Can the IRS Take at Least 15% of Your Social Security -- The Federal Payment Levy Program

Yes, the IRS can take your Social Security benefit. Yes, the IRS can take your SSDI (Social Security Disability) check. Through what is called the Federal Payment Levy Program (FPLP), the IRS can automatically take 15 per cent (15%) of your Social Security. If you have unfiled or delinquent tax returns, an IRS Revenue Officer can order what is called a Manual Levy and, in fact, take as much as the IRS desires. It isn't just Social Security but a Manual Levy can apply to any type of levy action.

FEDERAL PAYMENT LEVY PROGRAM (FPLP)


The first IRS enforcement tool regarding Social Security is what is called the Federal Payment Levy Program or FPLP. This is a law that allows the IRS to automatically take 15% from any check issued by the Federal government. This includes Social Security recipients as well as contractors doing business with the U.S. government. Like a regular IRS wage levy, the Federal Payment Levy program is continuous. That means that the IRS Levy will go on and on and on (kind of like the "energizer bunny") until the tax debt and penalties are paid in full.



YOUR IRS LEVY

CAN BE 

STOPPED and RELEASED

The IRS tax relief team at Flat Fee Tax Service, Inc. can have your IRS Levy stopped and released in 1 day. Our experienced IRS Tax Attorneys have also had great success having an IRS levy lifted (stopped and released) even though our client may have delinquent tax returns, which would be impossible for an individual taxpayer to accomplish. 

If your IRS tax Attorney can demonstrate and prove to the IRS that the levy on your Social Security is causing a financial hardship, the levy can then be stopped and released. If there is a financial hardship for the taxpayer on Social Security, the very next step (after the levy release) would be to have taxpayer declared to be Currently not Collectible or filing for an IRS settlement through the Offer in Compromise program. 

The IRS has rules and regulations that they must follow if petitioned properly. Now, the IRS is not going to do any of the work necessary for a struggling taxpayer to accomplish any successful petition. That successful IRS petition is the burden of the taxpayer.

Will Have Your 

IRS Wage Levy

Stopped, Released and Lifted

in 

1 Day / 24 Hours

If it can be demonstrated and proven to the IRS that a taxpayer is unable to make payments toward their unpaid back tax debt, a full levy release may be, not only, possible but completely appropriate. A taxpayer must be allowed what are called "allowable living standards." This includes: food and clothing, rent/mortgage, utilities, term life insurance, health insurance, child support, alimony, auto payment(s), auto upkeep and court ordered payments (there are others). These same allowable living standards are a part of the formula for the Offer in Compromise program as well as being declared Currently not Collectible. There are many other factors involved as well.

NEVER, EVER, FILL OUT AN 

IRS FINANCIAL STATEMENT 

WITHOUT IT BEING REVIEWED BY AN 

EXPERIENCED IRS TAX ATTORNEY FIRST

CRITICAL INFORMATION REGARDING THE IRS AND SOCIAL SECURITY:

If you have been sent a CP 91 (Notice of Intent to Levy), it is imperative that you take immediate action to preserve your Social Security benefit. The IRS must be contacted within 30 days. Preferably, the person contacting the IRS is a third (3rd) party. Our IRS tax relief team recommends an experienced IRS Tax Attorney do your negotiation with the IRS. An "experienced" IRS Tax Attorney is a lawyer who has regular contact and has built up "good will" with the enforcement division of the IRS.

The date of the CP 91 letter (or any Notice of Intent to Levy letter) is extremely important. Check the top of the letter for the date as the date of mailing may be different. If the levy release is not handle properly, or expeditiously, the taxpayer may find himself/herself with a levy that goes on for months. One reason that may happen is this: the enforcement division of the IRS has a computer called the Automated Collection System (ACS) and the IRS computer is "talking" to another computer that controls all of the checks written by the Federal Government. That computer is called the Financial Mangement System or FMS. If someone without experience attempts to have a release of levy, the release may get caught up in the "system" and 1 computer may not "talk" to the other one for "quite sometime." Remember this, the IRS is a collection agency and their job is to collect money and if they can squeeze out a couple of payments from you because of "administration process", they will.
