State Bank Levy

How To Deal With A State Bank Levy On Bank Account

A federal bank levy is when the IRS freezes monies in a person’s bank accounts for federal taxes owed.A state bank levy is very similar to an IRS bank levy and is a collection action used by state taxing officials.  A state bank levy is an attempt by the state to collect money owed for state taxes.

A levy, federal or state, is one of the harshest penalties a person can face for not paying their taxes.A levy gives taxing authorities the legal right to seize assets to satisfy the amount of tax owed.A levy can be used against bank accounts, investment accounts, wages, pensions, insurance policies and physical assets.

A levy is different from a tax lien.A tax lien is when taxing officials apply a claim against assets. A levy is the physical and actual seizure of these assets.  For most people, a bank levy is not a surprise.The state taxing authority will send the bank and usually the taxpayer a notice of levy on bank account.  Upon receipt of a notice of levy on bank account most banks will notify their customer about the state notice of levy on bank account.  Responding to these notices can delay and possibly prevent the actual enforcement of a levy.

Before a levy is issued, a tax amount must be assessed. This number is determined by state taxes filed by an individual.It can also be a tax balance owed that state taxing officials come up with when they prepare and file a tax return on behalf of the taxpayer.After the assessed tax had been determined, a tax bill is sent out to the taxpayer.If the bill is not paid or if no arrangements for payment are made, a final notice with intent to levy is sent to the taxpayer. This notice will include what funds or other assets state officials intend to seize and when.

When a notice of levy on bank account is issued, the bank is notified and instructed to put a hold on all funds in the taxpayer’s bank accounts.  If the bank levy is issued by the IRS, then approximately 21 days later, the money is sent to the IRS.  If the bank levy is from a state taxing authority, the length of time that a bank will freeze the account prior to actually sending the funds to the state vary depending on state law and state procedure.  If the tax debt is not satisfied by the amount of money seized and sent to the state, the taxing authority may keep filing additional bank levies and continue to withdraw more money as it is deposited into the account. This process will continue until the tax debt is fully satisfied.

There are ways to stop the state tax levy on bank account and prevent the state from seizing the funds in a bank account.  Upon first learning of a state bank levy it is imperative that you talk with the state tax authorities immediately before the bank has sent the bank funds to the state and to come up with a payment plan.Ifthe payment arrangement gets approved by the state tax authority and payments are being made timely, then thebank levy will possibly not be enforced.An Offer in Compromise may also help, if the particular stateissuing the state bank levy offers an Offer in Compromise program.  An Offer in Compromise is when the taxpayer offers to settle the debt for less than the amount of tax owed.

Another way to stop a state bank levy is to prove financial hardship.  In order to prove a financial hardship, you must be able to demonstrate to the taxing authority issuing the levy that enforcement of the levy will create a significant financial hardship to the taxpayer and his or her family.If the financial hardship is proven, then the levy may not occur. This does not eliminate the debt – It just stops the seizure of specific accounts.

Coast one helped me out when I was up against the IRS

Coast one financial group helped me out when I was up against the IRS with a debt of close to $15,000. My ex husband left me in a bad place financially having lied on our last joint tax return. I also had some health issues that kept me from paying my taxes and instead paying for health insurance. Coast one handled all correspondence to and from the IRS as well as kept in touch with me throughout the whole experience. I settled for pennies on the dollar and can now resume my life tax debt free. I\'m so grateful for their help.

My husband and I had about $40,000 in tax debt

My husband and I had about $40,000 in tax debt from some difficulties we had experienced a few years ago. The *** refused to make payment arrangements with us after we’d broken our past agreement following a job and personal losses. We’d seen these tax relief advertisements but wondered if it would work for us. I got an offer to help us by Coast One Financial Group.. I called them and left a message. An attorney called me back and asked if he told me for a few thousand (about $3000 I think) I he could help eliminate $10’s of thousands of dollars of *** debt. I said i’d Love to but didn’t have enough to pay them. He offered us a payment arrangement that we could afford and we did it. We ended up paying the *** $259.00 in exchange for eliminating $40900 of tax debt. We got the letter this week that our tax lien will be lifted within 30 days. This year we filed our taxes and paid them in full! What a relief and burden was lifted thanks to Coast One Financial and their attorneys. I would recommend them to everyone. They are amazing!
