Protect Your Property Interests From Federal Liens & Levies
When the IRS claims that you owe them money that you have not yet paid, they may place liens or levies on your business, home, or other property. This is a common strategy with the IRS because it is often a very effective motivation for people to quickly pay back their tax liabilities.
In the case of a lien, you still keep the property in question while you work to satisfy the debt. In the case of a levy, your property is seized in order to satisfy the debt. The IRS also may attempt to garnish your wages to force payment of the debts they claim you owe.
Fighting Back Against a Lien
We will fight back on your behalf to ensure you don’t lose the property you’ve worked hard to build. Just because the IRS places a lien on your property does not mean you actually owe the money they claim. With proper legal assistance, you can often get relief from IRS liens so that you can have the time you need to repay your debt or actually fight against the debt itself.
We will work with the IRS to obtain a release of lien as quickly as possible while working through the tax issues you’re dealing with. Additionally, we will help you to apply for all relevant programs and remedies to reduce or eliminate the debt that is causing the IRS to pursue the lien on your property.
Preventing the Devastation of a Levy
Our firm has decades of experience working with the IRS to get relief from levies for our clients and we would be more than happy to help you. A levy is a harsher step than simply facing a lien. Think of a lien as a threat whereas a levy is a promise.
We will attack the claim head-on and make sure you never lose possession of your property. There are a number of ways to prevent a levy and keep your property in your hands while we help you tackle the financial challenges you’re dealing with.
Protecting Your Wages
A wage garnishment takes control of handling your tax situation out of your hands. Your paycheck is yours to keep. You worked hard for it, so why would we let the IRS take a portion of your check before it ever reaches you?
There are steps we can take immediately to at least temporarily suspend wage garnishment actions while seeking better alternatives to satisfy the taxes you owe.
This multi-pronged approach will help ensure you are able to get the results you want for your specific situation. We are not a ‘one size fits all’ law firm, which is why it is so important that you set up a consultation with a skilled tax attorney. This consultation will allow us to gather all the information and work with you to come up with an effective action plan to help get you the relief you need.
