When you have an IRS tax liability and fail to pay it, the agency will initiate enforcement actions against you. An IRS wage garnishment, also known as a wage levy, is a draconian enforcement tool that the IRS will employ to satisfy your tax debt. A Wage garnishment allows the IRS will seize nearly all of your wages each pay period until your tax debt is paid in full. Unlike other creditors, however, the IRS does not need a court order to garnish your wages.

How Much Notification of IRS Wage Garnishment Is Needed by the IRS.

You may not receive notification of an IRS wage garnishment until it happens. The IRS is only required to send a Notice of Levy once and the agency can send to any address they have on file. The IRS will mail the order to levy and the IRS wage garnishment table to your employer, letting them know exactly how much to take from your check. Your employer will give you a form (Statement of Dependents and Filing Status) to complete and return within three days. If you don’t return the form in time, your exempt amount is figured as if you are married filing separately with no dependents. Also, should a Revenue Officer be involved, the Revenue Officer can sign a "Manual Levy" which can take 100% of your paycheck.

Wage Garnishment Amount

The IRS will generally take 25% or more of your income. If you are single (no dependents), the IRS is required to leave you a minimum of $1,033.33 a month. That increases to $2,066.67 for married individuals without dependents. If you have more than one employer, the IRS may allocate the exemptions to one income source and levy 100% of the income from the other employer. Regardless of how much is garnished from your paycheck, you will still be responsible for paying income taxes on the full amount earned. Can the IRS Seize My Social Security?

The IRS can take an automatic 15% of your Social Security check. The IRS has an enforcement tool called "Federal Payment Levy Program" (FPLP).
