A wage garnishment is a seizure by the IRS that forces tax payments towards your overdue tax debt. The IRS will order an employer to collect part of their employees’s paycheck and, remit it directly to the IRS. Employers, if they are smart, usually comply with wage garnishment orders since, the IRS holds them responsible for payments if they do not.
An IRS Wage levy will remain in effect until, full payment of unpaid back income taxes is made. IRS Wage garnishments cause taxpayers unnecessary hardship and embarrassment since, the IRS notifies payroll employees about unpaid income tax debts.
Taxpayers can try to remove an IRS wage garnishment on their own by entering into an IRS installment agreement. In addition, the law requires the IRS follow strict guidelines before applying an IRS wage garnishment.
First of all, you should understand the IRS has attempted to contact you regarding your unpaid back income taxes. Since, you didn’t either make any arrangements to pay your income tax debt or you couldn't keep your IRS installment agreement, the IRS had no choice but to garnish and seize your paycheck.
