Can the IRS garnish wadges?
Answer Unfortunately, yes. There are not funds that are exempt from IRS seizure or garnishment for tax arrearages. The IRS does not n…eed a court order to levy a bank account or garnish wages.
Your employer should be able to give you a copy of the garnishment order, or you can call or get online with the IRS to find out. You would have gotten a notice of inten…t in the mail, unless you have tried to play games by moving and not letting the IRS know about the change in address.

ONLY for: 1-Unpaid delinquent student loans 2-Prior unpaid taxes 3-Delinquent child support
YES, the IRS CAN garnish your Social Security Retirement benefit! This is a relatively new program, though it was apparently authorized under legislation from several years ag…o. If your monthly benefit is more than $750, they may garnish 15% of your monthly benefit for taxes that are at least six months in arrears. (This doesn't apply to certain Social Security Disability benefits and perhaps other types of Soc. Sec. benefits, but it does apply to S.S. Retirement. I know, because I just got a letter from the IRS notifying me that they'll be taking $207 from my monthly payment.) The IRS is required to notify you before it begins to garnish your Soc. Sec., but in my case the notice arrived just two days in advance. You can appeal the garnishment for reasons of "hardship," but you should do it immediately upon receiving the notice, or they'll garnish your next payment. Actually, it is the Treasury Dept. that has the authority to withhold any money owed to the federal government out of any U.S. Treasury payments to its citizens or suppliers. Treasury writes ALL checks for the government, so they were given the authority....don't forget the oldest rule: You cannot escape death and taxes, so please pay your taxes, and hope for a long life. While notice of an SS payment holdback needs to be given, (unlike most of the other offsets the government may make on payments it sends), an argument that you weren't given enough time would likely fall on deaf ears...you were more than likely well advised and given protest/dispute opportunities about the DEBT that is being paid - and failed to adequately respond or say why you didn't owe it and the Government was wrong in demanding payment...perhaps thinking there wasn't much they could do? Garnishment of SS is well on in the collection process.
The IRS can not garnish your unemployment. They usually garnish bank accounts and wages. You can get into a resolution with the IRS and not have to worry about a garnishment a…t all. In fact, if your are getting unemployment, let them know and they can list your debt to them as unrecoverable at this time. Once you are working again, you need to call the IRS and they will set up a payment plan for you to get caught up.
Answer Legally, no, (USC 101-501. Is it done, yes. Even though military retirement benefits are legally exempt from IRS garnishment, …it is sometimes allowed because the IRS is a very powerful (some believe out of control) agency. The IRS continually violates the rights of active and retired military personnel to be exempt from garnishment and penalties. The agency also violates the rights of U.S. citizens with complete immunity. The best option if the IRS attempts to garnish exempted property, income or assets is to file a counter-suit in U.S. District Court.
Usually. Even though there are some laws protecting all pensions the IRS has been successful in seizing such funds payment of tax arrearages. This includes Social Security ben…efits as well as military and/or government employee pensions and privatized benefits. In other words, the IRS can do ALMOST anything they choose to collect taxes owed.
The government has just garnished my 2008 federal tax return due to my student loan being defaulted. My student loan dates back to 2005. It was very inconvenient to have… my return garnished, especially since I would have received $6,500, but I am also glad I had this resolved!
yes IRS will garnish 401k because they see it as a income.
Yes, pension and Social Security payments may be garnished by the IRS to satisfy Federal tax levies and judgments. Please see the links below for additional information.

When you owe the IRS back taxes, the IRS has to follow collection due process to collect your taxes. They start by sending you balance due notices and work up to levy notices.… If you do not respond to them, the IRS will issue a wage levy, 668w, to your employer to collect your back taxes. You can stop a levy by getting into a resolution on your back taxes. Visit my blog at wallysworldoftaxes.blogspot.com for information about the collections due process and resolutions.Wally
