Levies and Wage Garnishments
What You Should Know
As one of several means of collection, the IRS often issues a variety of levies against taxpayers. The levy can be mailed to your bank, your accounts receivable, and even issued to your retirement account. When a levy is sent to your employer it is called a wage garnishment. A levy or wage garnishment is often used by the IRS as a method of enforced collection aimed at garnering the cooperation of a taxpayer and is usually issued prior to more intrusive actions such as seizure and sale of taxpayers’ assets.
