In a BLR webinar entitled ‘Payroll: How To Legally Handle Tax Levies and Garnishments’, attorneys Clint Robison and Amy Jensen provide the following information regarding what employers need to know about wage garnishment and levy funding:
- If the employee is no longer employed, the employer must note this on Part 3 of the wage levy form and provide it to the Internal Revenue Service
- The above point also applies for garnishments. Employee termination or resignations should be reported
- With respect to tax levies, employers must deduct and remit nonexempt amounts which are contained in severance or dismissal pay provided to the employee
