Wage garnishment is the most common type of levy, and usually the biggest surprise when it happens. It’s the process of deducting money from your salary. I.R.S. wage garnishment is a powerful tool for collection, and you should know it can be stopped today.
The I.R.S. doesn’t need for a court order, so you may not see it coming. They can and will garnish up to 100% of income in some circumstances, however the federal garnishment limit on a weekly basis is the lower of (A) 25% of one’s disposable earnings (what’s left after mandatory tax deductions), or (B) the total amount by which one’s weekly wage exceeds 30 times the federal hourly minimum wage. Wage garnishments continue until the entire debt is paid or arrangements are made to pay off the debt with the I.R.S.

When a garnishment is served on an employer, under law the business must act quickly. When processing payroll, sometimes there is not enough money in the employee’s net pay to satisfy all of the garnishment. Employers receive a notice telling them to withhold a certain amount of their employee’s wages for payment and they cannot refuse to garnish wages until and unless a release is obtained. Employers must correctly calculate the amount to withhold and make the deductions until the garnishment expires.
I.R.S. wage garnishment can negatively affect your credit and the ability to receive a loan or open a bank account, and they can continue until the entire debt is paid off. Perfect Tax Relief can help in removing your IRS Wage Garnishment, many times within 24 hours.
