In a BLR webinar presentation entitled ‘Payroll: How to Legally Handle Tax Levies and Garnishments’, Attorneys Clint Robison and Amy Jensen explain that when a person receives a tax levy, usually their employer will get a document from the Department of the Treasury, specifically the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). This document is known as Form 668W Notice of Levy on Wages, Salary, and Other Income. The form can be found online and it provides a lot of information such as:
- identifying the tax payer i.e. the employee
- the kind of tax being referred to
- the period of the tax
- the unpaid balance of the assessment
- the total amount that is due in addition to any interest and penalties
