Wage Garnishments – Tax Levy – IRS Garnishment
If you have an ongoing tax debt and the IRS feels that you’re not paying fast enough, the agency has the option of garnishing your wages. A wage garnishment (IRS Tax Levy) is simply a legal seizure of your wages (paycheck) so that the government can satisfy the outstanding tax debt. Typically, an IRS wage garnishment is very severe and only allows you to keep a small portion of your wages.
The IRS will an order to levy to your employer, and before the wage garnishment starts you’ll be asked to complete a garnishment form. You’ll have three days to determine how many tax exemptions you’re allowed to take, and it is these exemptions that will determine how much money you get to keep for living expenses. If you don’t complete the form in time, the IRS will proceed in a manner that works for them. With every paycheck, a portion will go to you and the rest will go to the IRS.
