Attorney Mark Dutton Shares How You Can Stop a Wage Garnishment

Video Transcript

So how would one go about stopping a wage garnishment? You can stop a wage garnishment with the IRS by entering into some sort of resolution with them, typically an installment agreement – that’s a payment plan with the IRS. That stops a garnishment.

There are some prerequisites to be able to enter into an installment agreement with the IRS however. One is that you are compliant. And by compliant, it means you filed all the tax returns that the IRS is requiring you to file. Typically that is the past 6 years. If you have filed your tax returns for the last 6 years, you’re considered compliant by the IRS.

Another area of compliance is, if you’re self-employed, that you are making estimated tax payments. So those quarterly tax payments going toward this year’s – the current year’s – potential liability.
