End Wage Garnishment


You have received notice that the IRS is going to apply a wage garnishment to your paycheck. What exactly does that mean? Well, it means that the IRS can notify your employer that you owe back taxes. Your employer is then required by law to send a significant portion of each of your paychecks directly to the IRS to offset the debt.

The dollar amount sent to the IRS for your wage garnishment depends on your filing status, the number of exemptions you claim and how often you get paid. Wage Garnishment can, and usually will, lead to a financial nightmare.

As Enrolled Agents, the Tax Experts at Tax Pros Plus, we never advise any taxpayer to take on the IRS on their own. However, If you do nothing, the IRS will continue to garnish your paycheck until your back taxes are paid in full.

Our Tax Experts will work with the IRS to negotiate the full or partial release of the wage garnishment if you qualify for relief. Depending upon your individual circumstances, our Enrolled Agents may be able to arrange an Installment Agreement to pay the IRS a specified dollar amount every month until the back taxes paid. Once the Installment Agreement is in place, we may be able to negotiate an Offer in Compromise and settle your tax debt for less than the actual liability, depending on your individual financial circumstances. Another option is to be placed in a Currently Not Collectible status, in which you may not have to make payments to the IRS at all, again depending on your individual financial circumstances.

If you receive notice of a wage garnishment, contact our Tax Experts immediately. Our Enrolled Agents have years of experience dealing with the IRS. You can face the IRS with confidence when you have the Tax Experts from Tax Pros Plus on your side. Don’t become another IRS statistic.
