What Happens When the IRS Levies Your Wages
If the IRS assesses an amount due on your taxes, they will issue you notice and a Demand for Payment. After several notices you may receive a Final Notice of Intent to Levy and a Notice of Your Right to a Hearing. As soon as 30 days after issuing these notices, the IRS can garnish your wages.
Here’s how an IRS wage levy works:
The IRS will contact your employer and require that your payroll department withhold a percentage of your pay. Your employer must remit that withheld portion to the IRS. Employers invariably comply because they can be held liable for the amount not deducted.
Unlike a bank levy, a wage garnishment is continuous. It can remain in place—unless stopped—until the wages collected cover the back taxes, plus interest and penalties.
