The IRS can demand that your employer garnish your wages if you owe back taxes. However, there is help out there to avoid wage garnishment. The only thing you have to do is seek it out. Every year, the IRS sends out over 8 billion pages of forms and instructions. It is no wonder some of us get confused, and create tax problems for ourselves.
Until 1776, the United States paid taxes to the United Kingdom. After that the U.S. made its own tax decisions. In order to comply with the U.S. Constitution, the IRS must notify the individual of the garnishment or levy before it is put into place. They must also give the individual a chance to explain their side of the story. If the IRS made a mistake in their procedure, that may be the key to resolve tax problems that are effecting your finances.
