If you owe back taxes to the IRS, they will eventually attempt to garnish or levy your wages. This will happen after the IRS has sent you three notices for full payment, followed by a Final Notice of Intent to Levy. Payment in full includes the penalties and interest that accrued on your tax liability since you filed the return or they filed on your behalf. If the IRS feels that you are ignoring your tax liabilities they will take collection action and enforce a wage levy. To determine the amount of your wage levy or garnishment, the IRS uses your exemption amount based on your filing status.
While your wages are being garnished your tax debt is still accruing Interest and Penalties that the IRS will expect you to pay unless you are able to negotiate other terms of agreement to settle your debt.
