Metro area: Greater Oklahoma City OK MSA
This is one of the mostly used tools by the IRS to get your attention is the IRS Wage Levy, or an IRS Bank Levy. This is a method to collect the due and unpaid tax debt from the taxpayer. As a resident of Oklahoma City and a taxpayer, you may experience this threatening step from the IRS. However, there is help available to handle such levy situations.
It may happen that one fine morning you find out that your debit card doesn't work anymore even though you had enough cash to buy a car 2 days back. This may happen when the IRS puts a levy on your bank account. You can call your bank and the IRS, but the bank Levy is usually not released under any circumstances until you pay all your unpaid back tax.
A Bank Levy strikes silently and makes you frustrated. It is devastating and it can make normal day to day living impossible. You will get several letters from the IRS about your unpaid back tax debt. You will receive a letter entitled "Final Notice of Intent to Levy" through which the IRS will inform you about their intention to Levy your Bank Account, and levy your paycheck.
Your bank will freeze the available money in your account(s) up to the amount of the levy for 21 days. If within these 21 days, the IRS does not issue a bank levy release, then your bank will remit the funds to the IRS. You will not have the money to pay for your mortgage, your car loan, your groceries, rent and so on.
in case of an IRS wage levy, your employer will garnish your wages and remit the funds to the IRS leaving you with just few dollars, this garnishment will continue for every paycheck until you negotiate a resolution with the IRS.
