This is a difficult question to answer without know the full underlying issues. A short simple answer to your question is - yes, the IRS can take your retirement. They can take the full value of your retirement or partial value of your retirement, once again depending on the reasons behind the IRS seizing your assets. I would assume the most common reason one would ask this question is due to owing backed taxes. If this is the case your retirement can be lost up to the amount you owe the IRS. In a situation like this it would be best to try and work something out with the IRS such as a payment plan or a settlement
