Nearly everyone who calls us at Flat Fee Tax Service, Inc. for their free and confidential consultation has an IRS wage garnishment. An IRS wage garnishment/wage levy is when the IRS orders your employer to withhold a percentage of your wages or earnings and send it to the IRS in order to pay your past due to income tax debt. However, it is not just limited to employer-employee relationships.
If you are self- employed and owe back taxes, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) can direct your clients, suppliers and anyone that owes you money, etc. “to send it” to the IRS to satisfy a back income tax debt.
For example, if you are a real estate salesperson or insurance agent and you are owed a commission from the sale of a property or the renewal of your clients policies, the IRS can legally require that your commission and future commissions be sent to the IRS until such time that your past due income tax debt problem is satisfied.
How an IRS Wage Garnishment Is Enforced:
In order for the IRS to garnish your wages or earnings, the IRS issues a formal notice (IRS Form 668-W) to your employer directing them to withhold a percentage of your wages. At the same time, the IRS will notify you by mail of the wage garnishment. Typically, you will receive two letters. First, you will receive a “Notice of Intent to Levy Wages.” If you ignore the first letter, you will then receive a “Final Notice of Intent to Levy Wages.”
If you do not take positive steps and action to remedy your past due income tax problems, your employer will be legally obligated to garnish your paycheck until such time that either your past due income tax debt is paid off or you resolve the income tax debt problem.
Unlike a bank levy (1-time deal), a wage garnishment is continuous. In other words, the IRS wage garnishment will not be lifted by the taxing authority until such time that the overdue income tax debt is satisfied or resolved.
