What is the difference between a tax lien and a tax levy? Release your levy today!

A tax lien is a type of claim against property that secures the payment of a tax debt. A Federal Tax Lien is a non-consensual lien that gives the IRS an interest in the taxpayer’s property (this interest will allow the IRS to seize and sell the taxpayer’s property in order to satisfy an assessment). Under В§6321, the tax lien is imposed in favor of the United States Treasury when an assessment has been made by the IRS, a notice and demand for payment has been made, and the taxpayer has neglected or refused to pay the assessment. Under В§6322, the IRS tax lien arises at the time the assessment was made.

The lien attaches to all property and rights to property belonging to the taxpayer at the time the lien arises as well as any property acquired after the lien arises. The IRS files a Notice of Federal Tax Lien to put the taxpayer’s other creditors on notice that the IRS has a claim against all of the taxpayer’s property. The IRS lien continues until liability for the assessment is satisfied by payment or abatement, or the assessment becomes unenforceable by reason of lapse of time.

A tax levy is a seizure of property to satisfy the tax debt. Usually, once a Federal Tax Lien is imposed, the IRS may levy or seize the taxpayer’s property after notifying the taxpayer of intent to levy and the right to a hearing. The property that is levied upon may be held by the taxpayer or by a third party.

– One common example is a tax levy on money in the taxpayer’s bank account. The IRS will serve the taxpayer’s bank with Form 668-A, Notice of Levy, in order to seize bank accounts. The levy is served on the bank that holds

the property of the taxpayer. The levy is effective as to the assets held by the bank at the time the levy is served (i.e. all money in the account at the time of service). The bank must hold the money in escrow for 21 days before remitting the funds to the IRS. The IRS must use another notice if it wants to reach funds the taxpayer deposited after the first levy was served.

– Another common example is a tax levy on the taxpayer’s wages. The IRS will serve Form 668-W, Notice of Levy on Wages and Other income, on the taxpayer’s employer. The authority to levy on wages allows the IRS to continually reach the nonexempt portion of the taxpayer’s wages. The weekly exemption amount is 1/52 of the taxpayer’s standard deduction and personal exemptions.
