Notice of Wage Garnishment

wage garnish

As a last resort, when the IRS proceeds with an enforced collection of a tax debt, it almost always starts with wage garnishment or a bank levy. The good news is the IRS will not usually resort to one or both of these until after it has made several attempts to contact the taxpayer and resolve the matter agreeably, through other collection alternatives such as voluntary payment, an installment payment plan or an IRS settlement (“Offer in Compromise”). But if you’ve received a notice of wage garnishment, you need to deal with this immediately, before severe financial hardship follows. We’re here to help you achieve the best possible settlement with the IRS.

IRS’ Seizure of Your Paycheck is a Serious Matter Needing Immediate Attention!

The Determination of Whether Bankruptcy will Alleviate Your Tax Debt Depends 
Upon Several Factors, Such As the Nature of the Tax Liability and the Type of Bankruptcy Proceeding You Are In. Talk to Us...We're the Experts in Bankruptcy Tax Relief!

TAX PROBLEM: Ignoring Your Tax Debt Can Push the IRS into Enforced Collection or Seizure of Property through a Wage Levy. 
If your employer tells you they’ve received a Notice of Wage Garnishment, things can quickly go from bad to worse. A wage levy takes effect immediately upon receipt and the taxpayer’s employer must pay over to the IRS the proper IRS levy amount on each payday that the levy remains in effect. If IRS takes your paycheck, you won’t be able to pay your bills, your mortgage or your car payment. If you lose your car, you can’t get to work. And your home isn’t protected either (“homestead” does not apply to the IRS)! The IRS is skilled at using intimidation to force taxpayers needing help into adverse collection action. This is a very serious, time-sensitive matter. You need TaxProblemSolver.com to prevent the IRS from seizing your income and assets.

CONSEQUENCE: If Delinquent Taxes go Ignored, Severe Financial Hardship will Follow. 
In the case of a wage garnishment, or wage levy, notice is given to your employer (which can be very embarrassing and may jeopardize your job!). While there are some limits on how much of your paycheck IRS can take, you will still be left with very little money. Employers will often fail to provide the necessary forms to fill out which would limit the amount the IRS can keep, inadvertently leading to wage garnishments of 70 percent – or more – of your check. When the IRS decides how much of your paycheck to take, they don’t take into account how much money you actually need to spend on necessities. The law places limits on the amount that a regular creditor can garnish from your wages. However, these normal limits do not apply to the IRS. Instead, the tax code requires the IRS to leave you with a certain amount of income after garnishing your wages to pay your tax debt. The tax code contains a table that corresponds to the number of exemptions that you claim for tax purposes, and displays the amount that is (supposedly) necessary for you and your family to pay for basic living necessities. Unfortunately, a garnishment by the IRS can amount to 70% or more of your income. Ouch! 

SOLUTION: We Can Represent You to Prevent, or Stop, a Painful Wage Garnishment. 
If you are faced with wage garnishment, it is imperative that you hire a tax resolution specialist who is aggressive, knowledgeable and ethical, to prevent the IRS from seizing your income and assets.

There are solutions to your tax problems that allow you to avoid an IRS wage garnishment. Repayment plans (installment agreements) and settlements (Offers in Compromise) are but two of the many possible solutions that may be available to you, and they both can stop or prevent wage garnishments. Call us to discuss your Game Plan and to stop the IRS from continuing to rob your paycheck.
