Tax levies are the way that the Internal Revenue Service gets your immediate attention. What they are saying is, We have tried to communicate with you but you have ignored us.
Levies are used to seize your wages (commonly referred as garnishment) and whatever other assets you have: Checking accounts, savings accounts, autos, stocks, bonds or anything else that you own. If you have more in the bank than you owe, the IRS will only take that amount to satisfy your liability, leaving the rest for you.
b. File a Federal Tax Lien
A levy is different from an IRS lien. A lien is a claim used as security for the tax debt, while an IRS levy actually takes the property to satisfy the tax debt. Once a tax lien is filed, it will stay on your credit history for seven years which is why if one has been filed, we look to have it released or withdrawn.
