Probably not. The idea is to get to the account while you have money in it. If they give you notice you'll just transfer the money out. * Most banks will notify the account holder(s) after the action. On joint accounts where only on holder is the judgment debtor, the account is generally frozen, and the non debtor account holder must submit proof to the court of the amount of funds belonging to them. The exception is a married couple residing in a community property state. When the order has been served, the account cannot be transferred, closed or in any way altered until a decision is made by the court.

Why would the IRS levy a bank account?

The IRS would levy a bank account if the bank account holder had not paid his or her taxes. However, the IRS wouldn't do this unless they had exhausted all other means to collect. They would first send the taxpayer a notice that taxes had been assessed and demand payment. It the taxpayer ignored this notice the IRS would send another notice letting the taxpayer know it was their intention to levy his or her bank account, or other property. This would be sent 30 days before they actually levied the account. Don't ignore letters from the IRS!!
