How to Stop the IRS From Freezing Your Bank Account
Unless you relocate quite frequently, it really shouldn’t come to a surprise to discover that the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has levied your bank account. Before the IRS takes an extreme measure like this, they will have already given you every opportunity to prevent this. However, if you’ve already made it to this point, the question is not about how to prevent it—it’s about how to make all of this to go away!
Success Tax Relief is a tax relief firm with two locations based in Houston, Texas and Atlanta, GA. We have over 30 years of experience alleviating the tax debt of taxpayers just like you. We have a proven history of reducing or even eliminating the total amount of tax dollars owed to the IRS. Most importantly, we have experience helping taxpayers when they’re in the middle of a nasty tax debt situation such as a frozen bank account.
Here’s how you can end the nightmare of a bank account levy:
Pay the debt off.
Sorry. We know that if it were that easy, you might not be in this situation in the first place. However, it’s worth saying.
Everyone’s tax situation is different. Some people may find themselves with a levied bank account simply because they neglected to take care of their tax responsibility. Money might not even be a problem. It could just be the lack of discipline it takes to file the papers. In a case like this, we can help you take care of all of the necessary paperwork. All you need to do is pay the balance—plus interest and penalty fees.
File for Financial Hardship
If you are at a financial point where the quality of your lifestyle could leave you in poverty, then you can try to file for financial hardship. According to the IRS, “If the levy on your bank account is creating an immediate economic hardship, the levy may be released.”
Make Payment Arrangements
Not everyone knows that you can negotiate an affordable monthly payment plan with the IRS. They’re reasonable. All you have to do is make the initiative to communicate your intentions to pay your debt. If the IRS agrees to make a payment arrangement with you, then they will release the levy on your bank account, but the moment you default, they’ll reissue the levy and you’re right back where you started!
File for an Offer in Compromise
In most cases, installment agreements have a deadline. Depending on how much money you owe the IRS, not even the most generous monthly payment will clear your tax debt. In a case like this, you just need to get the amount reduced. When you file for an Offer in Compromise, you might be eligible to reduce the amount you owe to less than half! This definitely something worth looking into!
