What is a Final Notice of Intent to Levy?

Posted on November 21, 2017

When you owe money to the IRS, the IRS typically sends a series of four notices to you, each of which gets progressively nastier.

The fourth notice, a Notice of Intent to Levy, is typically sent to you via certified mail, return receipt requested. This is the IRS’ way of telling you that it is through being nice to you and will start taking enforced collection action against you in the immediate future, usually about 30 days after the Notice of Intent to Levy was issued.

Enforced collection action can include, but is not limited to, levying on your wages and levying on your bank accounts or retirement accounts. In certain circumstances, the IRS can seize other assets, such as your home or your car. You should never ignore a Notice of Intent to Levy. We recommend that you always accept certified mail from the IRS or pick it up from the Post Office.

If you have received any Notice of Intent to Levy from the IRS, do not delay. Contact the tax attorneys at The IRS Trouble Solvers® now!
