When the IRS decides to issue someone a wage garnishment, they'll typically send them a Notice of Intent to Levy in the mail. This document explains that a portion of the person's income will be withheld to pay the tax liabilities. The unfortunate fact about wage garnishments is that the amount left is may not be enough to pay your rent, make a car payment, buy groceries or pay the rest of the bills. Wage garnishments don't go away on their own; they'll continue to be deducted from your paycheck until the amount you owe the IRS is paid in full.
No matter how hard you plead with your employer, they legally cannot give you your money. Once a wage garnishment is filed with your employer, they're required by law to collect a large percentage of each of your paychecks.
As experienced tax professionals, we know exactly how to negotiate the release of IRS wage garnishments by developing and arranging a payment plan. A tailored, well-designed payment plan will always be a more favorable option than any IRS wage garnishment. It allows you to receive your whole paycheck without fears of any wage garnishments being enforced on you in the future.
