What is wage garnishment
Wage garnishment is used by the IRS to collect taxes owed by withholding portions of your paycheck received from your employer. Once a garnishment is filed, the employer is required by law to collect a percentage of each paycheck and remit it to the IRS or to the State. IRS wage levy or garnishments stay in effect until the tax is fully paid or until the IRS or the State agrees to release the garnishment. When wages are garnished, or "attached," money is deducted from the debtor's paycheck and sent to the IRS. This form of debt collection is most often seen in delinquent tax problems and back-owed child support. Unfortunately, many consumers bury their heads in the sand when the notices start coming in. They are usually overwhelmed by aggressive creditors, and by ignoring the situation, the consumer is faced with garnishment and limited alternatives against IRS collection actions. The smart consumer will reach out to a tax resolution specialist for help before he sinks too deeply into a financial hole. Judgments and garnishments can often be avoided if the tax problems are addressed early on.
