IRS Wage Garnishment
We Solve IRS Tax Problems

If you are behind on paying your tax debts you may have received a notice of wage garnishment. This can be scary for many reasons. Most likely, you are behind on your tax debts because you are having difficulty making ends meet. If you are experiencing financial trouble, having your wages garnished is only going to cause more financial trouble.

What Does This Mean?

Wage garnishment occurs when a lien holder, in this case the IRS, notifies your employer you are behind on your payments. An order is issued that requires the employer to pay the lien holder a specified amount out of your check before you receive your wages.  This garnishment order can take a significant amount of your income for several months until the debt is repaid.

What Can I Do?

Fortunately, you do have a few options to prevent your paycheck from being garnished by the IRS. The first option is to pay your tax debt in full. If you are unable to pay your tax debt in full, you may be able to request to repay your debts through an installment plan or settle your tax debts through an offer in compromise. Both of these programs can stop wage garnishment and help you repay your tax debts.

Owing the IRS money can be stressful enough and having your wages garnished may seem like a punishment. When times are tough, it is hard to find help with your debt payments and protect yourself from further financial disaster.
