An individual’s wages, salary, and other income can be levied.
IRS Wages, salary, and other income include payment for personal services in a work relationship.
Sometimes an employer threatens to fire an employee to avoid handling a levy.
This might be a violation of 15 USC 1674.
If the employer fires the taxpayer because of this, the employer might be fined not more than $1000 or imprisoned for not more than one year, or both.
You should refer the taxpayer to the Wage and Hour Division of the Department of Labor (DOL). DOL, not IRS, must decide if the employer violated the law.
Unlike other IRS tax levies, a levy on a taxpayer’s wages and salary has a continuous effect. It attaches to future payments, until the levy is released.
Wages and salary include fees, bonuses, commissions, and similar items. All other levies only attach to property and rights to property that exist when the levy is served.
If a bank account is levied, it only reaches money in the account when the levy is served. It does not reach money deposited later.
When other income is levied, the levy reaches payment the taxpayer has a fixed and determinable right to. If the taxpayer’s right to that payment is not dependent upon the performance of future services, then the levy will reach the future payments as well.
A Form 668-A is issued to levy an author’s royalties. The author has a fixed and determinable right to royalties for books that have already been published. The levy reaches royalties for sales of those books in the future.
The levy does not reach royalties for books that are written and published later. A new levy must be served to take those royalties.
A Form 668-W is issued to levy a taxpayer’s retirement income. The taxpayer has a fixed right to the future payments; therefore, the levy remains in effect until it is released.
Exempt Amounts from the IRS Wage Garnishment
Part of the individual taxpayer’s wages, salary, (including fees, bonuses, commissions and similar items) and other income, as well as retirement and benefit income, is exempt from levy.
The weekly exempt amount is:
The total of the taxpayer’s standard deduction and the amount deductible for exemptions on an income tax return for the year the levy is served.
Income that is not paid weekly is prorated, so the same amount is exempt.
In addition, the amount the taxpayer needs to pay court ordered child support is exempt.
Please take Note:
The support order can originate from a court or administrative process under the laws and procedures of a state, territory or possession.
If support is allowed, the same child can not be claimed as an exemption for figuring the exempt amount. See IRM 188.8.131.52 (2)a above.
IRS will not remove any Wage Levy until all tax returns are filed.
If you do not have your records we can secure all your information from the IRS to prepare all back years. Fresh Start Tax can make this happen within days.
Even though IRS has sent a wage garnishment or Wage Levy to your employer, there are certain allowances that the IRS will give to you.
A chart will be sent to your employer that they use to determine how much you are allowed to keep from your paycheck. The amount allowed is for your basic food monies only. A single taxpayer with one exemption was allowed $179.81 per week in 2009, IRS will take the rest.
The IRS has sent a Wage Levy or wage garnishment out because the taxpayer did not respond to correspondence from the IRS. The IRS always makes several attempts to contact a taxpayer that owes tax, they have to by law.
Some taxpayers may not receive this information because they have moved or did not actually receive the mailing sent out by IRS. It makes no difference. Once an IRS Notice of Levy is sent they will not be removed until contact has been made with the Internal Revenue Service. Fresh Start Tax can handle the IRS for you.
Case History: Ron W. did not receive a Final Notice sent by the Internal Revenue Service. He had moved and never got his forwarding mail. IRS found out where he had worked and had sent a 668W wage garnishment to his employer.
When he went to get his pay check they handed him the Notice of Levy. He thought he would be fired by his supervisor because of the levy. We also talked with his supervisor indicating that we would get this tax levy removed. He found us on the internet after spoking with several companies. He felt like he was being pitched a sale by other companies. He was. This was a simple matter of knowing and calling the right people at IRS which we did because of our 60 years of being Managers and Instructors at the IRS. Ron SKYPED us so he could see us face to face.
The Great Result: We got an immediate release of the wage levy because IRS did not send him the final notice as required by law. IRS faxed the levy release directly to his employer the same day we called IRS.
