IRS Tax Relief - Tax Debt Help

Each year, thousands upon thousands of taxpayers face an IRS wage garnishment because of a Tax liability. If you owe an IRS tax debt and receive a Notice of Intent to Levy, please do not ignore it. You will be very sorry if you "fluff it off." When the IRS orders a wage garnishment the Agency will make it difficult to maintain a standard of living because you will be left with little to no money. You won't get approved for loans, such as a mortgage. If your employer receives a wage levy order from the IRS, they must comply. This means your paychecks, including commissions and bonuses, may be lost and seized if you do not have experienced representation.

What Is an IRS Wage Garnishment?

Wage garnishment is a draconian enforcement tool used by the IRS to satisfy a past due tax liability. When the IRS drops the hammer with an IRS wage levy, they mean business. Unlike other creditors, the IRS does not need a court order to garnish your paycheck and it is not subject to the limitations under the Consumer Credit Protection Act (CCPA) Title III. The only thing the IRS must do is mail out a Notice to Levy. That's it! Simply mail out the Notice to Levy and they are "good to go." It is not uncommon for the IRS to take as much as 70% of your paycheck. The IRS could take 1005 of your paycheck if a "Manual Levy" is ordered.

How to Stop Wage Garnishment

Once the IRS initiates the wage garnishment process, you have very little time to prevent it from happening. The easiest way to stop a wage garnishment is to pay your tax balance in full. If this is not an option, you’ll need to take steps to address your back taxes ASAP.
