When the IRS decides to garnish your wages, your employer will be notified of the action against you. Your employer is legally obligated to comply with the IRS’ demand. Could you continue to live in comfort if your paycheck is being zapped by the IRS? Most people couldn’t. Understand, the IRS isn't out to make your life miserable, they just want to be paid what they are owed. If you continue to ignore your tax debt, they will resort to extreme measures to collect, and they do this through the tactics of levies and wage garnishments. The longer you wait, the smaller the window gets for you to qualify for wage garnishment relief.
Before the irs can exercise a levy or wage garnishment against you, they send you two letters of notice. The first letter is a warning (Notice of Intent to Levy), and if you do not respond by consulting professional tax help, they send the final notice (Notice to Levy) notifying you a wage garnishment will be officially executed against you.
If you are being threatened by an IRS wage garnishment or levy, the only option you have to stop the wage levy is to contact a professional wage garnishment attorney. Seeking experienced professional help is the first step in stopping a levy or garnishment, and developing a plan to comfortably satisfy your outstanding tax debt.
