No. In fact the laws states that the IRS can neither garnish your wages nor put a lien on you.

So, how the heck are they going to enforce this stupid law?

It will change. Very quickly if the IRS finds it is not getting paid the “tax”.
My understanding (such as it is) is that since the passing of the law, the IRS has been writing regulations continuously to essentially re-write the law and give itself more power.
Think of it as, the IRS realizes they are not empowered by the law to do X, so a bureaucrat at the IRS writes a new regulation giving the IRS that power. Hell, far as I can tell, major portions of the bill have essentially been re-written by the IRS. Unconstitutional of course, but what are the ball-less Republicans going to do?

The Constitution states that the Executive Branch is supposed to enforce laws dutifully enacted by Congress - exactly how did that work for immigration? DOMA? International weapons sales? Oh, and the law states that it is a "fine" too, so how did that work out at SCOTUS?
Understand that no matter HOW this law is written, the law will be used like a gigantic, heavy-handed BULL WHIP across the backs of every American - words, meanings or intentions be DAMNED!

I think you are correct. The only enforcement measure for collecting the penalty is to withold it from your tax refund so if you don’t get a refund there is no way they can collect.
