  • The IRS Can Increase Collections By Reducing the Time Between Balance Due Notices

    Tuesday 08th of November 2011 11:32:02 PM


    WASHINGTON — The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) could potentially collect additional revenue each year by reducing the time elapsed between notices it sends to taxpayers who owe taxes, the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) concluded in a report publicly released today.

    The IRS sends a series of balance due notices to taxpayers with unpaid tax liabilities. TIGTA determined that the first notice was the most effective notice by a wide margin because the first notice closed the most cases, collected the most money, and generated the most taxpayer responses.

  • High Dollar Cases Are Going to the Field: Meaning More Scrutiny, Aggressive Collections and Quicker Resolution

    Wednesday 02nd of November 2011 6:00:05 PM


    This is HUGE news, Beginning, October 1st (yes it has already begun), the IRS is transferring all cases that were previously handled by the “High Dollar Unit” to local Revenue Officers out in the field. High Dollar cases are tax problems with more than $100,000 owed. You can expect an Army of very ambitious Revenue Officers to start aggressively collecting and make a name for themselves.
    So, the Offer in Compromise cases that were handled locally are now going back to the central Offer in Compromise units in Memphis and New York. The Army of IRS agents that handled these cases locally will now be assigned to the infamous High Dollar cases going out to local offices around the country. Again, this is a game changer and we can expect a lot of new activity.
    Essentially, the High Dollar Unit and the OIC Unit switched jobs. Now the High Dollar Unit cases are going to be handled locally in the field by Revenue Officers in offices close to where you live, scary. You can be certain about one thing, these cases are going to be handled swiftly and scrutinized more than ever. One positive is for clients that hire 911Tax Relief, we will be dealing directly with a person locally and have the opportunity to show the human side of the case that can make all the difference in the world.

  • IRS Wage Garnishments & Bank Levies

    Monday 29th of August 2011 10:33:56 PM


    Were you aware the IRS can levy bank accounts, work equipment, personal wages, accounts receivables, various investment accounts, attach property (homes cars etc), levy accounts your attached to…. You get the picture! The good news is these levies can be lifted!

    The IRS and or State does not just come in and take your hard earned money or assets without going through a specific process. The process can go something like this.

    • The IRS sends a couple of initial notices, balance letter, demand letters etc.
    • The IRS escalates and sends intent to levy notices.
    • The IRS sends the final notice of intent to levy notice.
    • Periodically a Revenue Officer’s (RO) visits or calls with no success.
    • The IRS and RO issued a bank or asset levy.

    If you have been levied then 1 of 2 things have happened, you have ignored all letters and calls or you failed to meet agreed upon terms or a deadline. However, once a levy has taken effect it often times is devastating to individual and or business finances. Levies tend to be the harshest collection tactics that the IRS & State enforce. However, if the tax debtor acts fast and hires a qualified tax relief firm like 911 Tax Relief , the levies can be reversed

    Bank Levy
    If you’ve received a bank levy, we generally have 21 days to reverse the action and have the funds released to you before the bank remits the funds to the taxing authority.

    Wage Garnishments
    We typically need at least 72 hours to get a wage garnishment released. Most tax issues are very different therefore; some wage garnishments can be more difficult to get released than others. Because of that it is important to act fast! Contact 911 Tax Relief online at or call 1-866-499-1156. 

    Most of the time all Levy actions are avoidable if you reach out to 911 Tax Relief at the first sign of a tax issue. If you are not sure, just call, better safe than sorry…
