IRS Wage Garnishment

Unfortunately for taxpayers, both federal and state governments have the power to levy draconian penalties like wage garnishment. A wage garnishment arising from unpaid taxes can be actioned without a court order. The federal tax authorities also have up to 20 years to collect any overdue taxes, unlike the 5-year limitation that applies to the collection or enforcement of other kinds of debt.

If you’re already struggling financially or have medical bills to meet, the threat of 20 years of wage garnishment could completely destroy your present and future financial security. But don’t despair! Even after a wage garnishment is in place, there are things that can be done to stop it.

What is Wage Garnishment?

When you owe the IRS money, they will stop at nothing to get it back. This includes taking a big chunk of your earnings right out of your pay packet before it even gets to you. This is called garnishment.
A wage garnishment is a type of tax levy garnishment that the state or IRS uses to take a portion of your salary directly from your employer. Even though there are limitations, employers all too often forget to give their workers the Statement of Exemptions and Filing Status forms they need to fill out and send back to the IRS within three days. If this happens to you, it can lead to up to 75% of your wages being taken from you

When Can a Wage Garnishment Be Enforced?

There are various grounds for wage garnishment. The most frequent are as follows:

  • Not responding to the IRS or state tax authorities in time.
  • Failing to submit tax returns.
  • Owing tax debts that roll from year to year so continue to increase.

How Do State and Federal Wage Garnishments Work?

If you owe back taxes, especially to the state, it’s crucial to come up with a solution before a garnishment is in place; otherwise, you risk having your earnings withheld. If the garnishment is the consequence of unpaid federal taxes, it can be stopped or amended. However, once a garnishment for unpaid state taxes is in place, it often won’t be lifted until you pay in full, or the garnishment expires.

How Much Can They Deduct?

Depending on the state, up to 40% of your gross salary could be garnished. Once the wage garnishment is in effect, your only option is to submit your financial information with a petition requesting that they cut the garnishment by 10 to 12.5 percent.
According to federal law, the IRS is permitted to deduct the following amounts from your earnings until your tax obligation is settled in full:

  • If you have a W-2, all of your earnings less $197 per week can be deducted
  • If you have 1099 income, the IRS can take 100% and leave you with nothing.
  • If you receive income from Social Security, the IRS can take up to 15%.
