Chicagoland IRS Seizures

Property Seizure Details to Keep in Mind

Your community will be aware of your IRS seizure. When the IRS seizes your assets, they intend to sell them at auction as quickly as possible, frequently for less than half the value. They can sell items rapidly because they advertise them in local newspapers and public advertising.

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
