Wage Garnishment Prevention

Professional IRS wage garnishment and back taxes help.

In order to satisfy an IRS tax debt, the IRS has a wage garnishment right to take a portion of your wages or any other income until your outstanding tax balance is paid in full. This wage garnishment may leave you with very little to pay your bills and can amount to almost half of your gross monthly income. Before the IRS may garnish your wages, it must first send you a “Notice and Demand for Payment.” If this demand is not met, the IRS must send you a “Final Notice of Intent to Levy and Notice of Your Right to a Hearing” (levy notice) which allows you to make payment in full within 30 days from the date of the Final Notice to pay or to find another tax solution. If payment is not made within this time and no resolution offered, the IRS will give no further notice and will file a wage garnishment with your employer where seizure of your wages and other assets will commence.
The IRS is pretty tough when they decide to garnish your wages. Generally, your income is garnished and also government benefits such as your social security. The garnishment will not go away unless: the tax debt is paid in full, a financial hardship is found, a payment plan or offer in compromise is being considered by the IRS or you declare bankruptcy.
To avoid garnishment of your wages by the IRS, our team of tax resolution specialists will assess your financial situation and devise a plan to find the best tax resolution for you by either settling your IRS tax debt through the IRS Offer in Compromise Program or by negotiating an affordable payment plan. It is crucial that your wage garnishment is properly removed by an experienced tax attorney to avoid a tax levy on your wages.
