The IRS has issued a levy against your personal and business bank account. Challenge:
Bank levy freezes all the funds for 21 days from the date the levy is served.
Bank will only release the frozen funds once the bank receives the release of the levy from the IRS.
If the levy is attached to the personal account, the taxpayer is unable to pay their necessary bills, fall behind on rent/mortgage and face financial hardship.
If the levy is attached to a business account, the business is unable to meets its current payroll, pay business bills and may lead to losing venders or business.
Bank levy is not a onetime levy. If the taxpayer has not resolved the unpaid balance, the IRS will continue to issue levies including wage levies, social security levies and assign Revenue Officer (collection officer) to your account.
Bank levy can result in overdraft balance and additional fees to your account.
