    Default Tax Levy on Bank Account Over 12-Year-Old Tax Arrears

    Hello...

    This Levy took place about 8 Months ago where I was forced into a payment agreement of 50.00 Dollars Per Month although my ONLY source of income is SSD (Social Security Disability) Now, before I became disabled, I worked for Ford Motor Company for 18 Years making 140,000 per Year, so I surely paid into the system ten fold! My question is, can the IRS do this after 12 Years!! I had no idea that I owed anything (1,500.00) since I always got money back, what gives?? Was there a mistake on their end at some point that allowed me to get money back each Year only to bag me 12 Years later which I really cannot swing this payment, too much, its been a problem to pay this and now I really cannot do it anymore..

    Please advise

    Thanks a bunch!

    The IRS is permitted to collect from SSDI.

    This doesn't make sense. It was past the 10 year statute of limitations. The IRS also doesn't wait 12 years to put a levy in place...are you sure that this isn't purely a state levy?

    Any Ford employee who became disabled would have more income than just SSDI. How odd.

    I remember the news stories about how thousands of GM employees lined up for food stamps when GM went on strike. Just because they earned a lot of money, did not mean they knew how to use it wisely.
