Wrongful IRS Levy, More Time to Challenge Hi, I’m Becki and I work for
the Internal Revenue Service Have you or your business had wages or other assets
seized or levied to pay off an IRS tax debt? If so, and if you think the IRS
seized the property in error, you now have more time to file a claim to get the money or property back. You used to have nine months, but now for any seizure or levy
that occurred on or after March 23rd 2017, the time frame to file a claim depends on whether
or not the IRS has sold the property. You have two years to file
a wrongful levy claim if the IRS has
sold the levied property. There is no time limit to file a claim if the IRS
still has possession of the levied property. By the way, if you ever receive
a series of bills from the IRS including one called “Final Notice of Intent
to Levy and Your Right to a Hearing” please contact us right away. You may have options to
pay off the tax you owe instead of having the levy
placed on your property. Meanwhile, you can get details in
IRS Publication 4528 which can also walk you through
filing a claim if you think your property
was wrongfully seized. You can get publication 4528 at
irs.gov/pub4528.
