If you’ve had an IRS wage garnishment, that should not normally be a permanent solution to your tax problem. With an IRS wage garnishment, the IRS (or the state in some cases) is trying to get your attention. If you continue to ignore them, the IRS wage garnishment will continue until the amount they say you owe has been paid in full. That could be a very, very long time.
On the other hand, if you are properly represented, an IRS wage garnishment may not even have to happen. If you approach a company like Kansas city Tax Mediation, for example, and give us enough time before your payroll is cut, we will approach the IRS. Wage garnishments can be released by a knowledgeable represetative.
In some cases, an IRS wage garnishment is issued based on amounts that the taxpayer does not even really owe. In these cases, not only can the IRS wage garnishment be lifted, but the money collected can be refunded. This may be the case when the IRS has filed tax returns on your behalf. The state of Kansas in particular is known to garnish wages when no money is actually owed.
