IRS Wage Garnishment (Wage Levy)

If you are a salaried employee, an hourly worker, a commissioned salesperson, on Social Security or Social Security Disability (SSDI), the wage garnishment is a favorite and extremely effective tool the IRS has to collect a back tax debt.

What is an IRS Wage Garnishment (IRS Levy)

An IRS wage garnishment is an order directing your employer or the Social Security Administration to withhold a specified amount from your pay or Social Security benefit and send it to the IRS. An IRS wage garnishment (IRS Levy) will remain in effect until it is released/stopped or the debt is paid in full. An IRS Wage Garnishment will typically will leave you with very little money to live on until there is a disposition on your tax liability.

IRS Final Notice

How is the amount of an IRS Wage Garnishment Determined

The IRS will seize all of your paycheck, wages except for a specific amount that is considered to be exempt from the wage levy. Social Security is limited to 15% through the Federal Payment levy Program (FPLP) unless there is a Manual Levy added to the wage garnishment. The amount that the IRS will leave you with, after the wage garnishment, is based upon the number of exemptions that you claimed at work on your W-4 and the frequency of your paycheck. The IRS will send a table to your employer with the wage garnishment order that tells your employer how much to leave you.

The most important thing to remember is that this table tells them the maximum amount that your employer can pay you, not the amount the IRS can take through the wage garnishment.

This means that no matter how much money you make, the IRS is going to leave you with the same amount of take-home pay-- the amount that is exempt from levy. 

Anything above that amount goes to the IRS.

If you try to make up for an IRS garnishment by working overtime, all of the extra money that you earn from that overtime is going to be sent to the IRS via the wage garnishment. You will get no extra money in your pocket because the IRS wage garnishment instructs your employer to pay the IRS everything over a certain amount.

There is not a set percentage that the IRS can take. If you don't make a lot of money, an IRS wage garnishment / IRS Levy may only come out to them taking 30% of your pay. If you earn a lot of money at your job, the IRS garnishment may result in the government keeping 80% or 90% of your pay.

How can I get an IRS 
Wage Garnishment (Levy) Stopped

Having an IRS wage garnishment / IRS Levy released will typically require that you work very quickly, because even one missed paycheck can really hurt your family's finances. An IRS wage garnishment can typically be stopped if you can propose some kind of resolution to your debt that the IRS believes may ultimately be accepted.

Of course, you can't propose things like payment plans or propose an Offer in Compromise until you have filed all of your tax returns, so the complete plan to release your wage garnishment has to start there. The IRS will usually release a garnishment if you can file (or have a tax professional promise the IRS that your tax returns will be filed) all of your missing tax returns, complete a financial statement, and put a proposal on the table. That proposal can be a Payment Plan/Installment Agreement, an IRS settlement through the Offer in Compromise program, being declared Currently not Collectible or something else.

What if I work as an Independent Contractor?  

Can the IRS Execute an IRS wage levy to my pay?

Yes, the IRS can levy anyone who pays you. If you are an independent contractor, the IRS wage levy would act in the same way as an Accounts Receivable Levy rather than as a wage garnishment. This means that there would be no money that is exempt from levy - the entire amount of your pay would be sent to the IRS, leaving you no money to take home. 

Like an IRS wage garnishment, an Accounts Receivable levy is continuous because it is considered to attach to the contract between you and the person paying you.

Can the IRS take other enforcement actions against me while I’m under a continuous IRS wage garnishment (Levy)?

Yes, the IRS can garnish your pay with an IRS wage garnishment, and then turn around and take more money by levying your bank account. Technically, the IRS should not be able to do this. An IRS wage garnishment provides that a specific amount of money is exempt from the garnishment/levy, which is why you can still get a small paycheck when the IRS garnishes you.

In most cases, this money that was exempt on your paycheck is probably the same money that is now in your bank account. If you can prove to the IRS that the money they took in a bank levy was money that was exempt from a garnishment, then they will release the bank levy. 

The IRS will usually do this after the fact so the combination of a wage garnishment and bank levy will cause you a lot of problems in the meantime. The IRS may finally agree with you that the money in your bank account is the exempt amount, but, you will have to wait for that money to be returned to you.
