What is a Wage Garnishment?
A wage garnishment is when the IRS instructs your employer to withhold majority of your paycheck and sends the withdrawn funds to the IRS. The garnished money is then used to pay down your tax debt. This is devastating because it deprives you of the money you need to support yourself and your family and brings your employer into your back tax problem, resulting in embarrassment and potentially even the loss of your job.
Don't Ignore the IRS
Although our professional tax attorneys are equipped to negotiate tax resolution agreements with the IRS on your behalf, you should know that the IRS has broad powers and they can pursue enforced collection activities if you ignore them. Unfortunately, they are able to garnish your wages with or without a judicial determination.
The IRS must give you notice before they garnish your wages
Before they garnish your wages, the IRS is required, by law, to issue a specific collection letter which demands you to pay your tax bill. You must have failed to respond before the IRS sends you a final notice of intent to garnish your wages. At this point, you will have only 30 days to stop it. If you fail to take action during this time, the IRS will then notify your employer to garnish your wages.
