I don't know you. I don't know where you live or have lived. I don't know your background or professional qualifications. The same is true of every other regular on these boards (you don't really think one should judge credibility based on a screen name, so you?!), save for "adjusterjack" and "Tax_Counsel," whom I've "known" through similar boards for probably 15 years or more. Whether the OP takes advice from anonymous strangers (despite the disclaimer) or heeds or disregard my cautionary statement is entirely up to him/her.
The only advice they need to take from us is to read the packet that came with the levy.
