Wage Garnishment Removal


Facing issues with wage garnishment? Have our tax experts look into it and craft a plan to stop wage garnishment.

The IRS can use their power to collect 70% of your gross income if you’re W-2 employed, and up to 100% of your gross income if you’re on 1099. If you’re currently employed and owe back taxes, the IRS can use a wage garnishment to attempt to settle your tax debt.

Most people have a tough enough time on 100% of their paycheck, let alone 30%, making wage garnishment one of the most frustrating, humiliating, stressful, and financially debilitating experiences to go through.

One thing to keep in mind about the IRS and wage garnishments is that it’s not in their best interest to resort to these collection methods. The costs of collecting tax debt this way are high, requiring valuable resources that aren’t always desirable to the IRS from a financial standpoint.

Because of this reality, the IRS is often willing to negotiate. To begin the negotiation process, it’s crucial to make sure you’re compliant by filing any unfiled tax returns. But there’s far more to getting garnishment relief fast. Working with a professional firm like Alleviate will greatly improve your chances of fast results, since we’re experts and know exactly what to do, and accurately.

For most people, the first option for settling an IRS wage garnishment is requesting an installment agreement. It’s important to keep in mind, though, that if you work out a payment plan agreement, you absolutely must pay on time, every time. You only get one shot, and failing to keep your end of the deal almost guarantees the IRS will resort to more severe collection methods like bank levies and property seizures.

Another option that some may qualify for is the “Offer in Compromise.” If you qualify, you can submit an offer for a lesser amount than your total tax debt. In some cases, particularly when the amount is greater than legal action might collect successfully, the IRS does accept tax settlement negotiations. Alleviate Tax can help you determine your eligibility for an offer in compromise.

A possible last resort is the Hardship Tax Relief Petition. The advice and guidance of a well-qualified tax professional will ensure you draft and present the “currently non-collectible” proposal correctly. Alleviate Tax prides itself on its expertise in helping people like you get the maximum eligible assistance so you can move on with your life.

It’s not uncommon for the IRS to garnish as much as 70% of a taxpayer’s wages. This is done with the intention of encouraging taxpayers to contact the IRS about their tax debt.

There is a calculation for what wages are exempt from garnishment. This calculation primarily takes the taxpayer’s filing status and their number of dependents into consideration. For example, a taxpayer who files as single with no exemptions and has a weekly pay schedule only has $182.69 exempt from being garnished on their weekly paycheck. Another example is someone jointly filing as married with two dependents, which would result in $730.77 being exempt from each paycheck if paid bi-weekly.

If garnishment is creating a financial hardship for you and your family, you do have the right to request your evidence of hardship be reviewed. Help from an experienced tax professional like the analysts here at Alleviate Tax makes the whole process a lot easier.
