IRS & FTB Levies
IRS Tax Levy Attorney
Once the IRS takes a levy on your bank account or wages it is difficult to stop. If you are overwhelmed by unmanageable tax debt, we can help you explore all of your options to reduce or eliminate tax obligations. At the Law Offices of David R. Gunnin, we can help you with penalty abatement, payment plans and Offers in Compromise.
Tax debt can lead to IRS tax levies on bank accounts, liens and even foreclosure. When you need to prevent the consequences of tax debt, contact an experienced attorney.
While an IRS tax levy is very difficult to remove, it can be prevented through the development of proper payment strategies. Our firm is experienced in asserting the rights of our clients and preventing IRS tax levies and liens.
You may need the assistance of an experienced tax levy attorney if any of the following apply to you:
- If the IRS has a bank levy: We can help you take the appropriate steps to remove the levy by creating a payment plan/installment agreement which allows you to pay off your tax debt (with interest and penalties) over time.
- If the IRS has taken a wage levy: Do not lose your hard-earned income to the IRS. Let us help you protect the financial security of you and your family via a payment plan/installment agreement or Offer in Compromise. If you have failed to file tax returns: If you have failed to file tax returns and fear the consequences of tax obligations, we can help you file your taxes and, if possible, prevent penalties. Please note that the longer you wait to pay your back taxes, the greater the amount of penalties.
If you have an IRS lien: When you owe money to the IRS, a tax lien may arise automatically on your home. Such a tax lien could prevent you from reselling your house. We can help prevent a tax lien and will pursue an appeal if one has been placed on your home.
Making an Offer in Compromise for owed taxes: Under certain circumstances, the IRS may grant you an Offer in Compromise, which forgives a portion of your overall tax debt. Typically, these are granted where there is doubt as to whether the amount of taxes you owe is correct; doubt that you could ever pay the full amount; or the collection of the full tax debt would cause you “economic hardship.” We will examine your situation to determine whether or not this is a viable option.
- If you are an innocent spouse: An innocent spouse may be able to challenge tax obligations if they were not your fault or if you were unaware that taxes were not being paid.
