IRS Liens, Levies, & Seizures
The IRS is a notoriously aggressive debt collector. If a taxpayer owes taxes, the IRS can lien and levy against his income and property until the liability is paid in full. This includes liabilities for income tax, employment taxes, sales and use tax, or excise tax. The IRS can also, in certain circumstances, seize taxpayer-owned property and apply it to the satisfaction of the outstanding liability. Such action can damage an individual or business by causing loss of assets and income as well as by hurting the taxpayer’s credit, reputation and ability to meet your other financial obligations.
