How to Get IRS Wage Levies Lifted

While the best course of action for getting IRS wage garnishments lifted will depend on the specifics of a person’s situation and tax debt, in general, some viable options can include:

  • Proving to the IRS that a person is in compliance – In some cases, mistakes may be made by IRS officials (or their automated systems), and people may be wrongfully targeted for wage garnishments.For instance, a person may have recently worked out a resolution regarding his tax debt with the IRS, but the computer systems may not yet reflect this, triggering a wage garnishment. In these cases, it will be necessary verify that the individual in question is in compliance with the IRS’ demands and, therefore, that the wage levy should be lifted.
  • Taking action to bring the individual into compliance – If a person is not in compliance, then specific steps will need to be taken to bring that individual into compliance with the IRS. This can involve, for example, filing taxes for any and all previous years for which a person did not file federal taxes.Here, it’s important to point out that the individual in question should avoid contact the IRS on his own, as IRS agents are trained to interrogate people to figure out what assets they may have (so the IRS can plan how to file liens or seize assets in the future if it needs to do so).
  • Working out a resolution with the IRS for the outstanding tax debt – If, upon bringing  a person into compliance with the IRS, it is revealed that the individual owes the IRS for back taxes, the final piece of this puzzle will be devising an acceptable plan for repaying or satisfying this debt.While this may involve immediately paying the tax debt in full or working out a payment plan, it can also involve getting the outstanding tax debt declared as “non-collectible” or working out an offer in compromise.

The bottom line is that resolving IRS wage levies can be a complicated process and that working with an experienced Denver tax law attorney at Goldman Law, LLC will be vital to ensuring these issues are resolved as beneficially and efficiently as possible.
