Property Seizure Details to Keep in Mind

If you have not received letters from the IRS, there is no need to be concerned about Arlington Heights IRS seizures. They will not seize your assets without warning. The IRS will notify you of your debt delinquency well in advance in hopes that you can avoid this process.

As a general rule, any asset that has equity is up for grabs. If a possession can be sold, the IRS may consider it while seizing your assets. The IRS is prohibited from seizing certain assets and earnings. For example, the IRS cannot take property if it has no value at auction. As a result, assets that do not have equity are excluded from seizure.

Types of property the IRS will seize:

  • Your home
  • Rental properties
  • Jewelry
  • Some household goods and furniture
  • Cash and bank account funds
  • Retirement funds
  • Your business

There are a few things the IRS will not seize:

  • Unemployment benefits
  • Welfare payments
  • Workers Compensation
  • Tools necessary for trade, business or profession up to a specific value
  • Livestock
  • Court-ordered child support payments
  • Certain service-related disability payments
