Stop Tax Levy - IRS Wage Garnishment - Social Security Garnishment

Updated: Jul 5, 2019

IRS Garnishment On Social Security -

Stop Tax Levies - Wage Garnishments

Q. How do I stop and release an IRS Wage Levy / IRS Garnishment and how fast can the Tax Levy be stopped and released from my paycheck, wages, Social Security or Social Security Disability (SSDI)?

The short answer is this: contact the best IRS tax levy help team at Flat Fee Tax Service, Inc. immediately.





IRS WAGE LEVY: The IRS Tax Attorneys at Flat Fee Tax Relief will have an IRS Wage Levy / IRS Garnishment stopped and released in 1 day/24 hour. That's a fact.

Below is just about everything that you need to know about an IRS Wage Levy, IRS Garnishment or IRS levy.

The IRS will send a series of letters informing you of their intent. Have you received a CP-90 (Final Notice of Intent to Levy and Notice of Your Right to a Hearing) or CP-91 (Final Notice to Levy on Social Security (#SocialSecurity) or Social Security Disability (SSDI) Benefits)?

Once those IRS Notices have been sent by the IRS, you are "fair game" and the IRS is "locked and loaded". There are primarily two ways that the IRS will seize your assets using the Levy:  

1. The IRS Bank Levy. 

2. The IRS Tax Levy / IRS Garnishment.  Additionally, issuing an IRS Garnishment, IRS Wage Levy or IRS Bank Levy is much easier and cheaper for the IRS to execute. The Automated Collection System (ACS) is the IRS computer system that will match your data and send out Levy orders to seize your paycheck, your wages, your commissions, your Social Security or Social Security (SSDI) benefits.

IRS Levy On Your Bank Account: Whatever the IRS "finds" in your Bank account at the time of seizure, is what the IRS can receive from the IRS Bank Levy. The IRS must execute a new Bank Levy to seize any further funds from your bank or brokerage firm. You have 21 days to have the funds returned to you. The 21 days includes Saturday, Sunday and holidays. You don't have a lot of time. You must maximize your time. If you owe more than $25,000.00 you need to understand that financial disclosures will be required (bank statements, pay stubs, etc.) Should you have unfiled tax returns, the tax returns will need to be filed immediately if you want any chance of stopping an IRS Levy at your bank. 

Read below for more information on the IRS Levy process.

An IRS Levy (#IRSgarnishment) on your bank occurs when the IRS sends a letter accompanied with an IRS Levy Notice to a financial institution (Bank or Brokerage) informing your Bank that the IRS is seizing your money from your bank account.

The next step in the IRS "things to do list/bag of tricks" is to seize your paycheck, your Social Security or your Social Security Disability (SSDI) benefit taken via an IRS Garnishment / IRS Wage Levy, or an IRS agent could show up at your door to seize your possessions.

The IRS is the world's most powerful collection agency. The IRS has enormous powers to collect money. You are not going to "B.S." your way out of an IRS Wage Levy on your own. That's a fact. 

There are very few requirements that must be met before the IRS Executes an IRS Bank Levy / IRS Wage Garnishment / IRS Tax Levy:

• The IRS must have assessed the back tax debt and sent an IRS Levy Notice (CP 90, CP 91, CP 504, Letter 1058, CP 278 or LT 11) and Demand Payment, 

• The taxpayer must have neglected or refused to pay the back tax liability and,

• The IRS must have assessed the back tax debt and sent an IRS Levy Notice (Bank Levy, Wage Garnishment/IRS Levy) and Demand Payment.

The IRS can serve the Final Notice to Levy / Notice of Bank Levy or the IRS Levy in person. The IRS can leave it at the taxpayer’s home or your usual place of business. The IRS can send the Notice of IRS Levy or IRS Wage Garnishment to the last known address by certified or registered mail. 

It is important to note that the IRS is only required to send the Final IRS Levy Notice (CP-90 / CP-91, etc.) to the last address known to it.

The taxpayer does not need to actually receive the Notice of IRS Bank Levy or IRS Levy (wages, paycheck, Social Security) for the Levy to be effective.

Many taxpayers may never actually receive the IRS Levy Final Notice. You may not realize that you are in danger of receiving an IRS Wage Levy / IRS Garnishment (#IRSwagegarnishment) until your wages, paycheck or Social Security Benefits are actually garnished/levied or your Bank account has been seized.

Did we mention that Flat Fee Tax Service, Inc. will have an IRS Wage Levy stopped in 1 day / 24 hours?



IRS Bank Levy Info: The Bank is instructed to freeze all of your funds (21 days which includes Saturday and Sundays) that are in your Bank accounts at the time of the IRS Levy. Your Bank is ordered to forward your funds to the IRS. Banks are obligated to follow the IRS Levy instructions.

Remember, you have 21 days to get your bank account money returned. You need to act immediately. 

It matters not how much you owe the IRS. The ACS (Automated Collection System) just matches your name with your financial / employment information and out goes the IRS Levy. The IRS commonly uses an IRS Levy as a way of collecting back income taxes and an IRS Levy will have a devastating impact on your financial situation.

IRS Garnishment / IRS Wage Levy: The IRS will make a demand of your employer that a portion of your IRS Garnishment / IRS Wage Levy is sent directly to the IRS. Section 6334 does allow for an exempt amount that must remain outside of the IRS Wage Levy / IRS Garnishment. That amount is very, very small, leaving you without enough money to satisfy your regular living expenses.

An IRS Wage Levy / IRS Garnishment upon your paycheck, your Social Security or Social Security Disability (SSDI) is considered to be a continuous and ongoing IRS Garnishment/IRS Levy. The IRS Levy needs to be applied only once and will be applicable to your future wages, paycheck or Social Security until either released by the IRS under Section 6343 or the back tax debt is fully paid. 

As your future wages or Social Security are earned, no additional IRS Garnishment / IRS Wage Levy action is necessary.

SOCIAL SECURITY / SOCIAL SECURITY DISABILITY (SSDI): Section 6334 (c) of the Internal Revenue Code (26 U.S.C. 6334 (c)) allows your Social Security Benefit and Social Security Disability (SSDI) to be subject to an IRS Wage Levy / IRS Garnishment for a collection of your unpaid tax liability.

If you are a Senior Citizen relying on Social Security or Social Security Disability (SSDI) for your income and you have an IRS Garnishment attached to your Social Security, the IRS is taking a portion of your very limited monthly check.

Through the Federal Payment Levy Program (FPLP), Social Security or Social Security Disability (SSDI) benefit payments outlined in Title II of the Social Security Act, Federal Old-Age, Survivors, and Disability Insurance Benefits, are subject to the 15-percent IRS Levy, to pay your delinquent IRS tax debt if you do nothing.

PLEASE NOTE: The IRS can take more than the 15% through what is called a Manual Levy.
