IRS Bank Levies

Have you received an IRS Bank levy notice? If so, you should seek immediate professional advice.

IRS Bank Levies are preceded by a bank levy notice. Specifically, notice CP 90 or a CP 297 is sent to inform that the IRS intends to levy money and or assets.

        (Read more on Bank Levies.)

The government can even issue bank levies on property that is yours but is held by someone else.  These include:

  • bank accounts
  • accounts receivable
  • wages
  • retirement accounts
  • rental income
  • social security

Final Notice

Notice Of Intent To Levy And Notice Of Your Right To A Hearing

Please Respond Immediately

    We previously asked you to pay the federal tax shown on the next page, but we haven't received your payment. This letter is your notice of our intent to levy under Internal Revenue Code (IRC) Section 6331 and your right to appeal under IRC Section 6330.

   We may also file a Notice of Federal Tax Lien at any time to protect the government's interest. A lien is a public notice to your creditors that the government has a right to your current assets, including any assets you acquire after we file the lien.

   If you don't pay the amount you owe, make alternative arrangements to pay, or request an appeals hearing within 30 days from the date of this letter, we may take your property, or rights to property. Property includes real estate, automobiles, business assets, bank accounts, wages, commissions, social security benefits, and other income. We've enclosed Publication 594, which has more information about our collection process; Publication 1660, which explains your appeal rights; and Form 12153, which you can use to request a Collection Due Process hearing with our Appeals Office.

   To prevent collection action, please send your full payment today.

* Make your check or money order payable to United States Treasury.
* Write your Social Security Number on your payment.
* Send your payment and the attached payment stub to us in the enclosed envelope. The amount you owe is shown on the next page.

   If you have recently paid this tax or you can't pay it, call us immediately at the above telephone number and let us know.

   The assessed balance may include tax, penalties, and interest you still owe. It also includes any credits and payments we've received since we sent our last notice to you. Penalty and interest charges continue to accrue until you pay the total amount in full. We detail these charges, known as Statutory Additions, on the following pages.
