Wage Garnishment and Wage Seizures
The IRS wage garnishment (wage seizure) is a very powerful tool used to collect taxes owed through your employer. Once a wage garnishment is filed with an employer, the employer is required to collect a large percentage of each paycheck. The paycheck that would have otherwise been paid to the employee, instead will now be paid to the IRS. The wage garnishment stays in effect until the IRS is fully paid or until the IRS agrees to release the garnishment.
The IRS wage garnishment is filed with your employer. Your boss is required to collect a large percentage of each of your paychecks and pay it to the IRS until it is fully paid or the IRS agrees to release the garnishment. Your payday is now a payday for the IRS.
