What is Wage Garnishment?
If you are in debt, one of the ways that creditors and other agencys collect the money they are owed is through wage garnishment. With wage garnishment, the creditor can request a court order from a judge to legally withhold a portion of your income as payment for your debt.
However, unlike other creditors, the IRS does not have to obtain a court order to garnish your wages – and they may be able to withhold more of your income.
If you have received a notice from the IRS and or need to stop the IRS from garnishing your wages, the time to act is now. The sooner you put a plan into action, the better your chances are of avoiding wage garnishment.

My initial meeting with Darrin was reassuring, hopeful and non-judgmental.
“I left the office with an action plan and a future. Peace of mind is the most important benefit of the many. Constant worry and dread had become a horrible way of life.”
The peace of mind alone, was worth it!
“Darrin and his staff are extremely friendly and amazingly helpful. A huge weight was taken off our shoulders.”
We left our first meeting feeling like there was hope!
“We could not have imagined a more positive outcome. We were, and still are, ecstatic about what you guys did for us. You gave us back our lives, renewed our business and made it possible to sleep at night… priceless!!”
I could tell right away that I went to the right person!
“I’ve never had a feeling of someone fighting for me like this before because I never had an attorney actually understand how this situation felt.”
Everyone including Attorney Mish is respectful and helpful!
“Attorney Mish is actually available. He spoke to me on the phone as if I was his only client; overall, he is outstanding!!”
How Does Wage Garnishment Work?
If you owe the IRS back taxes, they have the right to garnish your employment wages. The IRS can take money that is due to you through your paycheck each week or payment period in order to satisfy the debt you owe them. Fortunately, you will receive notice of this before it happens, which gives you time to act.
If you are being threatened with wage garnishment or your wages are already being garnished, remember that:
- The IRS is legally obligated to send you a notice of your outstanding balance and the date by which you must pay your balance
- The IRS does not need to get court judgment before garnishing your wages
- The amount of money the IRS can take from your paychecks depends on your deduction rate and how many dependents you have
How Much Can The IRS Garnish Your Wages?
Generally, the IRS does not garnish all of an individual's wages. However, if you have multiple jobs, the IRS may garnish all of the wages from one employer. Unfortunately, there is no clear cut answers on how much the IRS can garnish from your wages. The wage garnishment limit is based on how many dependents you have and your standard deduction amount.
