IRS Wage Garnishment

If you have IRS debt, a wage garnishment could be in your future. When the IRS garnishes your wages, they initially take a very large portion without regard for your other expenses. Getting groceries, paying rent, and even putting gas in your car can become quite an issue. However, seeking consultation with a professional tax relief specialist can get you some breathing room.


IRS Debt Collections

The Internal Revenue Service has a few avenues for collecting your IRS debt, and wage garnishment is one of them. Before this step is taken, notices will be sent to you informing you of your tax debt and giving you a short period of time to settle. If you do not reach an agreement with the IRS or settle your debt in that time frame, you will receive a final notice. If you have not contacted the IRS after the final notice is sent, they will initiate the garnishment and levy procedures.


Garnishment Amount

As much as 70 percent of your wages can be garnished to settle an IRS debt. On an income of $3,000 per month, you may have less than $1,000 to handle your other obligations. That doesn't leave much room for paying for living expenses, and can completely cripple most people. The IRS will continue to deduct take these large amounts of your pay until your debt is paid in full, or until someone intervenes.


Dealing with Wage Garnishment

Reducing or eliminating a wage garnishment can be very difficult, and most people are unsuccessful without professional assistance. The IRS is insistent that you pay your taxes, so you need someone who is knowledgeable about the rules to guide you through the process. That is where professional tax relief specialists shine. An experienced professional will have navigated the system many times before, and may be able to get you relief in as few as two days.


Resolving Wage Garnishment

As a tax attorney or CPA, your tax relief professional can communicate with the IRS on your behalf to negotiate more manageable payment terms. In some cases, they may be able to help you settle your entire IRS debt in full via an offer in compromise. In either case, a tax relief professional will enable you to keep more of your pay where it belongs, so you can pay your bills and put food on the table.
