"How Can I Stop IRS Wage Garnishment?"
1. Don't Ignore the IRS
The IRS has much broader powers than a private creditor and they aggressively pursue enforced collection activities if you ignore them. One of the strongest tools they have is the power to garnish your wages, and they can do so even without a judicial determination.
When the IRS decides garnish your wages, they instruct your employer to send a majority of your paycheck to the IRS to pay off your tax debt. This deprives you of the money you need to support yourself and your family and it brings your employer into your tax issues, resulting in embarrassment and possibly the loss of your job.
2. The IRS must give you notice before they garnish your wages
Before they garnish your wages, the IRS is required by law to issue a specific collection letter containing a demand for you to pay your tax bill, and you must have failed to respond. Next, the IRS will send you a final notice of intent to garnish your wages and you will have only 30 days potentially to stop it. If you fail to take action during the statutorily defined time frame, the IRS will notify your employer to garnish your wages.
