Wage Garnishment

Can the IRS really take my wages?

We will get any IRS wage levy released so you have your wages to live on. Usually we get this done for you before your next paycheck once you give us the necessary information. As you probably know, IRS wage garnishments ruin any budget you have. IRS wage levy barely leaves you enough to buy gas for the car, much less anything left over to live on. That’s why you should never delay before you hire us. Hire us today to have the wage garnishment released. Compare our prices to what the IRS is withholding from your wages and then decide: who is offering you the best path to recovery: the IRS or us?

The role of the IRS:

The role of the IRS is to assess and collect taxes for the U.S. government. If a taxpayer fails to pay up, the IRS resorts to calls, visits, letters, and garnishments. What is very harmful to the wage earner is that the IRS does not have to provide any notice before beginning collection activity for IRS back taxes. The IRS has vast collection powers, unlike any person to whom you might owe a debt. Why? Because they can garnish and take property without a court proceeding. No other collection agency gets to do this (not counting repossessions, where you’ve agreed in the contract that repossession is part of the deal).

How Wage Garnishment works

How does this work? The IRS starts the ball rolling by sending written notice to your employer. The notice will require your employer to withhold a huge percentage of your pay and to send it to the IRS. Employers are required to follow the instructions of the IRS. If your employer ignores an IRS wage garnishment then your employer can be held liable for serious penalties. If you are self-employed, the IRS can send an IRS wage levy to your accounts receivable. So you’ll be in the position of having your customers paying the IRS instead of paying you. Not a good business profile to show your customers because they will often think it means you’re on the brink of going out of business or bankruptcy and they want nothing to do with that. We see dozens and hundreds of wage garnishments in our law firm. It is one of the IRS’s favorite collection tools.

IRS wage garnishments can ruin you financially. Most taxpayers are in serious trouble after they miss one paycheck. Many are on the street if they miss two. With an IRS wage garnishment you’ll find the IRS taking somewhere in the neighborhood of 80-90% of your paycheck. That’s enough to put anyone in the street. Worse yet, an IRS wage levy can continue until the back taxes are paid or until handled through some other means such as an Offer in Compromise or an Installment Agreement. Some taxpayers also qualify for a “hands-off” status known as a Currently Not Collectible status.
