Liens & Levies

Protecting Your Wages, Bank Accounts, & Property

When you have an outstanding debt to the IRS and they have failed to collect with written notices and requests, you may face a lien or levy. A wage levy forces your employer to send the IRS a portion of your wages before you get your paycheck. Levies can also be placed on your bank accounts. Tax liens are set against your assets or property or home, preventing you from selling or refinancing. Call The Law Office of Tony Ramos, P.C. today at (210) 558-2834 if you are facing a lien or levy.

What Is the Difference Between Liens & Levies

A levy is a legal seizure of your property to satisfy a tax debt. As stated above the seizure can be of your bank account or your wages. Levies are different from liens in that a lien is a legal claim against your property to secure payment of your tax debt, while a levy actually takes the property to satisfy the tax debt. Time is of the essence after the IRS has threatened you with a lien or levy. By involving a San Antonio tax debt relief attorney early on, we may be able to help you prevent the consequences of a levy or lien. Both levies and liens have a short period for appeals, typically around 30 days. Our firm may be able to assist you with the following​:
  • Preventing the IRS from taking your wages
  • Stopping the IRS from taking your home or property
  • Stopping the IRS from seizing your bank accounts
