How A Tax Attorney Can Assist With Wage Garnishment
The IRS can take part of your wages until you pay the entire amount. The wage garnishment order can leave you with less than half your gross monthly income to pay your bills.
Is Wage Garnishment Required?
The IRS must first send you an IRS audit letter Notice and Demand for Payment before it can garnish your wages. The IRS will issue a wage garnishment or order against your employer if payment is not received within the specified time. Seizure of your wages, and other assets, will also be initiated if no resolution is found.
Appeal to Your Rights
When the IRS decides to garnish your wages, they play tough. Your income will be garnished. This includes benefits such as social security and government benefits. The garnishment cannot be lifted unless:
- The entire tax debt has been paid
- If you are facing financial hardship
- The IRS is considering a payment plan or an offer in compromise
- You file for bankruptcy
There are some rights you have in the wage garnishment process. However, in most states, like California, these rights are up to you to exercise.
- Legal notification of garnishment is required.
- If the IRS notice contains inaccurate information, or if you feel you are not responsible for it, you can contest it.
- Certain types of income such as Social Security or veterans benefits may be exempted from garnishment. They could still be taken if they are not in your bank account.
- Although you can’t be fired if you have one wage garnishment, you will lose your protection if you have more than one.
You can challenge the garnishment if you believe the judgment was wrong or is causing undue damage to your finances.
