Wage Garnishment Assistance

Having back taxes — unpaid taxes from previous years — can result in significant financial and legal consequences. If your tax debt remains unpaid, the IRS may use wage garnishment to collect the money you owe. When this happens, money is taken directly from your paycheck and sent to the IRS.

If you’ve received a wage garnishment notice from the IRS, BC Tax can help. We offer wage garnishment representation to clients in Colorado and throughout the United States. Our licensed Enrolled Agents are uniquely qualified to negotiate with the IRS to help you preserve your income while meeting your debt obligation.

What Is Wage Garnishment?

Wage garnishment is a legal procedure through which a court orders a portion of a person’s earnings to be withheld to pay a debt. If the IRS believes you have back taxes, they may decide to garnish your wages, taking a certain amount of money from each of your paychecks until the full amount you owe is paid or you set up a payment plan with the IRS.

How Much of My Wages Can the IRS Garnish?

Title III of the Consumer Credit Protection Act (CCPA) limits how much of your earnings can be garnished. The amount of earnings subject to garnishment is based on your “disposable earnings” — the amount of money left over after legally required deductions are made. These deductions may include federal and state taxes, Medicare and Social Security.

Deductions not required by law — such as health insurance and retirement plan contributions — are not typically subtracted when calculating disposable earnings.

Under Title III of the CCPA, weekly garnishment can’t exceed either 25% of your disposable earnings or the amount at which your disposable earnings are 30 times greater than minimum wage — whichever amount is less.

How to Stop Wage Garnishment

Dealing with IRS wage garnishment can be stressful and overwhelming. Let the experts at BC Tax handle this difficult situation for you. We have the expertise to stop wage garnishment and settle your debt quickly.

Depending on your situation, we may try several tactics to stop your wage garnishment.

Challenge the Garnishment

If you believe the IRS made an error in what you owe, you can dispute the garnishment by filing an appeal. BC Tax can help you apply for an appeal and represent you during the hearing.

Make an Offer in Compromise

An offer in compromise allows you to settle your debt with the IRS for less than the amount you owe. Our experts can file and negotiate an offer in compromise on your behalf to reduce your debt.

Negotiate a Payment Plan

The IRS allows you to pay your back taxes over an extended period by setting up a payment plan. We can help you determine the best plan to resolve your debt while preserving your income and savings.

The best choice to solve IRS issues at a reasonable fee We received many solicitations about our tax issue. BC tax, LLC was professional and... diligent in every respect. Our issue was about and unexpected recapture of depreciation on a capital gain sale we made. I was not in a cash position to pay the entire tax when due. IRS imposed a substantial penalty for not paying the tax when due. BC Tax was able to negotiate with IRS to remove the penalty. My personal attempts to deal with IRS were frustrating and with out success. Colleen's help solved our issue quickly and in the manner we had discussed. We are very appreciative of her efforts.read more

Megan Bridge with BC Tax has been working on my issues with the IRS for about 15months. I had created an issue over 3-4 years by overpaying the... estimated Quarterly Taxes and applying the tax refund to the next years taxes. So, all was good as I never owed any additional tax above the paid Estimated Quarterly Taxes – except!, I didn’t follow up with a filed return. In 2021-22 The IRS issued huge penalties with interest for not filing timely returns. In early 2022 I filed the delinquent Tax Returns which I expected to clearup the Penalties & interest issues. However, I was getting nowhere with the IRS regarding the large penalties and interest. I asked BC TAX to help, and Megan Bridge took on my case and resolved the issue. Her ability to understand the terminology, access to the right people and the on-line information resulted in the IRS waiving the penalties and interest. Needless to say I would recommend Megan and BC TAX. Billread more
