As far as "attached' I mean: Can there be a lien, a levy, or any kind of action by IRS against the operating accounts (this is an internet sales business) of the LLC that would disrupt the business, in order to satisfy the personal tax debt of one partner, thus stopping or interrupting the ongoing business?
Hi and welcome to Just Answer!Legally - the IRS may levy the partnership's bank account and/or properties owned by the partnership, but generally, the IRS doesn't do that - unless they can demonstrate that the taxpayer/partner is just using that account as a shelter or for personal purposes.
Accordingly, as long as the partnership is otherwise operating in a proper manner and is conducting normal business, timely filing tax returns, etc - then it likely has no worries as far as the IRS levy is concerned. However, the IRS can send a notice requesting garnishment of any distributions or other payments due to the partner in question, which should be enforced.
