Wage Garnishments

Posted by Kamyar Mehdiyoun, Esq. | Oct 20, 2023

The IRS and state taxing agencies such as Comptroller of Maryland are empowered to notify your employer of your delinquent taxes and demand that a portion of your wages be levied and remitted to them. IRS and tax-related wage levies can have devastating financial consequences. They not only can negatively affect your professional image and harm your employment prospects, they can also have long-term financial consequences. Unlike bank levies which are one-time events, IRS wage levies attach to your wages until the entire tax is paid. Therefore, if a wage levy isn't released immediately, it can continue for years. Wage levies are usually combined with other collection tools at the disposal of the IRS such as bank levies and tax liens.  Tax liens and levies also affect your credit score and can remain on your credit history for years. 

If your wages are being garnished by the IRS or by a state taxing agency such as the Comptroller of Maryland, contact Kamyar Mehdiyoun, Esq. by scheduling a free consultation.
