IRS Levy

Can Bankruptcy Help an IRS Levy?

An IRS levy permits the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to legally garnish wages, seize and sell your real estate, vehicles and other property, without going to court in order to satisfy the debt.

This kind of tax levy is often a last resort, and can be avoided in many ways – by communicating with the IRS, creating an Estimated Tax Account, filing unfiled tax returns, or participating in the IRS’ debt settlement program, known as an offer in compromise.

However, if you have already received notice of levy against your bank account or a lien against your personal or real property, bankruptcy can help you resolve these issues.
