What is Asset Seizure?
If the IRS is not able to recover unpaid taxes with a Tax Lien then the next step is to levy the taxpayer’s assets. Asset seizure is also known as a Tax Levy, whereby the IRS actually seizes (takes ownership of) a taxpayer’s assets.
This is the final method of enforcement of taxation when all other attempts to collect taxes have failed. Notices of a Tax Levy are usually issued to employers and financial instituions of the deliquent taxpayer.

What Happens once the IRS issues a tax levy?
The IRS is required to provide taxpayers with notification that a tax levy has been issued, along with an explanation of taxpayer rights. Taxpayers have the right to appeal within 30 days of a tax levy notice.
The IRS has the legal authority to seize the vast majority of a taxpayer’s assets, but there are some assets that are exempt. For example, child support, basic clothing, and other basic necessities are off limits.
A tax levy should be resolved immediately to avoid unnecessary seizure of assets.

What is Wage Garnishment?
Wage garnishment is a means of collecting tax debt owed to IRS, so it is a form of asset seizure. By federal law, the IRS has a right to collect your tax debt by targeting and seizing your assets – one of your targetable assets may be your paycheck (wages, salary, etc). However, the IRS can’t garnish your wages until they have:
Assessed your tax liability
Sent you a bill that explains how much you owe (Notice and Demand for Payment)
Determined that you neglected or refused to fully pay your debt on time.
Sent a Final Notice of Intent to Levy at 30 days before garnishing your wages
If you are at risk of the IRS subjecting you to wage garnishment, you should act immediately.
Back to top
How Wage Garnishment Affects You
In addition to taking money from your very important paycheck, a wage garnishment can also adversely affect your credit, reputation, and loan or bank applications. The consequences of a wage garnishment are serious and shouldn’t be ignored.
Back to top
How to Avoid Wage Garnishment
The best way to avoid wage garnishment is to file your taxes and pay your tax debt in full, on time. We understand that this is not easy, and you should know that thousands of Americans find themselves with wage garnishment problems too.
A tax resolution pro can provide alternatives to having your wages garnished. There are protections in the law that can prohibit the IRS from seizing your wages, but the tax code is complicated and restrictions apply.

How to Get Rid of Wage Garnishment
Paying your tax debt in full is the best way to eliminate a wage garnishment. There may be other alternatives, however, depending on your specific tax case. A tax pro is required to know the tax code in full and all of the laws that protect you as a citizen, therefore a tax pro will be able to help you determine which (if any) alternatives might be available to you.

What is an IRS Audit?
An IRS audit is a review/examination of an organization’s or indiviudal’s accounts and financial information to ensure information is being reported correctly, according to the tax laws, to verify the amount of tax reported is accurate.
Back to top
Why Was I Selected for an IRS Audit?
Having a return selected for audit does not always suggest that an error has been made, but the IRS will often audit returns that contain discrepancies. Filing your tax returns properly will minimize your likelihood of being selected for an audit. If you have been selected for an audit it could have happened for a variety of reasons, including:
Random selection
Accuracy of Documents/Returns
Affiliated/Related Audits
If you’ve been selected for an audit, you will be notified by mail and/or telephone. You will be provided with further documentation as well as next steps.
Back to top
What Happens Once I’m Selected?
The IRS will inform you of the next steps and any reports or documents that are required to complete the audit. Audits will be conducted via mail or in-person.
In an audit, the IRS will propose changes to your return. Any proposed changes will be explained to you. The result of an audit will be either:
Changes to your return; OR
No Changes to your return
An audit should be resolved as quickly as possible.
Back to top
How to Get Rid of an Audit
There are three possible ways to end an audit. You can provide the reports or documents requested by the IRS and the IRS will accept the audited tax return with No Changes. You can AGREE to the proposed changes to your return as well as any consequences the changes may bring. And you can DISAGREE with the proposed changes which will result in an mediation conference or appeal.
You are required by law to retain records used for a filing a tax return, so you should provide the requested reports or documents to the IRS.
