The IRS does not need a court order to garnish wages for unpaid taxes, and the amount they can take is more than for most other types of debt. The IRS determines how much they can garnish based on your filing status, how frequently you are paid, and the number of dependents you have. They use a table that lists the amount exempt from levy for each pay period, based on these factors. The IRS updates this table periodically, so it’s important to check the most recent version. Here is an example of how it works:

IRS Wage Garnishment

Everything above this amount can be taken by the IRS. So, for example, if you are single, paid monthly, and have two exemptions, the IRS could take all of your wages above the exempt amount for two exemptions listed in the table. Keep in mind that state and local tax authorities may also be able to garnish your wages for unpaid taxes, and their rules and limits may be different. Because tax situations can be complicated, and the IRS has significant powers to collect unpaid taxes, it is always advisable to work out a payment plan or other arrangement with the IRS if you owe taxes and cannot pay the full amount immediately.

Understanding Wage Garnishment

IRS Wages Garnishment Will Happen After They Sent You Three Notices For Full Payment. The Next Notice After These Will Be The Final Notice Of Intent To Levy. The IRS Will Garnish You Pay As To Take Collection Action And Enforce A Levy If They Feel That You Have Been Ignoring Your Tax Liabilities.
