According to the IRS website, "We usually levy only after these three requirements are met:
- "We assessed the tax and sent you a Notice and Demand for Payment;
- "You neglected or refused to pay the tax;
- And "We sent you a Final Notice of Intent to Levy and Notice of Your Right to A Hearing (levy notice) at least 30 days before the levy. We may give you this notice in person, leave it at your home or your usual place of business, or send it to your last known address by certified or registered mail, return receipt requested."
Don't Let It Come to This
The last thing you want to do is just sit there "frozen", not knowing what to do once you receive a "Notice and Demand for Payment" or worse, a "Final Notice of Intent to Levy and Notice of Your Right to A Hearing". If you've received either of these notices, the clock is ticking.
