IRS Wage Garnishment Attorney

As an individual or the owner of a business, you have an obligatory duty to report, file, and pay your state and federal taxes each and every year. A failure to pay taxes to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) may carry penalties if discovered. An IRS Wage Garnishment (IRS Levy - Tax Levy) is continuous which means that the levy order stays in effect until the IRS garnishment is stopped and released. The IRS will make a concerted effort to recover the tax debt owed to them IRS enforcement tools include the wage garnishment. If the IRS is currently garnishing your wages, or if garnishment is threatened (Notice of Intent to Levy), it is imperative that you become pro-active immediately to protect your financial future. The IRS attorneys at Flat Fee Tax Relief can represent you in regards to all tax issues. Our tax professionals have a reputation of having an IRS wage garnishment stopped and released in one day.

What Is Wage Garnishment?

An IRS Garnishment (Tax Levy - IRS Levy) is the withholding of an individual’s income in order to pay a debt. The IRS has the power to intercept your income and claim it for its own if you did not pay your IRS back taxes. Unlike other creditors, the IRS does not have to get a judgment first, and they may be able to garnish more than an average creditor would.

Notice of Garnishment

Before the IRS begins garnishing and seizing your wages, it is required to mail you a notice of levy first. This final notice must be written, and will be sent to a mailing address you gave the IRS.The mailing address could be very old so you may not know that the IRS is ready to crush you. The levy notice will include details of the amount that you owe to the IRS, and provide you with the date by which you must pay the money.

Other Ways that the IRS May Try to Collect Its Money

Wage garnishment is just one of the ways that the IRS may attempt to collect the money it is owed. The IRS may also impose:

  • Garnishment of future refunds;

  • IRS bank levy

  • IRS garnishment on Social Security benefits

  • Liens on your property; and

  • Seizure of your home.

A Tax Levy on your wages is one of the easiest, most effective and straightforward ways for the IRS to recover the money it is owed. If you are wondering how much money the IRS can take, the answer is that it depends on your income and the amount you owe the IRS. How you file (single or married) will also have an effect. It is best to consult with an experienced tax lawyer to learn the federal laws, as well as the laws specific to your state.
