And what’s worse is, your employer is required by law to remit a significant portion of each paycheck directly to the IRS to satisfy the garnishment order to pay off your unpaid tax debt.
What amazes me as a tax professional, is that most taxpayers continue ignoring the IRS by not responding to the tax levy, not knowing that the IRS will continue garnishing their paychecks until their tax debt is paid in full with a lot of penalties and interest too.
If you have a tax levy then you need to know that with our firm, you do not have to take on the IRS by yourself, we actually do not recommend self-representation as you do not know the tax laws, your options nor do you know your rights as a taxpayer. We specialize in tax representation and will work with the IRS to negotiate the full or partial release of the wage garnishment, tax levy, if you qualify for tax relief, resulting in saving your paycheck!
