Your "save my Social Security check" Hotline: 1 - 8 8 8 - 8 7 5 - 4 5 0 6
After many years of interviews with our clients, there is a common theme. Men and women who have unfiled tax returns and are now receiving Social security as well as Social Security Disability (SSDI) are extremely vulnerable to an IRS Levy.
You don't need to have unfiled tax returns to feel the wrath of the IRS. If you have back tax owed to the IRS, the IRS computer, which is called the Automated Collection System (ACS), can easily match you up with your Social Security Administration records.
If you wait to deal with an IRS Levy, Flat Fee Tax Service can have the Levy released in 1 to 2 business days but your check may still be affected. Social Security checks run on 30 day cycles and depending when the release is received will be the difference in perhaps losing your money from 2 checks instead of 1. You heard the expression "time is money", well, when your are dealing with the IRS and the Social Security Administration it is absolutely true.
An IRS Levy / IRS Wage Garnishment upon your paycheck, your Social Security or Social Security Disability (SSDI) is considered to be a continuous IRS Wage Garnishment / IRS Levy, i.e. it needs to be applied only once and will be applicable to your future wages until either Released by the IRS under §6343 or the debt is fully paid. As your future wages are earned, no additional IRS Wage Garnishment / IRS Levy action is necessary by the IRS to take a large portion from your paycheck unless steps are taken to Release the IRS Levy / IRS Wage Garnishment.
Section 6334 (c) of the Internal Revenue Code (26 U.S.C. 6334 (c)) allows Social Security Benefit and Social Security Disability (SSDI) subject to an IRS Levy / IRS Wage Garnishment for collection of your unpaid Federal Tax Debt.
If you are a Senior Citizen relying on Social Security or Social Security Disability (SSDI) for your income and you have an IRS Levy attached to your Social Security, the IRS is taking a portion of your very limited monthly check, leaving you without the funds for your basic living needs.
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.
We previously mentioned your vulnerability if you have unfiled tax returns. The IRS can take more than the 15% Levy under FPLP.
The IRS is not limited by IRC 6331(h) to taking 15% of your paycheck, your Social Security or your Social Security Disability (SSDI) benefits. The IRS can issue a manual levy that can continuously take ALL of your Social Security / Social Security Disability (SSDI) benefits as well as a paycheck / wage under Internal Revenue Code section 6331(a), which permits an IRS Levy on all your wage, salary or other income [which would include Social Security / Social Security Disability (SSDI)]. The 15% automatic IRS Levy provision is a supplement to the manual IRS Levy power. The IRS can chose the manual approach if it deems fit and attempt to collect more than the automated 15%.
Yes, an IRS Revenue Officer can take your entire Social Security or Social Security Disability (SSDI) check. It would rare if the IRS did that but it is not rare for the IRS to take more than the 15%.
You do not have to live with a IRS Levy. You may be eligible for an Offer in Compromise which is a settlement of your back tax debt. You could be declared Currently Uncollectable which would mean that you would not have to pay anything toward your back tax debt.
Flat Fee tax Service will not only stop the IRS Levy but we can take further steps in reducing your back tax debt.
