Release and stop an individual taxpayer with a wage garnishment from the IRS or state tax agency

The IRS takes its responsibility for collecting the Federal Taxes from all individuals and businesses in the United States. They follow strict guidelines prescribed for them to follow in the IRC or Internal Revenue Code. Part of that code covers how they are able to garnish/levy/recover funds to satisfy an unpaid tax debt. One of the many tools that they have at their disposal is called the wage garnishment. This is an extremely effective tool and the IRC has very strict guidelines for the use and implementation of it.

What is an IRS Wage Garnishment, how to stop it?

An IRS Wage Garnishment is a levy that is imposed on a taxpayer for the sole purpose of obtaining the funds for the repayment of a tax debt owed to the Federal Government. For Los Angeles employees, or any other metro city in America, an IRS garnishment is sent directly to the employer of the person who owes the tax debt and they must send to the IRS the amount requested without question. Federal law dictates how much the IRS or any creditor is allowed to demand to be withheld by an employer.

Angelenos should know that the biggest difference between an IRS Wage Garnishment order and a typical creditor wage garnishment order is that the IRS does not need a court order to demand the levy be enforced. This is not the case for a creditor, they must obtain a court order in order to be able to demand that a business enforce the wage garnishment request.

How long can it be enforced?

Once the IRS Wage Garnishment is enforced it shall remain in place until the total tax debt has been satisfied. However, there are a certain set of circumstances that can change the enforcement of an IRS levy such as a wage garnishment. This circumstance can only be approved by the IRS and will be at the sole discretion of the IRS officer handling your specific tax case. The following are circumstances that can affect an IRS Wage Garnishment order:
● You pay the total amount of the back taxes due
● You request an Offer of Compromise with the IRS
● Request to be released from the tax debt by showing another party is responsible for the debt

Are there any exceptions?

Once an IRS Wage Garnishment has been enforced generally speaking it will remain there until such time that you have paid off the tax debt that you owe. This is to ensure that they will be paid in full and on time. However, there are exceptions to the rules when it comes to certain sources of money that you have coming in that can be exempted from the wage garnishment order. One of those circumstances is child support payments that you make that are taken out of your paycheck. Your employer can request by filling out a form that the money being deducted is not included in the order of repayment.

How can it be released?
Any IRS levy or penalty remains in place until the total amount of tax debt owed is completely satisfied by rule. However, there are circumstances that can occur that would allow an IRS Wage Garnishment to be released prior to it being paid off. Below are just a few examples:
● Pay off the balance owed in full
● Set up an installment plan to pay back balance
● Enter into a Compromise Agreement
