State Wage Garnishment

State Wage Garnishment – How It Works and How to Stop It

A state wage garnishment is a letter from the state taxing authority to your employer.  The letter orders your employer to withhold money from each paycheck to send to the state.

How much money will be withheld, or garnished, from each paycheck?  The state rules and regulations for a state wage garnishment differ from state to state.  The state wage garnishment letter will provide your employer with a formula for calculating the amount to withhold in payment of a delinquent balance.  Generally, the state wage garnishment could be up to twenty five percent of each paycheck, and regarding court ordered child support payments, some states can withhold up to fifty percent from each paycheck for child support arrears, and up to 60 % for child support arrears if you are not supporting another dependent!

How long will my employer continue to garnish my wages?  The state wage garnishment letter will tell your employer how much of a delinquent balance you owe.  Your employer will continue to garnish wages from each paycheck until that delinquent amount has been paid in full.

What if I am self-employed?  If you are self-employed, the state will send a state wage garnishment letter to each customer/Accounts Receivable.  Does a customer or client owe you money?  The state wage garnishment letter will order each client in your Accounts Receivable to pay it to the state!  The state wage garnishment letter could order each client in Accounts Receivable to pay up to one hundred percent!

Delinquent balances include taxes, penalties, fees and interest.  Delinquent balances can also include any non-tax debts owed to other state government agencies and courts, such as Workers’ Compensation Insurance Premiums and Court Ordered Child Support.

However, Social Security and any other legally mandated monies, such as disability,cannot be garnished by a state.

State tax wage garnishments take precedence over all other wage garnishments or levies.  The only exceptions are court ordered child support payments and federal tax debt.  The IRS can also issue a wage garnishment letter to collect on delinquent federal tax balances.

How can I stop a state wage garnishment?  Generally, most states will not agree to stop a state wage garnishment with a state installment agreement.  However, most states will agree to lower the amount of the state wage garnishment or modify itif you can show hardship.

Coast One Tax Group can reduce the amount of a state wage garnishment if you can show you are in hardship.  If your state provides a state offer in compromise resolution to state tax debt and you qualify, Coast One Tax Group can stop a state wage garnishment.

Coast one helped me out when I was up against the IRS

Coast one financial group helped me out when I was up against the IRS with a debt of close to $15,000. My ex husband left me in a bad place financially having lied on our last joint tax return. I also had some health issues that kept me from paying my taxes and instead paying for health insurance. Coast one handled all correspondence to and from the IRS as well as kept in touch with me throughout the whole experience. I settled for pennies on the dollar and can now resume my life tax debt free. I\'m so grateful for their help.

My husband and I had about $40,000 in tax debt

My husband and I had about $40,000 in tax debt from some difficulties we had experienced a few years ago. The *** refused to make payment arrangements with us after we’d broken our past agreement following a job and personal losses. We’d seen these tax relief advertisements but wondered if it would work for us. I got an offer to help us by Coast One Financial Group.. I called them and left a message. An attorney called me back and asked if he told me for a few thousand (about $3000 I think) I he could help eliminate $10’s of thousands of dollars of *** debt. I said i’d Love to but didn’t have enough to pay them. He offered us a payment arrangement that we could afford and we did it. We ended up paying the *** $259.00 in exchange for eliminating $40900 of tax debt. We got the letter this week that our tax lien will be lifted within 30 days. This year we filed our taxes and paid them in full! What a relief and burden was lifted thanks to Coast One Financial and their attorneys. I would recommend them to everyone. They are amazing!
