Stop IRS Wage Garnishment Proceedings?

Proving IRS Wage Garnishment Help is one of the trickiest and most difficult situations I deal with as a Tax lawyer and is different than getting a bank levy released.

You have almost no leverage. There’s no time for a tax payment plan, and you’re facing a situation where you may have to agree to a bad deal just to get your wages flowing again.

You or your tax lawyer will need to call the phone number on the wage levy notice. The IRS employee will want to go through your monthly income. They’ll also go over your monthly allowable expenses. With that info, they will come up with the monthly disposable income.

They’ll want you to pay the monthly disposable income before they agree to release the wage levy.

This may not sound so bad at first. Until you realize the monthly amount is greater than your actual ability to pay.

Sometimes you just have to agree and pay that amount until you can’t pay it anymore.

In the meantime, it’s a good idea to have some other collection alternative in mind.

Like an Offer in Compromise ready to send it once you can’t pay the ridiculous amount they demand you pay to release the wage levy.

If you can prove to the IRS that you have no monthly disposable income, you may be able to convince them to put you into hardship status.

This is the best way to get tax relief help. But it depends on your financial circumstances.
