When the IRS or state has failed repeatedly to collect back taxes from individuals, they begin to seize assets. One of the assets that can be attached, and by far considered one of the most crippling, is a wage garnishment. After providing either ten, thirty or sixty day notice through certified mail, the IRS will send a notice to your employer forcing them to withhold up to 75% of your earnings to help satisfy the tax debt.
Wage garnishments are by far the most humiliating of all collection tactics, as they reveal your private financial burden to your employer and, in some instances, to your fellow co-workers. This means added work for your employer to fulfill it’s obligation to the appropriate tax authority, possible increased tension between taxpayer and employer, and can greatly impact job performance as it can create undo stress for the taxpayer.
Remember, a garnishment is designed for one purpose: to get the taxpayer’s attention quickly, and to force them to agree to the IRS’s terms. Often times this means agreeing to a costly payment plan, or waiving their valuable legal rights to get the garnishment lifted. Don’t live another day with a wage garnishment when you don’t have to! Our staff of tax professionals can quickly intercede to come between you and the IRS, to stop wage garnishments and get you back on your feet.
