In Nina Olson’s recent report to Congress, the head of National Taxpayer Advocate, addressed challenges and concerns facing US taxpayers when dealing with the IRS.

I will only highlight one of her concerns which is releasing IRS bank levies, that’s when the IRS seizes bank accounts of delinquent taxpayers with unpaid back taxes or unfiled tax returns.

In the report to Congress, Nina Olson discussed the impact of the recent government shutdown. A major point of discussion before and during the shutdown was the permissible scope of IRS levies, bank accounts, wages and other enforcement activities. Under the Anti-Deficiency Act, federal funds may not be spent in the absence of an appropriation except where otherwise provided by law. One exception provided by law is for “emergencies involving the safety of human life or the protection of property”. Although not stated in the law or Justice Department guidance, the IRS Office of Chief Counsel has interpreted the “protection of property” exception to apply only to the protection of government property and not to taxpayers’ property such as bank accounts.

IRS-FTB-EDD-CDTFA-BOE Bank Levy Tax Relief

What is a bank levy?

Are you a Los Angeles taxpayer, or a business that got notified of a bank levy? Want to stop and release the levy? Let’s start our discussion with what is meant by an IRS Levy, the term levy is the legal seizure of any property or asset that you hold or have an interest in so that a tax debt you owe to the IRS can be satisfied. This can be bank accounts in or outside of Los Angeles, other business assets and much more. When the IRS, FTB, EDD, CDTFA, BOE has determined that a bank levy is its best course of action in order to satisfy your tax debt, they have the authority to do so and do not need to seek a court order to proceed.

Legal Notification and help to release and stop your bank levy

If you have received this letter you must reply if you hope to avoid the levy being enforced and the IRS seizing your bank accounts to secure payment of the tax debt that you owe.

An IRS Tax Levy is perhaps defaulting taxpayers’ worst nightmare but it is not altogether a rare occurrence and statistics place the number of Angelinos in Los Angeles, and American individuals, or businesses who are levied by the IRS; in millions every year.

A tax levy is by no means a cruel and unusual punishment but is a logical course of action against intentionally defaulting taxpayers by an arm of the government which collects the financial resources needed to run the country.

Paying taxes is every citizen’s duty and it is what is owed to the country by a private citizen, company or enterprise. Failure to pay taxes results in consequences. However, in all fairness a tax levy isn’t the first course of action taken by the IRS to ensure payment of taxes.

So what is a tax levy, why is it to be avoided at all costs and how does it prove to be an effective tool against defaulting taxpayers; read further to know more.

Mike is a true professional. He really came thru for me and my business. Dealing with the IRS is very scary. I'm a small business person who works hard and Mike helped me see that they are not that scary after all. He was always there with the answers I needed and was very good about calling me back which I appreciated since your first reaction is to freak out and ask a million questions. He solved a messy case and worked very hard to resolve it. His rates are VERY reasonable for the amount of work he does! I give him my highest recommendation!Marcie R.

Mike was incredibly responsive to my IRS issues. Once I decided to go with him (after interviewing numerous other tax professionals), he got on the phone with the IRS immediately (as in the same day I signed with him) to squash an impending issue. And he worked directly with them to quickly come to a resolution I am very happy with. I'd highly recommend reaching out to Mike to see if he can help you with any IRS issues. I'm very satisfied!Marshall W.

I’ve seen and heard plenty of commercials on TV and radio for businesses offering tax help. I did my research on many of them only to discover numerous complaints and unresolved tax issues. I found Mike Habib through my own online search and contacted him. He was very professional with great communication, always answering my questions and concerns. Mike resolved my complicated tax problem just as he said he would. I would definitely recommend his services to family and friends.Nancy & Sal V.
