H&A Obtains Release of Wrongful Levy by IRS

Corporate Department in Doorway

By Joe Nagel, Esq., LLM, CPA

In this case, taxpayers had a 1.5 million dollar lien against them individually for past due personal income taxes and penalties.  Taxpayers owned a limited liability company which ran an operating business. The IRS attempted to place a levy on the limited liability company’s bank account to satisfy the lien.  The levy would have catastrophic consequences for the operating business and the livelihoods of those who work for or do business with the company, including taxpayers.  H&A prepared a request for removal of the wrongful levy, which was eventually accepted by the IRS.    Thanks to the efforts of our team, the limited liability company was able to continue operations, and those affiliated with the company were largely unaffected.

We cannot guaranty success in a wrongful levy claim.  The success or failure of a wrongful levy claim will depend on the facts and circumstances of each separate case.  If you need help dealing with the IRS, please do not hesitate to contact us at (404) 255-7400 or info@hoffmanestatelaw.com.
