IRS Tax Levies

If the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) imposes a tax levy against a state payee, the paying agency must set up a mail code under the payee’s TIN payable to the IRS.

IRS tax levies take precedence over state debts.

Note: Payments to the IRS must be released from hold. For more information, see Hold Bypass Indicator.
