What to Do If the IRS Garnishes Your Wages

When it comes to notifying taxpayers that they have an outstanding balance, the IRS will always inform you by mail. So it is important to not disregard any mail addressed to you from the IRS. So the first thing you must do when it comes to wage garnishment is stay alert for any letters from the IRS! By doing this, you might be able to prevent IRS garnishments altogether.

Don't Be Surprised By An IRS Wage Levy

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.

Whatever You Do, Don’t Ignore the IRS!

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.
