Social Security Questions? Ask a Social Security Expert
Hi. I'm PDtax, and can assist. I assume you have a Federal tax lien.
If you are current on your installment agreement, IRS typically does not look to other income or assets for enforced collection. Let's assume you aren't current.
IRS is limited by statute to 15% of your social security benefit. No more. They typically get it from the source before payment is made to you.
Since the remainder is exempt from Federal enforced collection, in the event they levy on your bank account where the social security is deposited, you will be able to get those funds released as exempt.
Thanks for asking at Just Answer. Positive feedback is welcomed if this covers your questions. If you need anything more, please ask. I'm PDtax.
