The IRS Right to Levy On Social Security Benefits
Internal Revenue Code section 6331(h) allows the IRS to take (levy) up to 15% of your Social Security benefits to pay your overdue taxes. In some cases they can take 100% of the social security benefit.
The Levy Process on Social Security Benefits
Before any Tax Levy goes out the IRS always sends a series of tax notices and letters indicating that money is owed. The IRS generally sends a series of 4 notices to each taxpayer. If you receive these notices, first make sure you owe the tax.
If you do, you must respond to the IRS tax notice. Failure to do so will result in a tax levy on any income sources including Social Security Benefits.
You will always receive a Final Notice before a Levy on Social Security Benefits
Before IRS can actually levy your social security benefits the IRS must send you a final notice and a right to a hearing. This is your final chance to settle or resolve the matter before the Notice of Levy is issued on your social security benefits.
If you are going to ask for a Collection Due Process Hearing and appeal the tax notice, make sure you file for the hearing timely and send it by certified mail.
