How to File An Income Execution

1.     You must obtain a transcript of the judgment from the Clerk of the Court.

2.     You then must file the transcript with the Clerk of Suffolk County. You may call the Clerk's Office for more information at (631) 852-2000, or visit them online.  Keep a copy for your records, and make another to file with the Sheriff's Office.

The address for the County Clerk is:

Note:  If you have filed for collection with the Sheriff's Office using Form 199, then you have already completed steps 1 & 2.

3.     Purchase an income execution form such as Blumberg Form T439 (REV June 2012) from a legal stationary store or online at www.blumberg.com.  Please fill out the form completely and clearly.  State specific salary and how it is paid (weekly/biweekly).  All addresses, such as the creditor's, debtor's and employer's, must be complete with the street and city.
