State Tax Levies and Wage Garnishments


A wage garnishment or wage levy forces your employer to withhold wages from your paycheck and turn that amount over to the state tax authority to be applied toward paying your state tax debt.  State tax wage garnishments are continuous in nature, which means they last until the tax debt for which they have been applied is satisfied, you lose or quit your job, or you reach a negotiated agreement with the state taxation authority.


Stopping a Wage Garnishment

If the state tax collector has levied a wage garnishment against you, it can be stopped. While you my not be financially able to make full payment of the tax debt to the state taxation authority, there are additional methods to end the wage garnishment that do not involve quitting your job. Tax attorney Ken Sheppard, Jr. can review available options, such as setting up a tax payment plan, negotiating an offer in compromise with the state tax authority, or filing bankruptcy.


Appealing a Wage Garnishment

An IRS wage garnishment may be successfully appealed if the state tax authority failed to properly follow procedures in assessing the tax levy. At Sheppard Law Offices, we have helped many of our clients win tax levy appeals.
