Wage Garnishment Questions

How long does it take to get a garnishment released?

That depends on the following factors. All unfiled tax returns need to be filed before your garnishment can be released. We can complete tax returns within 48 hours of receiving all of the information needed to do the return. Then a settlement needs to be entered into before the garnishment can be released. Different settlement options take more or less time to complete than others. Also, the more you owe the more information the IRS will want before a settlement is reached and the garnishment is released.

It is not uncommon for us to have a release before your next pay period. Depending on how far you are in your payment cycle at work, we will every effort to prevent the garnishment on your next pay check.

What can I do to speed up the process?

The quickest way to get a release is to have the IRS fax a release right to your payroll department. We will need the name, fax and phone number of the person in charge of your payroll.

The quicker you provide information to prepare unfiled returns and settlement the quicker your wage garnishment will be released.

Is there any other way I can stop the garnishment so that I don’t lose my next paycheck if I have lots of unfiled returns and a complicated settlement?

If you are in good standing with the company or are considered a valuable employee with management, or have been employed a long time at your company, you can go the owner or manager and ask them to give you sufficient time to get a release without actually having any of your paycheck sent to the IRS.
