Once a tax levy notice has been sent to your employer, the tax levy will continue until the balance is paid in full. CDOR generally sets the tax levy to be 25% of your disposable pay. This means your employer will take 25% of your wages from every paycheck until your debt is paid in full.
You cannot request a payment plan at this time and sending a partial payment will not prevent future wages from being levied. The tax levy will continue until it is paid in full through your wage assignment, or if you remit certified funds. Only a bank/cashier's check or money order can be accepted as certified funds. The Department recommends that you do not mail your certified funds payment and do not pay via Revenue Online.
