Tax levy Wage Garnishment

I recived a Levy back in August for failing to pay on a payment plan I quickly fixed the problem and paid what I owed and did not hear from the IRS again. I missed 3 payments so far because of finaces and when I filed my state taxes this year they took them because of a levy I have not received in fo from the IRS not letters nothing certified mail. The next step would be wage garnishment or Bank Levy right/ In Dec 2008 I did receive a banl levy but I fixed the problem quickly before it went thru. Some told me if the sent a letter before they will not send another and just proceed witht he Levy. Will the IRS inform now with a letter if they intend to garnish my wages or will they just do it and I won't know until I get my paycheck?


Thanks
Tameka

“ Will the IRS inform now with a letter if they intend to garnish my wages or will they just do it and I won't know until I get my paycheck?”========>Yes. They ‘d send numerous letters to ou.. IRS sends at least five, count'em five notices, two by certified mail, to a delinquent taxpayer at their last known address. If you didn't tell the post office your moved or your husband ignored the notices and didn't tell you, it is not the fault of IRS. You’d receive a letter from your employer today saying that IRS has compelled them to garnish your paychecks. IRSwage garnishemnt is the deduction of money from an employee's monetary compensation resulting from unpaid IRS taxes.Most likely this should not be a surprise as the IRS will only levy one's wages after repeated letters and warnings about the taxes owed. IRS Wage Garnishment is one of the IRS's most aggressive tax collection mechanisms and should not be taken lightly;they will levy when they feel they have run out of other options. However,a garnishment can be stopped once the IRS has started the levy. The IRS would actually prefer you to make some other form of arrangement than to enforce a garnishment
