If you owe the IRS for back taxes, one strategy they will employ is to garnish your wages. What is the process for an IRS garnishment?
Once you have entered the IRS collections process and the IRS determines you are not responding to their collection efforts, the first step in a garnishment is to send the Final Notice of Intent to Levy and a second letter advising your right to a hearing on the matter.
30 days later the IRS will begin to garnish your wages. They will follow a prescribed formula, and you may be shocked at the amount of money they take from your paycheck. Once this begins it is very difficult and cumbersome to affect.
