The IRS can seize the funds you currently have. By sending a notice to the bank of their plans to enforce tax levies on all of your known accounts. Your bank is legally bound to adhere to the IRS' alert. All money the tax levies collect is placed in a collateral account for approximately three weeks, during which time you can consult with a Tax Debt analyst. The funds captured by the federal tax levies could be released within 21 days if you make a strong enough argument to the IRS that you are unable to pay for basic necessities without that money.

In this case a tax attorney may file for hardship, insisting the IRS release a portion or all of the money for a serious reason. The IRS only recognizes a few situations for hardship; medical bills, mortgage or rent, and final notices on utility bills (cable, internet and cell phone are considered luxuries). Other instances may apply, but the IRS can deny them if it disagrees with the severity.
