A taxpayer from West Virginia hired Timberline Tax for account representation and protection from the IRS. When initially retained, the Enrolled Agent determined there was an active Social Security garnishment on the account. Immediate actions were taken with the Revenue Officer and a full release was negotiated on the client’s behalf in lieu of an alternative method of resolution. They negotiated that the levy would be released if an Installment Agreement was set up for $353.00 per month on a liability of $20,772.41. In addition, the Associate also was able to remove $4,133.00 worth of penalties during the same negotiation.
