Killen, AL asked in Tax Law for Alabama

Q: How long can the IRS prevent funds from going into my bank account?

Short version is the company I used to work for is being investigated by the IRS. There was a settlement reached between us from them not paying me. During this time, I was not able to file taxes. Now apparently I have to be cleared of fraud and my account is frozen so I can't deposit my checks until then.
