Did you know that the IRS has the right to garnish your wages or bank account funds in order to satisfy a tax debt? Dealing with the IRS is difficult enough, but once your paycheck or bank account has been garnished you are likely to experience a new realm of problems. However, it is never too late to stop your garnishment troubles and resolve your IRS debts.
What To Do
The most important thing is to contact the IRS. Unlike other creditors, the IRS has the ability to issue a garnishment order very quickly and generally meets no resistance with the court in doing so. Time is crucial when working with a wage garnishment order. A tax attorney can also help you develop a plan, get in contact with the IRS and negotiate on your behalf.
You must acknowledge your tax debts and begin to develop a plan with the IRS. Fortunately, the IRS offers two ways you can resolve your tax debts in a manner that should suit your budget. You may be eligible to repay your debts through an IRS installment plan or settle your debts with an Offer In Compromise. However, remember that the IRS holds all of the power in negotiating your options. You must successfully negotiate a deal before the IRS will lift the garnishment order.
