An automotive company in San Francisco, CA hired Timberline to help protect the business from potential levies on their accounts and provide a resolution to the tax liability. The business had tax liabilities with both the Internal Revenue Service and State of California. The Enrolled Agent assigned to the case immediately began contacting the State Revenue Agent to discuss the account. There was a levy issued against the taxpayer which the Enrolled Agent immediately filed a formal appeal. The Associate stressed the economic hardship the levy had caused due to the business not being able to meet its payroll. The Associate used every law and example at his disposable to disprove the levies effectiveness and within thirty days of being levied, the State of California refunded $16,884.54 back to the taxpayer.
