Wage Garnishment Solution Lawyers for Federal & State Tax Debt
When you owe the IRS a tax debt, they can seek an order to take money directly from your paycheck in order to pay back your unpaid tax obligations. This is called a wage garnishment. The IRS notifies your employer via a notice directing the employer to deduct a certain percentage from your pay each pay cycle until the amount of the garnishment (i.e. unpaid tax) has been paid in full.
If you are a wage earner or salaried employee, a wage garnishment is a powerful tool frequently used by the IRS and state taxing authorities to recover unpaid tax.
Wage garnishments can leave you with a small fraction of your paycheck in hand each week. Garnishments by the IRS can take between 30-70% of your paycheck. This type of involuntary collection can destroy your career, family, and your business.
Tax Liens With Wage Garnishments
An IRS tax lien is a claim used as security for the tax debt. A lien against your personal or business assets is often used along with a wage garnishment. The IRS or state taxing agency is trying to get you back paying your debt so we may be able to negotiate withdrawal of the wage garnishment or lien. Tax liens can compound your problems because they show up on your credit report and can encumber your personal property and real estate so that you cannot sell these assets to help alleviate your tax problems.
The IRS will typically use wage garnishment as a method to collect taxes owed when a taxpayer has not responded to its efforts to collect money. It is important to also realize that when a garnishment is in place, you are still continuing to pay interest and penalty on the unpaid tax. Over time, the penalties and tax easily can exceed the amount of the original tax.
