Wage Garnishment Personalized and Compassionate Attention to Your Case.

How Wage Garnishment Works

If you have unpaid taxes, the IRS may use collection methods such as calls, letters and visits in an attempt to recover them. Where these prove unsuccessful and no other solution is put in place by the taxpayer, it is not uncommon for the IRS to implement wage garnishments. The IRS notifies your employer that they must withhold a significant percentage of your pay and submit it to the IRS. If your employer fails to comply, they are liable for serious penalties. If you are self-employed, the IRS may place a levy on your accounts receivable and so have your clients paying the IRS instead of you.

Not only does this have a disastrous effect on your budget, it can also discredit your business across your client base. Even without business concerns, the damage a wage garnishment can cause is immense. 80-90% of your paycheck may be withheld and very quickly leave you and your family without enough to live on. If you have an overdue tax bill, don't wait to find most of your paycheck missing; talk to an attorney about what can be done to help you avoid this outcome. If the IRS is already garnishing your wages, a Miami tax attorney may also be able to help you to have this wage levy released.
