If you have a delinquent balance on state taxes, State Tax Agencies may garnish the income owed to you by an employer or for a contracted service. Delinquent balances include taxes, penalties, fees, and interest, as well as non-tax debts owed to other government agencies and courts. Although every state sets its own limits regarding how much of a paycheck can be taken for a garnishment, Social Security and any other legally mandated monies may also be withheld.
Some State tax debts take precedence over most of other garnishments except for federal IRS tax debt, other federal agencies debt, child support and bankruptcy. The IRS (Federal Tax Agency) can also place a wage garnishment. Some states will lower or modify the wage levy but not completely remove it until you pay off your tax balance in full or show economic hardship. In some cases, a refusal to comply with a state wage garnishment order can be prosecuted criminally.
