What to do if you receive a ‘Notice of Intent to Levy’ from IRS

Beginning tomorrow, the IRS intends to dramatically increase the number of aggressive enforcement action notifications. Thousands will receive these scary notices within the week. Collections using new technology and aggressive techniques will likely continue to ramp up over the next few years.

If you receive a collection notice, I strongly recommend:

  • don’t panic, most tax problems can be reasonably solved
  • don’t delay, there are only 45 days allocated for response
  • don’t call IRS or take any other action that could make the matter worse
  • take advantage of a free consult offered by me or another tax controversy expert

I’m happy to learn about your situation and offer practical help, no cost or obligation. In many cases that’s all it takes to reach a solution. But if it is more complicated and you want professional representation, we can discuss that too.
