IRS Levy on Account w/Direct Deposit from SS

Answered by: 

We received an IRS Levy on an account and the account receives a direct deposit from Social Security. Can we debit the account for and send the funds to the IRS?

The federal regulations that protect federal benefit payments do not include IRS levies in the definition of a "garnishment order;" i.e. those regulations do not apply to IRS levies.
