Wage garnishment is one of the hardest, most humiliating things the government can do to you. You’re working your butt off for every cent, and suddenly the government starts taking a bite out of each and every paycheck.
More literally, wage garnishment is when the IRS orders your employer to withhold a portion of your paycheck until your debt is paid off. It can make it tough to live a normal life, even pay the bills. Your employer has no choice in the matter—and the IRS may seize as much as 75% of your pay.
While it’s illegal for an employer to fire an employee due to wage garnishment, it never helped any employee for their boss to know about their tax problems.
A wage garnishment release may be the solution.
When a tax settlement with the IRS could sink your ship, if the taxes the IRS is assessing aren’t correct, or there’s little chance you can repay what the IRS says you owe, an “offer in compromise” (OIC) may be your best strategy.
It’s not for everyone, but for those that can’t fully pay off their tax debt, an OIC can be a real lifesaver.
In simple terms, an OIC is a crafted compromise that cuts down the total amount paid to the IRS—a lot. Often, it results in a payment of less than one-fourth the original debt.
It’s an out-of-court agreement, created and approved by Congress to help taxpayers, and it stops IRS collections activities. In certain situations it’s the best way to resolve a tough situation.
When you’re experiencing an IRS levy, it can create an overwhelming feeling of panic and stress. We understand that the money the IRS is threatening to take is usually required for rent, food, a car payment or other urgent need. That’s why we make the release of a levy our priority.
We regularly stop levies within 24 hours of becoming a client. Your PTR manager knows what it takes and will immediately get to work on your behalf.
If you have a levy, it is important to act fast as there are time limits and additional requirements that the IRS can impose depending on your situation. Once the IRS collects a levy, the money cannot be recovered.
If you’re experiencing severe economic hardship—in other words, you really can’t pay the IRS anything—and still owe taxes, your debt may be deemed “currently not collectible.”
Without disposable income or resources to pay tax debt, Apex Tax Defense may be able to qualify you for this CNC option, which halts all collections activities.
Once your account is in CNC status, the government typically won’t garnish your wages or come after your assets with liens or levies. However, the government can come after you again later on down the road.
Trying to assess whether or not you would qualify for CNC status is best done in partnership with an expert like Apex Tax Defense, since such negotiations can be tricky. Interest and penalties, for example, can continue to grow while in CNC status. On the other hand, the IRS typically won’t go after an asset if you don’t have 20 percent equity in it, or if the cost of seizing it is more than it’s worth.
IRS installment agreements or plans are one of the most common ways taxpayers resolve debts with the IRS. While common, they can also be tricky.
Installment agreements, also known as negotiated payment plans, are generally better options than a Wage Garnishment, Tax Lien, Bank Levy or IRS Seizure. There are different types of agreements, including formal or informal, streamlined, guaranteed and partial pay.
In some cases, extenuating circumstances can mean it’s best to negotiate the total amount of the debt before setting up an installment agreement. Also, it’s important you negotiate an installment agreement you can really pay each month.
I had a payroll tax issue that unfortunately ballooned to over $245,000. Through Mike’s hard work and diligent efforts, Mike was able to negotiate a settlement of $18k. Very Happy!
We were pleased by the attention we received and the patience displayed by Mr. Moran and his firm. They always responded to our questions in a timely manner and made everything easy to understand.
I was audited two years in a row, assessed thousands in tax and penalties. Mike was able to get BOTH years to a ZERO balance! Thank you so much for your help!
Mike and The Apex Tax Defense team are lifesavers! They made sure my LLC was handled correctly. They calculated my estimated tax payments so I would be current with the IRS and shielded me from any estimated tax penalties. Their help, knowledge and quick response is top notch! I’m so very grateful to have them on my side – thank you!
Apex Tax Defense really saved me – I had $77,000+ of IRS tax/penalties/interest and they were able to work out an offer in compromise for $7500! What a relief to get this off my back! Highly recommend.
Mike Moran and his team are top notch, extremely professional and way ahead of everyone in the industry. Mike and his team have always been there for me and my family and I continue to recommend them to all of my business contacts. Get ahead of the game and start your planning with Mike and his team!
