Seizure of Assets by the IRS for Tax Debt


While it is usually a last resort effort, the IRS can assess a type of levy known as property seizure in order to collect unpaid tax debts. Some of the types of assets which the IRS will seize includes your home or other personal real estate, a business, bank accounts, federal pensions, social security benefits, life insurance cash value, furniture, vehicles, and other assets you may have or that has recently been transferred to friends or family.


Preventing an IRS Property Seizure

Prior to seizing your property the IRS will send notice of Demand for Payment, followed by a Final Notice. First and foremost, you should not ignore these notices, they will not just go away.


There are several ways in which a seizure of assets can be avoided, including paying the tax debt in full. While full payment of the debt to the IRS may not be financially possible, there are additional methods to prevent the IRS from levying a seizure of your assets. Tax attorney Ken Sheppard, Jr. can review the options which may be available, some of which may include setting up a tax payment plan, negotiating an offer in compromise with the IRS, filing bankruptcy, or appealing the planned property seizure.


Appealing a Wage Garnishment

An IRS seizure of assets may be successfully appealed prior to the actual seizure if the Internal Revenue Service failed to properly follow its procedures in assessing the tax levy. At Sheppard Law Offices, we have helped many of our clients appeal tax levies through requesting Collection Due Process hearings with the Office of Appeals.  Here are some of the grounds upon which we can help you win an appeal of your tax levy:


    The IRS assessed your tax and sent the notice of levy during your bankruptcy proceedings

    The IRS made a procedural error during the assessment of your taxes

    The statute of limitations expired prior to the IRS sending the notice of levy

    You were not afforded an opportunity to dispute your assessed liability

    You have made a request to discuss collection options
