Wage Garnishment and Tax Levy

What’s it like to owe the IRS $17,526? This is Florida’s average tax debt per taxpayer. The State of Florida's tax debtors owe a little more that the national average.

Wage Garnishment

An IRS Wage Garnishment (Tax Levy) is a type of enforcement action used by the Internal Revenue Service where a major portion of your wages or salary are deducted from each paycheck and applied towards paying off your tax debt.  The IRS Garnishment ends when the taxes are either paid in full or a settlement resolution is in place.  The IRS may garnish at least 25% of a taxpayer’s earnings for each pay period. In fact the IRS through what is called a Manual Levy cal garnish 100% of your paycheck.

Many people find that they cannot live on the amount remaining after the garnishment is taken out, so they seek a modification.  Wage Garnishment modifications can help protect income and maintain a level that makes it possible to live. THE TAX PROFESSIONALS AT FLAT FEE TAX RELIEF ROUTINELY HAVE AN IRS GARNISHMENT STOPPED AND RELEASED IN ONE DAY.

Tax Levy - Tax Garnishment

The IRS has a broad ability to order a tax levy.  Tax levies fall into 2 categories. The first are levies directed to the taxpayer and cover the property owned by the taxpayer, this is sometimes called a seizure. The second category is a tax levy served on third parties who hold intangible property belonging to the taxpayer, such as banks and employers.

In some cases, the IRS can seize your property.  Generally in Florida, homestead laws protect your primary residence.  However, it is critical that you find out your rights by speaking with a qualified tax attorney (tax professional).

The IRS can serve a tax levy to your banks, your retirement plan holder, and to your life insurance company if your life insurance policy has a cash surrender value. An IRS Bank levy can also be used to remove cash from a bank account. Once the IRS places a levy order, your financial institution will be required to remove all funds available in your accounts up to the amount you owe, hold it in a separate account for 21 days and then send it to the IRS.  The 21 days includes Saturdays, Sundays and holidays. To add insult to injury, your bank will charge you fees to take your money. This does not allow you a lot of time to save you from an IRS seizure. IRS Garnishment - Social Security - Veteran's Pension If you are collecting your Social Security or a Veteran's Pension, the IRS can seize 15% from your monthly check. The Federal Payment Levy Program (FPLP) allows the IRS to order a levy of 15%. This levy order can be countered by various tax relief actions. However, due to the government's computer systems, depending on the day in the month levy is released you may be levied for one more month. The IRS computer must "talk to" the Financial Management Systems (FMS) which is the computer that sends out checks.
