Legal Question in Bankruptcy in Georgia

After Bankruptcy attack by IRS

Filed bankruptcy in 2000, included IRS, received discharge, IRS filed no claim or dispute of discharge, IRS notified of discharge. Collection letter came 2 years later. Sent them copy of discharge. They ignored and filed Notice of Federal Tax Lien for a 1998 Assessment on years 94, 95, 96. They sent notice of Levy to employer. Don't I have any recourse? Shouldn't I be able to send my employer notice of Bankruptcy discharge and have them refuse the levy? Isn't it illegal what they are doing? How do I stop them and get the Notice of Federal Tax Lien removed? It is fraudulent isn't it? If they pay the levy, haven't I been damaged? Who do I go after employer or IRS? Isn't there something I can do? Isn't the burden on them? Please help with any suggestion. I am willing to do my own legal research. Just need some direction. thanks so much, signed - Desperate
