THE TAX PROFESSIONALS AT
FLAT FEE TAX SERVICE
ROUTINELY STOP AN IRS LEVY IN ONE DAY.
The IRS has the awesome power to levy your paycheck, your commissions, your bank account(s) and other assets, enabling it to seize property without a judgment. The IRS uses the power primarily to get the attention of a non-compliant taxpayer while they collect your back tax debt.
The IRS enforces a levy by issuing a notice of levy to a third party holding a financially struggling taxpayer’s property. For example, the IRS might issue a notice of levy to a bank holding the taxpayer’s bank account, or to a brokerage firm holding the taxpayer’s brokerage account. The IRS could also issue a notice of levy to your employer which will take nearly all of your wages, or to a company for which the taxpayer performs services as an independent contractor. A levy of wages or other periodic income continues until released or the tax obligation is satisfied. The IRS sends a copy of a notice of intent to levy to the taxpayer.
STOP YOUR IRS WAGE LEVY TODAY.
Before enforcing the IRS levy, the IRS must send the taxpayer a notice of its intent to levy. The IRS can send that notice to any address in their computer, so, you may have moved from the noticed address. The IRS is only obligated to send the notice. It is your responsibility to receive the Notice to Levy.
HAVE AN EXPERIENCED IRS TAX PROFESSIONAL HANDLE THE LEVY RELEASE.
If a notice of levy has already issued against the property of the taxpayer, the IRS will release it upon making one (1) of the above arrangements. However, the IRS will keep any property already attached by the levy, such as bank account balances or accrued wages.
Once the collection action or threat thereof has been relieved, the Flat Fee Tax Service team will call the IRS Practitioner Priority Line and request the taxpayer’s account transcripts for each period in controversy. These will show when, if ever, the taxpayer filed a tax return for that period, what tax and penalties have been assessed against the taxpayer for that period, and what payments, if any, have been made against the assessment. Our Tax Attorney will request tax return transcripts or supplemental assessment documents, as appropriate, to ascertain the details of tax assessments. If you need to file an income tax return for a given year, our IRS tax help team will request the wage and income transcripts identifying income and income tax withholding reported to the IRS for you, the taxpayer, for that year.
If penalties have been assessed against the taxpayer, your Flat Fee Tax Service, Inc. Attorney will discuss them with the taxpayer, searching for grounds of abatement. We want to know what your story is so that we can argue “reasonable cause.” With your input, our tax professionals will then prepare an appropriate “reasonable cause” letter to the IRS requesting abatement of the penalties. After the taxpayer has reviewed and approved the letter, the taxpayer’s representative should send it to the IRS.
IF YOU HAVE UNFILED TAX RETURNS,
THE IRS WILL PREPARE “SUBSTITUTE OF RETURN.”
The IRS may have prepared “substitute for returns” for you, the delinquent taxpayer. You, the delinquent taxpayer, will need to prepare and file actual returns in order to reverse the damage done by the IRS through their “Substitute for Returns.”
A SUBSTITUTE for RETURN IS NOT A TAX RETURN.
A Substitute for Return (SFR)presumes no deductions or exemptions and computes the highest possible tax for the taxpayer. Moreover, a substitute for return does not start running the three-year statute of limitations on assessment against the taxpayer, nor the ten-year statute of limitations on collection of the assessment.
If there are known, material errors in an income tax return filed by the taxpayer, the taxpayer should consider filing an amended return to correct them.
PROPERTY EXEMPT FROM AN IRS LEVY.
Before levying a taxpayer’s principal residence, the IRS must bring a proceeding in U.S. District Court, and prove (1) the underlying liability has not been satisfied;
(2) the requirements of any applicable law or administrative procedure relevant to the levy have been met; and (3) no reasonable alternative for collection of the taxpayer’s debt exists. The four “reasonable collection alternatives” recognized by courts are payment in full; Installment Agreement; Offer in Compromise; and Currently not Collectible posting.
The IRS may not levy of property used by an individual taxpayer in trade or business, except in two circumstances: (1) the taxpayer’s other assets subject to collection are insufficient to pay the amount due, together with expenses of the proceedings, and the IRS District Director personally approves the levy; or (2) collection of the tax is in jeopardy.
STOP YOUR IRS LEVY TODAY.
The IRS must release a levy when proven it causes a hardship for the taxpayer. A tax levy is causing a hardship if it prevents you, the financially struggling taxpayer from paying his or her reasonable basic living expenses. In determining basic living expenses, the IRS considers unique circumstances of the individual taxpayer. Unique circumstances, however, do not include the maintenance of an affluent or luxurious standard of living.
The IRS must suspend all enforcement action, including collection action, against an eligible service member or support personnel serving in a combat zone, plus a period of continuous hospitalization outside of the United States as a result of an injury sustained while serving in the combat zone, plus 180 days following such service.
