IRS Tax Levy, Information About Tax Levy

A levy is the IRS's way of getting your immediate attention. What they are saying is, we have tried to communicate with you but you have ignored us.

An IRS levy permits the legal seizure of your property to satisfy a tax debt. It can garnish wages, take money in your bank or other financial account, seize and sell your vehicle(s), real estate and other personal property.

If you receive an IRS bill titled Final Notice of Intent to Levy and Notice of Your Right to A Hearing, then you have 30 days to make arrangements to settle the debt before they seize.

The IRS will usually levy only after these three requirements are met:

  • The IRS assessed the tax and sent you a Notice and Demand for Payment (a tax bill);
  • You neglected or refused to pay the tax; and
  • The IRS sent you a Final Notice of Intent to Levy and Notice of Your Right to A Hearing (levy notice) at least 30 days before the levy. The IRS may give you this notice in person, leave it at your home or your usual place of business, or send it to your last known address by certified or registered mail, return receipt requested. Please note: if the IRS levies your state tax refund, you may receive a Notice of Levy on Your State Tax Refund, Notice of Your Right to Hearing after the levy.
