Stop Mesa AZ IRS Levy

Jonah and the whale—A story about an Old Testament prophet who refused to accept his divine mission and left on a sea voyage.  God caused a storm and the sailors threw him overboard in an attempt to save their ship. Jonah was swallowed by a whale for three days and vomited out on dry land.  Grateful that his life was spared, Jonah took up his mission from God.

There are some parallels between Jonah and many of our Mesa AZ IRS levy clients. If you consider the whale to be the IRS, many of our clients refuse to accept the fact that they have to deal with the matter until it becomes a crisis.  Until they are in the so called “belly” of the IRS—under a wage garnishment or Mesa AZ IRS levy or seizure of assets—they have chosen to ignore their IRS problem.

If you are in a situation where you now recognize that you need professional help to stop your Mesa AZ IRS Levy, call Scott Allen E.A. for an immediate free initial consultation.  Scott Allen E.A. can be reached at 480-926-9300.  Scott is an experienced expert on stopping IRS levy or IRS wage garnishment as quickly as possible.  He give the highest priority for clients in a crisis or levy situation with the IRS.

See how Scott Allen E.A. was able to stop Mesa AZ IRS Levy for his client Thomas. Thomas owed back taxes for ten different tax years totaling more than $200,000. His payment plan entered into default territory and he received ten letters from the IRS all in the same day that stated, “intent to levy”. Scott Allen E.A. was able to step in for him as Power of Attorney, pause collection activity and get his payment plan agreement back on track for him. View a copy of his IRS letter below.

Discharging Tax in Bankruptcy Chandler AZ

1)      Filing a bankruptcy will immediately stop all levy and seizure action.  Levies against wages and bank accounts are released.

2)      The IRS has no decision power on bankruptcy matters.  If you can file a bankruptcy and the taxes are qualified for discharge, the bankruptcy option will work every time.

3)      Bankruptcy takes care of not only the tax due but also interest and penalties.

4)      Offers are becoming increasingly difficult to get IRS acceptance.

5)      Discharging tax in bankruptcy Chandler AZ can solve both your tax and not tax debt.  If you have significant credit card debt, a judgment against you or large medical bills, filing a bankruptcy can resolve all of your debt issues.

6)      An offer in compromise will only take care of your IRS debt.  If you owe state taxes, the option of filing bankruptcy to discharge federal and state taxes is a major advantage over filing an offer in compromise.

STOP IRS ACTION – Can the IRS take my social security check?

The IRS took my Social Security check

Many retired people in recent years have called my office to ask if the IRS could levy their social security check?  The answer is yes; up to 15%.  Before this occurs the IRS will send you a CP 91 letter—Final Notice Before Levy on Social Security Benefits.  You have 30 days from the date of the notice to reach a settlement with the IRS or the levy will begin.

If we can show the IRS that the garnishment creates a hardship, your account will be considered not collectible as long as you file and full pay any taxes due in the future.   The IRS allows you a reasonable amount for rent, food, utilities medical care and automobile expenses.

Once a levy on social security has started, it can take a month or two to get it stopped.  If you receive a CP 91 letter in the mail, call my office immediately to see what can be done before the levy begins.

WAGE GARNISHMENT AND IRS LEVY

Ways to stop Wage Garnishment and IRS Levy

When clients contact us about a garnishment or levy by the IRS on their wages they want it removed as quickly as possible. I understand that, but it is also prudent to make sure that any “posturing” that will help the situation long term is done first.

The IRS will allow reasonable amounts for living expenses before considering what amount is available for one’s historical tax debt. Before agreeing to a monthly payment plan to get the levy released, there are a number of posturing items to resolve as quickly as possible.

First, make sure your withholdings on your pay check is correct. If you are claiming too many exemptions, correct you W-4 form immediately so that you will not owe any taxes when you file the current year return. Every additional dollar you have withheld will reduce your monthly payment by exactly the same amount.

Second, if you have a car that needs to be replaced or one that you own free and clear, you may want to consider getting a new or newer vehicle. Once you are locked in on a monthly payment amount, the IRS will file a tax lien and the lien will make it next to impossible to get a car loan. If you have an old vehicle that you own free and clear and you turn it in for a newer car, the payments you make will reduce the amount you have to pay on your historical tax debt dollar for dollar up to a certain amount. Right now that amount is $588.

Thirdly, if you don’t have health insurance consider getting a policy. Again, you reduce your monthly payment to the IRS on your past tax debt dollar for dollar on the cost of your insurance premiums. If you want health insurance instead of making a higher monthly payment to the IRS you will need to do this before the installment arrangement is entered into.

It is not possible in a short blog to list all of the items one needs to consider. Posturing can lower the amount the IRS will consider for an Offer in Compromise. It can qualify you for non-collectible status, and it can make it possible for you to discharge your taxes in bankruptcy and make no payment at all to the IRS on your past debt. Remember that these suggestions are not universal and need to be reviewed with a professional after making your representative knowledgeable of your financial affairs. Call and speak with Scott today do discuss the best settlement option for you.
