What is a wage garnishment?

Wage garnishment typically happens when you owe a debt to the IRS. Having your wages garnished means that not only can the IRS take money directly from your paychecks before you receive them, but your employer will be made aware of your debts.

The IRS has sweeping powers to collect on tax obligations. No matter how hard you plead with your employer, they cannot give you the money missing from your paycheck. You will continue to have your wages garnished until you pay the debt in-full or take another action to end the garnishment.

Resolving Your IRS Issues

In most cases, wage garnishment is continuous, meaning that you are left with nearly no money to meet your necessary living expenses until the IRS agrees to release. Our tax specialists understand the complexities of wage garnishments, and we know the toll they can take on delinquent taxpayers and their families.
