Wage deduction plans provide employees with a convenient way to automatically contribute to current expenses or investments. For example, it is customary for workers to deduct a specified percentage of income and contribute to their traditional individual pension account (IRA) or Roth IRAs. A worker may also decide that the premiums of an insurance policy are deducted from his salary to ensure that the payment will never be missed. When a tax payer is unable to pay his taxes when due, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) enters into a temperate agreement and accepts monthly payments until the tax is paid in full or until the limitation period expires. There are three primary fixed-rate payment methods: mail in a cheque, electronic money withdrawal (levy) and wage deduction. Tax-exempt workers are those who are exempt from overtime (non-exempt workers may be paid overtime). As a general rule, employers are not allowed to deduct wages from workers exempt from wages. Some deductions for non-exempt workers are limited or limited: a wage deduction plan refers to an employer withholding money from a worker`s salary for many purposes, but most often for benefits. Wage deduction plans may be voluntary or involuntary.

The cover of each copy is the same. However, there is a second page of instructions for each copy, which contains different information. The second page of the IRS copy contains a list of internal codes and numbers. The second page of the taxpayer`s copy contains some instructions that are sufficiently superfluous to complete the form and what to do after filling out. The second page of the employer copy is the most interesting. The employer is encouraged to „continue to make payments, unless the IRS notifies [the employer] that the liability has been met.“ Of course, this could affect the taxpayer.
First, the likelihood of the IRS informing the employer in a timely manner is not very high. The form itself confirms this by stating: „If the amount due is fully paid, as shown on the form, and the IRS has not informed you that the liability has been completed, please call the corresponding telephone number below to request the balance due.“ Second, if the taxpayer`s financial situation changes and he is unable to pursue the agreement in a temperamental way, it may be difficult to terminate the IRS wage deduction agreement. Under the new IRS guidelines, a tax guarantee fee can be released by entering into an automatic debit contract, provided the overall balance is less than or equal to $25,000.
