A trucking company in Rhode Island hired Timberline to help protect the business from potential levies on their accounts and provide a resolution to the tax liability. The Associate assigned to the case immediately contacted the assigned Revenue Officer to discuss the account, as a levy had been issued against the taxpayer’s payroll bank accounts. The Associate simultaneously issued a Collection Appeals Request to appeal the levy. During the hearing with the Appeals Officer, the Associate stressed the economic hardship the levy had created when the business could not meet payroll obligations simply because of the levy. The Associate used every law and example at his disposal to disprove the levy’s effectiveness and, within thirty days of being levied, the Internal Revenue Service released $4,166.55 back to the taxpayer.
