Levies​ on wages or intangible assets

The SCDOR can issue and collect a levy on an individual's wages or intangible assets when an individual is under an assessment, a ​tax lien, or both.

​​

Payroll Departments​

If you are an employer or payroll provider who needs to make a levy payment for an employee (including notifying us if an employee is no longer working, is under a leave of absence, or is taking unpaid leave), you have two options to manage your levy payments and responses. 

  • If you are answering a levy or making a payment for one or two individuals, you don't have to log into MyDORWAY. Instea​d, go to the MyDORWAY menu​ and click Make a Levy Payment or Answer a Levy (or use the buttons below to get started).

    OR

  • If you need to manage multiple levies, it's recommended you log into your MyDORWAY account​, then select More and choose either of the Levy options under Payments & Returns

If you have questions, contact the SCDOR using the information listed on the Notice of Levy on Wages, Salary that you received.

Make a payment​ or respond to a ​levy on MyDORWAY logo for the SCDOR's free and secure tax portal.

For employees​

Email ComplyToday@dor.sc.gov​ ​if you are an individual wishing to make a payment toward a debt and your wages are currently being garnished. Payments must be made by credit card, and a copy of your transaction receipt and your payroll department’s email address or fax number must be included in your email.

Wages: The SCDOR may issue a levy against 25% of the gross wages of an individual due to an unpaid assessment or tax liens due to the SCDOR. This can be due to a state tax debt or a debt owed to an outside agency (such as past due hospital or state ethics commission penalty) that is being collected by the SCDOR.

Intangible assets: ​The SCDOR may issue a levy against the bank accounts and certain investment accounts of an individual or entity with an unpaid assessment or tax liens due to the SCDOR. This can include a levy against currently held contract payments and future payments. If the SCDOR issues a levy on intangibles against you, all amounts up to the total amount due to the SCDOR will be remitted to the SCDOR.​ If you have questions, contact the SCDOR using the information listed on the Notice of Levy on Intangibles that you received.
