An IRS Wage garnishment is the process by which the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) directly deducts money from your wages, until such time as you have paid back the tax debt that you owe to them. The money is deducted directly from your weekly pay check by your employment, and then sent directly to the IRS. This process of wage garnishing can be a source of acute embarrassment, as well as hard feelings between your employer and yourself.

In most cases, wage garnishment should come as no surprise. The IRS will normally one garnish your wages after they have sent you repeated letters and warnings concerning the back taxes that you owe to them. Wage garnishment is one of the most aggressive and direct solutions that they can implement, but they will not do so until all other avenues have been exhausted.
There are several methods by which you can act to stop a wage garnishment. However, since you have most likely ignored all the earlier warnings and notices, it will be up to you to show why you are still unable to pay off your tax debt in a prompt and timely manner. You will need to seek the assistance of a qualified tax attorney in order to make a valid and credible claim in this regard.
