The old saying is that you can not avoid death or taxes. In the United States anyone who earns money is required to pay income taxes. Many Americans e file their taxes. By 1990 all fifty states had the option of e filing, one year earlier in 1989 it was available in just 36 states.
All of the governments within the United States provide tax exemptions for some income, property, or people. Until 1776, people in the American Colonies had to pay taxes to the United Kingdom. Today, Americans pay federal taxes to the IRS.
When someone owes more money than he or she can afford to pay, they may be subjected to a tax levy or to IRS wage garnishments. Of course, the best way of stopping a garnishment is to avoid it in the first place. However, if the IRS has already started garnishing your wages, you may be wondering, “how can I stop garnishment of my paycheck?” There are steps that can be taken for stopping a garnishment. Oftentimes, IRS garnishments can be negotiated by simply contacting the IRS. If you are able to set up a payment schedule, and start making the required payments on time each month, you may be able to have the garnish lifted.
