Who Can Garnish My Wages?
Garnishing wages is a legal action used by creditors to collect unpaid debts from individuals. When wages are garnished, the creditor receives a portion of the debtor's income directly from their employer. Knowing who can garnish your wages is important for protecting yourself financially and understanding your rights as an employee.
The most common types of creditors who can garnish your wages include the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), federal student loan lenders, state tax authorities, and childcare providers. The IRS can also take money out of bank accounts without filing a lawsuit if you fail to pay taxes due. It’s worth noting that credit card companies and other private lenders typically cannot garnish your wages without filing a lawsuit first and obtaining a court order. Additionally, bankruptcies do not prevent creditors from pursuing garnishment actions against delinquent debtors in certain cases.
