IRS audit letter and cash

With a new administration and a new Congress taking office next year, we should expect more changes to both policies and the IRS tax code.

John A. Sterbick Attorney at Law

There are several avenues that a taxpayer can take to stop an IRS levy, including an IRS wage garnishment. Requesting a collection due process hearing, entering into an installment agreement, filing a request for innocent spouse relief, and proposing an offer in compromise are among your options. Not all options are available to all taxpayers, however. The experts at the Law Offices of John Sterbick are very qualified to help you choose the course of action that best suits your circumstances.
