Alternatives To IRS Collection Actions

If there is one unbreakable rule with regard to the Internal Revenue Service, it is this: do not ignore or evade communication related to your tax debt. In some instances, if taxpayers fail to satisfy a tax debt in a timely manner, the IRS will take action and proceed with collection activities. Depending on the circumstances, this could include the following:

  • lien on your home, property or other assets as security for your tax obligation
  • levy, or seizure of your assets or bank accounts to satisfy a tax liability
  • garnishment of your wages to pay a tax debt

Fortunately, these drastic measures can be avoided. There are options and alternatives available.
