Resolving Tax Liens & Levies
Fighting the IRS for Palm Beach County Residents
In tax law there are several ways that real or personal property may be directly affected by the IRS. One method is a tax lien which can be imposed on your property in order to secure the payment of your tax debt. This occurs when a person neglects or refuses to pay their taxes and any additional costs connected with them such as interest or penalties. This lien can be held in place until your debt is fully satisfied.
A levy is a more serious action in that it allows the IRS to seize your property in order to pay off the debt you owe to them. By property is meant items such as your home, boat, vehicle, bank accounts, wages (as in wage garnishment), retirement accounts and the like. This action can be accomplished without the IRS having to receive permission from the courts and a Notice of Intent to Levy is given by the IRS at least 30 days before they actually seize your property.
If you have been assessed with a lien or levy, quickly contact a knowledgeable Palm Beach County tax attorney for proven assistance. Your property is at stake and while tax problems can be successfully resolved, it is important to act quickly.
