Why Dealing With An IRS Wage Levy / Wage Garnishment Is So Difficult?

The reason dealing with an IRS Wage Levy is so difficult is, when you receive a Wage Levy / Wage Garnishment from the IRS and it goes to your employer, your employer is required by law to honor the Wage Levy, the bank levy, the Wage Levy on your next pay day.

If your next pay day is coming up in a week, that gives you a week to solve the problem.

By solving the problem, I’m talking about putting some kind of acceptable solution into place that is acceptable to the IRS so that they give you a Release of Levy.

With that Release of Levy, your employer disregards the levy; and they are no longer obligated to withhold money from that levy.

When you receive the Wage Levy / Wage Garnishment from the IRS, you then have at least one pay day until you can get the levy released, and sometimes two pay periods, depending upon when the Wage Levy is received.

But what makes this so difficult is that you only have one to two pay days to get the Wage Levy released.

Some of the things you might have to do is prepare documents and file tax returns, you might have to enter into an Installment Agreement or get set up as Currently Not Collectible, but we only have one to two weeks.

So what makes this so very difficult is you don’t have a whole lot of time to do so before the Wage Levy becomes effective and your employer starts taking money out of your paycheck and sending it in to the IRS.
