Garnishment is when money is legally withheld from your paycheck and sent to another party. With respect to unpaid taxes, garnishment is the legal process that instructs a third party to deduct payments directly from the taxpayer’s wages or bank account.
Wage garnishment occurs when the IRS or state tax authorities force your employer to withhold a portion of your earnings/paycheck. This can be financially disastrous for you and put you in a position where you can’t pay the monthly bills for you and your family.
Our team of tax professionals knows how negotiate with the IRS and state tax authorities to lift the wage garnishment order and create a plan that does not cause you undue financial hardship.
