Why is dealing with wage levies so difficult?

Wage levies are so difficult to deal with because they are so time-sensitive.

When you receive a levy on your wages, your employer is required to honor that levy to deduct money from your paycheck at the appropriate amount and remit it to the IRS the next time that you get paid.

When you receive a levy or garnishment on your paycheck, it might turn out that your next paycheck is in a week, which means you only have one week to solve the problem.

Maybe you get paid every two weeks, in which case you have a maximum of two weeks to solve the problem, if they received the levy at the very beginning of the pay period.

A problem arises when you have a Wage Levy and you’re looking for an acceptable solution to the IRS, but you have some unfiled returns.

In order to get some type of acceptable solution to the IRS, you need to be current on all of your filings.

You need to obtain all of the wage and income transcripts, all of the income that was reported to the IRS, and you need to pull together all of your deductions, your itemized deductions, so that you can prepare those tax returns.

The difficulty is you have one or two weeks to do this.

It just really depends upon your employer, when they receive the levy and when your next paycheck is.

So to answer the question of what makes solving these Wage Levy problems so difficult, it is simply that we are on a very short, one or two week timeframe.

Sometimes we can turn it around that quickly and get the Wage Levy released before it’s honored by the IRS and let you keep 100% of your paycheck.

Sometimes the wage levies could be in effect for a pay period or two, depending upon how long it takes us to pull together the tax return and collection information that the IRS needs to enter into some type of satisfactory arrangement.
