Most people who get their wages garnished don’t understand how or why it even happened in the first place. Chances are, if you owe the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) tax money, they’ll find a way to let you know. The primary source the IRS uses to communicate is by letter. They do not correspond by email, and the only time they will communicate by phone is if you call a representative.
Ignoring notices from the IRS is what many taxpayers do, and then wonder why their wages are being levied and garnished. Although the IRS will not garnish a taxpayer’s wages without notifying them first which gives them a chance to resolve the issue, the IRS can send their notice to any address that is on file for you. So, you may never receive the IRS notice.
Wage garnishment is the IRS last resort to collect what is owed to them. When it gets to this point, the IRS has the right to withdrawal the maximum amount that the government will allow.
