State of Ohio Tax Bank Levy

As part of the tax collection process the State of Ohio has the ability to seize and sell your real and personal property to be applied toward state tax debts. Additionally, the State of Ohio can assess a levy against your wages, also known as a wage garnishment. As part of the effort to collect unpaid taxes, when the Ohio Department of Taxation sends your account to the Ohio Attorney General for collection a levy may be assessed against other property you own including retirement accounts, accounts receivables, rental income, and of course bank accounts.


State of Ohio Tax Collection Levy

Bank levies or any other any other type of levy by the state of Ohio Attorney General will occur only after certain events have taken place in an attempt to collect the tax debt. Once a tax debt has been assessed by the Ohio Department of Taxation you will be notified of the debt. If you fail to respond to the Ohio tax collection notification within the specified time limits, additional collection penalties and fees may be assessed. The assessment and tax liability notifications are warning letters informing you of the need to take action to get your tax debt problem resolved as the Ohio Department of Taxation will soon proceed with additional collection efforts, which may include sending your account to the Ohio Attorney General Collections Enforcement and placing a levy your personal accounts.



Ohio Department of Taxation Assessed Bank Account Levy

Upon your bank receiving notification of the tax levy by the state of Ohio, the bank must immediately withhold funds in your bank accounts. If your State of Ohio tax debt is nearing or has already reached this stage, it is crucial that you take steps to resolve your tax situation immediately or your money will be seized. It is also important to have any tax resolution that you agree upon in writing to use as evidence in future dealings with the State of Ohio Department of Taxation.


Appealing a State of Ohio Tax Levy on Your Bank Account

Under certain circumstances it is possible to appeal a tax levy assessed due to an Ohio tax debt.  Sheppard Tax Relief assists our clients by determining if appealing the State of Ohio tax levy is the best avenue for the client or if a better resolution may be available. Below are some of the grounds upon which we may be able to help you win an appeal of your North Carolina tax levy:


    The state assessed your tax and sent the notice of levy during your bankruptcy proceedings

    The state made a procedural error during the assessment of your taxes

    The statute of limitations expired prior to the state sending the notice of levy

    You were not afforded an opportunity to dispute your assessed liability

    You have made a request to discuss collection options


A tax levy ends when either the levy is released by the Ohio Department of Taxation, the tax debt with interest and penalties is paid in full by the taxpayer, the debtor enters into a payment agreement with the state of Ohio, or the time period for collection has expired. It is also possible to have the tax levy partially removed if the fair market value of the property levied exceeds the tax debt.
