The IRS has special enforcement powers that allow it to garnish your wages, execute on your bank account and attach a lien to your property for  any outstanding tax debt.  The IRS does not need to obtain court permission to take any of these special enforcement actions.  Most taxpayers will receive a 30-day Notice of Intent to Levy prior to any of these special enforcement actions. You can stop an IRS garnishment, attachment and levy by filing a bankruptcy case.
