An all too Common Tax Levy
Imagine waking up to discover your bank account frozen. This nightmare is a reality for many, as bank levies are among the most common types of tax levies. When the IRS or state authority feels you owe them, they can instruct your bank to hold onto your funds, typically for 21 days, before using them to settle your debt. And while this drastic measure comes after several warnings, it often leaves individuals feeling helpless and searching for solutions.
Receiving a tax levy, especially on your bank account, can be stressful. It’s not just about the frozen funds but also the confusion, questions, and challenges that come with it. To help you better understand your situation, let’s take a closer look at the details of a tax levy.

The Risks of Ignoring Bank Levies
Protecting Your Financial Well-being
The Domino Effect: Ignoring One Levy Leads to More Troubles
When a bank levy goes unaddressed, it’s not just a one-time mishap; it’s the start of a domino effect. Ignoring the first tax bill you receive can lead to many other tax problems, including high-interest rates and harsh penalties that may negatively impact your finances for a long time.
More Than Just Levies: The Snowballing Tax Dilemma
Aside from the bank levy, you may encounter various tax-related issues. Unsettled tax debts can trigger additional levies on your other assets or, worse, lead to wage garnishments that can significantly affect your finances. These problems can accumulate and become a burden of financial distress.
IRS’s Tightening Grip: Understanding Property Seizure
If a levy on your bank account isn’t addressed, the IRS might take it a step further with property seizure. From your home to your car, the IRS can and will claim assets to settle your debt. Recognizing and understanding their aggressive tactics is essential to defending your property rights.
The Real-world Fallout: When Levies Dig into Your Income
Imagine living paycheck to paycheck and suddenly finding a significant chunk missing, thanks to a tax levy deduction. It’s not just numbers on a page; it’s the rent, groceries, school fees, and everyday living expenses.

Bank Levy Release FAQ
Understanding and Addressing Your Concerns
The Moment You Realize: Unpacking the Reality of IRS Bank Levies
An IRS bank levy is the IRS’s way of legally seizing your assets, specifically money in your bank account, to settle tax debts. If you see an unfamiliar withdrawal or freeze on your bank account, you may have been hit with a levy.
The IRS doesn’t issue bank levies arbitrarily. This action is taken when you owe taxes and haven’t made plans to address the debt. Before a levy is executed, the IRS sends several notices of your outstanding balance. If these notices are ignored or unpaid, a levy can be the next step.
Before the levy takes effect, the IRS will send a “Final Notice of Intent to Levy” and a “Notice of Your Right to a Hearing.” These are sent at least 30 days before the levy begins.
First, don’t panic. Contact a tax professional or the IRS directly to discuss the situation. There are often options available, like setting up a payment plan, which can lead to a release of the levy.
The time it takes to release a levy can vary. If an agreement is reached quickly with the IRS, a levy can sometimes be released in days. However, more complicated situations can take weeks or even months.
Yes, the IRS provides several notices before issuing a levy, including a final notice at least 30 days before the action.
The IRS might levy any account with your name on it. If it’s not primarily your account, like one set up for an elderly parent, you can contact the IRS to discuss the situation and potentially get the levy released.
Yes, if one account holder owes tax debt, the IRS can levy the full joint account, regardless of who deposited the funds.
While IRAs aren’t entirely immune, the IRS typically only levies these accounts if other collection methods fail. You must be given notice before an IRA is levied.
Yes, the IRS can take a portion of Social Security retirement and SSDI payments. However, Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is not leviable.
Absolutely. If you owe federal taxes, the IRS can take your state tax refund.
If you’ve addressed your debt and the IRS still levied your account, contact them immediately. It might be a mistake, and you can potentially get reimbursed.
A tax lien is a claim the IRS makes on your assets due to owed taxes. A levy is the actual taking of those assets to pay the debt. Think of the lien as the warning and the levy as the action.
The IRS can discover your bank accounts through your tax returns, W-2 and 1099 forms, or other financial documentation you’ve provided. They can also use third-party summons or subpoena information directly from banks.
A release can be achieved by paying the tax debt in full, setting up a payment plan with the IRS, proving the levy causes financial hardship, or demonstrating the time to collect the tax has expired. The smartest thing you can do is call TRS immediately. You will be educated on all the options available to you for your specific situation in a matter of minutes.
Yes, the IRS can levy nearly any type of financial account you have, including checking and savings accounts.
