If your car is impounded can the towing company make you leave it for a month while it accumulates fees?

They can't make you leave it there, but if you cannot pay the bill to get the car released, they indeed do not have to release it back to your possession. In that case, yes, they will keep it impounded, and you will be charged a storage fee (usually accumulating daily interest) which must be paid before your car is returned to you.
