Can you live off of 50% of your paycheck? When the IRS or state has tried to collect back taxes unsuccessfully, they will begin to seize assets. So by not opening letters or returning phone calls they will take the next step. This process is called a "levy." When they attach wages, it's known as a "wage garnishment." These taxing authorities are legally allowed to seize bank accounts, demand payment from accounts receivable, take control of property for auction, and assume title on vehicles. Virtually anything of value can be seized to satisfy the outstanding debt.
