A wage garnishment (or wage levy) issued by the IRS is used to seize income from paychecks, commissions and other sources (even social security!) as a way to pay down tax debt. Taxpayers are given only thirty days from the date of Final Notice of Intent to Levy to pay the tax in full or to find a solution to your back taxes. Once the thirty days have passed, the IRS can begin a wage garnishment at any time (and employers must also be notified). A wage levy will remain in effect until the IRS notifies employers of its end.


A tax attorney through Direct Tax Relief can have your IRS wage levy released and can secure a collection hold on your account to ensure no further garnishments are attempted. Once this is done, methods for removing or limiting tax debt (like an Offer in Compromise, penalty abatement and installment agreement, among others) can begin.
