What is an IRS Bank Levy?
A bank levy allows for the legal seizure of your property to satisfy your tax debt. There are a number of ways a bank levy exists. For example, a bank levy can include:
- Garnishing wages
- Taking money in your bank or another financial account
- Seizing and selling your vehicle(s), real estate and other personal property
The IRS can place a bank levy on you to settle back taxes. Therefore, if you don’t settle back taxes with the IRS, they can place a bank levy on your account. As a result, you risk your financial security and property being taken away from you. A bank levy is one of the most common and simple types of levies by the IRS. Before the IRS places a levy on you, they’ll send a notice in the mail outlining your tax debt. To get out of an IRS bank levy, you must request an IRS bank levy release.
When Will I Receive Notice of a Levy?
Taxpayers typically receive IRS bank levies if they need to settle back taxes. Likewise, the IRS will usually levy only after these requirements have been met:
The IRS assesses the tax owed and sends a Notice and Demand for Payment. In other words, the IRS sends you a tax bill before they enact an IRS bank levy.
The taxpayer neglects or refuses to settle tax debt.
Next, if you refuse to pay, the IRS sends a Final Notice of Intent to Levy. Similarly, the IRS will send a Notice of Your Right to A Hearing 30 days before the bank levy.
To get out of an IRS bank levy, you must request a bank levy release. A tax relief professional can help you with that request.
How Does the IRS Notify Me?
There are several ways the IRS will notify you of a bank levy. First, the IRS may notify you of your IRS bank levy in person. Alternatively, the IRS may leave your bank levy notice at your home or place of business. Similarly, the IRS could send your bank levy notice to your last known address by certified mail. The IRS can also choose to levy your state tax refund. However, if they choose to levy your refund, they’ll send you a Notice of Levy on Your State Tax Refund. After that, you’ll get a Notice of Your Right to Hearing after the levy. It’s important to understand what kind of levy you’re under when you receive the notice. Similarly, it’s imperative that you get in touch with a tax resolution professional immediately. Alternatively, ignoring your IRS bank levy notices can get you in deeper financial trouble.
What Can The IRS Levy?
If you don’t settle tax debt, the IRS can make arrangements to place a bank levy on your account. The IRS may levy any property or right to property you own. Similarly, the IRS can levy any property you may have an interest in. For instance, the IRS can levy property that is yours but held by someone else. In other words, the IRS can levy assets such as:
- Retirement accounts
- Bank accounts
- Rental income
- Accounts receivables
- The cash loan value of life insurance
Alternatively, the IRS can also seize and sell the property that you hold, including:
- A vehicle
- House or vacation home
At FinishLine Tax Solutions, we understand how valuable all of the above assets are to you and your family. Likewise, we know how hard it can be when the IRS takes these valuables away. However, we’re here to help.
What is a Bank Levy Release?

However, the professionals at FinishLine Tax Solutions can do this for you. But, it’s important to remember that getting the IRS to release the levy on your account isn’t always that easy.

How Can I Request a Bank Levy Release?
There are a few main criteria the IRS uses to determine if it can issue an IRS bank levy release. For instance, if the IRS determines the levy will cause immediate economic hardship, they can release it. Similarly, the IRS must issue a bank levy release if it determines that:
- You settled back taxes.
- The collection period ended prior to the bank levy being issued.
- You’ll be able to pay your taxes as a result of the bank levy release.
- The taxpayer enters into an Installment Agreement and the agreement terms don’t allow for the levy to continue.
- If the bank levy creates an economic hardship, the IRS will release it. In other words, you can get a bank levy release if it’s hard for you to pay for basic expenses.
- The value of the property is more than you owe.
What Does A Bank Levy Release Mean?
It’s important to note that a bank levy release doesn’t mean you don’t have to settle back taxes. In contrast, a bank levy release means the IRS will release your personal assets so you can settle tax debt. However, you must still make arrangements with the IRS to settle back taxes or a levy will be reissued.

How Do I Avoid A Bank Levy?
Taxpayers can avoid an IRS bank levy before it happens. For instance, you can file your tax returns on time and pay your taxes when you’re due. Likewise, if you need more time to file, you can request an extension. Alternatively, if you’re unable to pay your taxes, you can work with the IRS on a tax relief plan. The key here is to be as proactive as you can with your taxes. In addition, the IRS offers many ways to settle back taxes if you can’t pay what you owe upfront. The professionals at FinishLine Tax Solutions can help you navigate settling back taxes. In other words, staying on top of your current or back taxes can help you avoid a bank levy.
Settling Back Taxes
The IRS offers many ways to settle back taxes. For instance, if you can’t pay what you owe, you can:
- Set up a payment plan.
- Settle tax debt for less than the full amount you owe.
- File for Currently Not Collectible if you’re experiencing economic hardship.
- Apply for an Offer in Compromise, and more.
The IRS understands that not everyone has the ability to pay back their tax debt in full. For that reason, they came up with programs like the Fresh Start program to help people settle back taxes.
