That’s right, the IRS can and will seize your assets in lieu of your tax payments. Now, don’t think of them as a giant pawnshop where you can get your favorite chair or your mother’s wedding ring back once you’ve paid. The IRS will put your stuff up for auction! Airplanes, boats, vehicles, homes, property, the list goes on and on. (Check out the IRS Auction Site… if you don’t see something you like today, new items are listed regularly, all “donated” by tax payers who are unable to pay their taxes).
Now, more than ever, people with tax problems need to take an active approach to fighting the IRS to clear up their tax issues and their good name. Leaving your tax problem and hoping it will go away could mean that you’ll get a knock at your door and they’ll be asking for the clothes on your back (figuratively speaking)! Wishing that the IRS won’t come after you isn’t much of a game plan, and it isn’t going to work. If you have tax problems, they’re looking for you so they can look through your stuff like a kid with a catalog at Christmas.
