IRS Wage Garnishment Procedures

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has specific wage garnishment procedures for collecting delinquent taxes. Wage garnishment is a legal process used to collect unpaid taxes from an individual’s salary or wages. The IRS will first send a Notice and Demand for Payment to the taxpayer, which explains how much they owe and when it must be paid by. If the taxpayer does not respond to this notice, the IRS may move forward with wage garnishment.

To begin the wage garnishment process, the IRS will issue an income withholding order (IWO) to the employer of the taxpayer requiring them to withhold up to 25% of their disposable earnings and remit them directly to the government. During this time, taxpayers may also be prohibited from making certain types of payments such as transferring money abroad or out of retirement accounts in order to evade paying back taxes.
