Liens, Levies And Garnishments

If you are concerned about liens, levies and garnishments by the IRS and the state, you need someone in your corner who understands the legal mechanics of the situation. At the most basic level, for instance, many laypeople think of this as being garnished, when, in fact, they are dealing a lien or a levy.

Let our firm, Bendure & Thomas, help. Based out of Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, we deliver more than 40 years of experience in tax matters and appeals to clients throughout the area.

Attorneys And Counselors At Law In Difficult Tax Matters

When you are dealing with a lien, the taxing body has the right to land (also called real property) and your personal property you own or acquire after they make their lien valid through a process called perfecting their lien. A wide variety of properties can be subject to that lien, including your business and your home. Very often, however, people do not understand that until they try to sell their business or home.

We can work with you to assess your options when it comes to pursuing a lien release. Normally, those options can include negotiating the IRS and your mortgage company. The state of Michigan normally does not negotiate.

Our lawyers will also help you determine if you are dealing with a levy. A levy, not a garnishment, is generally what happens when the IRS or the state takes money from your bank account or from your paycheck.

While that money normally cannot be recovered, we can help you develop strategies for preventing additional money from being taken. These strategies often involve IRS payment plans.

Not every legal solution is right for every legal problem. For that reason, we work with you on an individual basis to learn the facts of your case and provide you with a strategy responsive to your particular circumstances.
