax issues, regardless of how complicated they may be. If you are facing a wage levy, we can ensure your rights are protected and help remove the levy within a timely manner.
