What is a Wage Garnishment Release?

A wage levy is used to seize your wages, commissions or other income (often called a garnishment).  The IRS can even garnish your Social Security income!  You have only 30 days from the date of a Final Notice of Intent to Levy to either pay the tax in full or to find a solution to your back taxes.  Ignoring the notice, or doing nothing, will make matters much worse.  Once the 30 days has passed, the IRS does not have to give any further notice before seizing your wages.

 

Direct Tax Relief can have your IRS wage levy released and secure a collection hold on your account.  While your account is placed on a collection hold, our Tax Attorney will carefully analyze and evaluate your situation to determine the best tax solution available for you.  These solutions range from settling your debt through an Offer in Compromise, having penalties removed by submitting a Penalty Abatement, making comfortable payments through an Installment Agreement, or preparing your un-filed tax returns.

The IRS can levy your wages or accounts receivable and all other sources of income.  Besides issuing a wage levy to your employer, the IRS can also issue a wage levy to various businesses that you work with as an independent contractor.  The individual or business that the IRS sends the levy notice to is obligated by law to act in accordance with the levy instructions and mail any money that was payable to you directly to the IRS instead.   In effect, your IRS tax problems also become the problem of your employer since they have to take additional time and resources to handle the levy.

 

Wage levies remain in effect until the IRS notifies the employer that the wage levy has been released.  If no action is taken on your part, the wage levy will continue until your tax liability is paid in full. After the IRS takes their share, there usually is not enough left over to pay the rent, car payment, or buy groceries. It is crucial that you have the proper representation, someone who is knowledgeable about tax law and IRS procedures.
