One of the most common ways the IRS collects back taxes is to issue a wage garnishment. The IRS will legally take money directly from your paychecks to cover what you owe on your back taxes. These wage garnishments can continue for months or years, and employers must comply with a wage garnishment order anyone who has had an IRS wage garnishment will tell you that often there is little money left over.

How To Resolve A Wage Garnishment

If you can pay your back taxes right away, do that — and it will eliminate the wage garnishment. But if you’re unable to write out a big check to the IRS, try to immediately set up a payment plan. Having a payment plan will stop a wage garnishment. 

But what if you can’t afford the payment plan? The IRS is not known for consumer-friendly payment plans. Well, there are other possible ways to resolve the wage garnishment, but it’s best to consider these options with the guidance of a tax professional. 

You might qualify for some sort of Installment Payment Plan, or even for a Fresh Start Program or an Offer In Compromise Program. A tax professional can guide you on these options. While these options are available, they are not easy to negotiate, which is why discussing them with a tax professional and getting legal guidance is so important.
