My bank account was levied for my spouses arrers. He was only added to the account in March as a matter of convenience due to the impending birth of our daughter. I can prove all traceable contributions are from my employment. We have appeared before the court and were not given the opportunity to present our evidence and told to take it up with Lansing. Lansing is telling is too bad, they are taking the money. We have five children, my husband has been unable to work due to colon surgeries in January and April. My income supports our household l. I am now ending my maternity leave early as a result of this
It depends on who is issuing the bank levy, IRS or State of Michigan? They can both be released depending on circumstances. It is important to consult with a tax attorney ASAP as banks have to release the funds upon a certain date.
