Employer Threatens to Fire Taxpayer Because of a Levy
Sometimes an employer threatens to fire an employee to avoid handling a levy. This might be a violation of 15 USC 1674.
If the employer fires the taxpayer because of this, the employer might be fined not more than $1000 or imprisoned for not more than one year, or both.
Refer the taxpayer to the Wage and Hour Division of the Department of Labor (DOL). DOL, not IRS, must decide if the employer violated the law.
