The levy authority comes from section 6331(a) of the federal tax code. Whenever the federal taxing agency levies someone’s pay, bank account etc. it is ALMOST ALWAYS ILLEGAL!
The federal tax agency knows this and so do the federal courts, however because most people do not understand the tax code (it is huge and daunting!) the get away with it routinely.
A quick review of 6331(a) makes it clear that only federal employees can be levied. Then how is it that that the federal tax agency routinely gets banks, payroll departments where people are employed, stock fund companies etc. to roll over and cough up money they have no right to collect?
FEAR, LIES, AND INTIMIDATION!

Learn the truth and get the tax man out of your pockets!
