State Wage Garnishments/Levies
State tax agencies typically garnish wages and levy bank accounts of unresponsive taxpayers who have failed to comply with state tax laws. In most cases, the state taxing authorities are much more aggressive than the IRS in their collection methodologies. They view you as a delinquent taxpayer who is attempting to evade paying taxes. When it comes to handling wage garnishments and bank levies, the state tax agencies actually prefer to work with a tax professional than directly with a taxpayer. The hiring of a tax professional is perceived to be a demonstration of intent to resolve your tax problem.
Our professionals at FinishLine Tax Solutions understand the process as well as the tax lingo making it less challenging on taxing authorities to do their jobs and thus increases the likelihood of a favorable resolution for both parties. The goal is to avoid reaching the point where a state wage garnishment has been applied. However, if a taxpayer has reached the point of wage garnishment and/or bank levies, then it is imperative that they take immediate and aggressive action. It is important for the taxpayer to understand that at this point all luxury of procrastination has been exhausted.
