A garnishment is where a creditor, such as the IRS, can send a notice to your employer to pay your wages to the creditor. The IRS can do this without a lawsuit or judgment unlike other creditors. Now the IRS does have to have the tax be assessed and has to provide you with your full collection due process rights but after this they can take actions to garnish your wages.

At Carr Law Firm we can meet with you to see what can be done to quickly stop the garnishment.

The Internal Revenue Service and State and Local Taxing Authorities have standards and forms whereby they can assess the ability to pay of the taxpayers. These forms typically request to see what assets the taxpayers have, the taxpayer’s current monthly income, and the taxpayer’s current monthly expenses. With this information the taxing agencies can determine the ability and the amount of the taxpayer to pay. The Internal Revenue Service and its agents and employees have to generally comply with the collection standards applicable in the Internal Revenue Manual.

At the Carr Law we have the ability, knowledge and have been able to evaluate the taxpayer’s financial situation and the applicable guidelines and then make arguments for the taxpayer as to the appropriate acceptable amount that the taxpayer could afford and the taxing authority could accept in reasonable payments.

The Internal Revenue Service has the power to levy (garnish/seize) bank accounts, wages, payments from 3rd parties owed to the taxpayer, 401K accounts, stock brokerage accounts. The IRS has more power than most, if not all creditors, as there are very few exemptions or protected assets from which they can seize; basically anything is free game to the IRS to levy/seize. For example the IRS can levy the majority of your wages when most other creditors can only levy a portion, i.e. in many states only 25%, also generally social security is exempt from levy, however the IRS can levy social security benefits.

At Carr Law if you are wanting to avoid a tax levy or even under a current tax levy, we can consult with you and come up with the best plan of action to avoid any future levies and/or stop current levies.

The Internal Revenue Service can file a Notice of Federal Tax Lien which can attach to all property. This Federal Tax Lien also can have negative impacts on your credit score. In cases the IRS will remove federal tax liens, for example, generally speaking, under the Fresh Start Initiative if the balance owed is below $25,000 and the taxpayer enters into a direct debit installment agreement that pays back that taxes owed in full typically in at least 60 months or before the collection statute expiration date expires then the IRS, after the taxpayer typically has had 3 direct debit payments made, would generally remove the Notice of Federal Tax Lien.

At Carr Law we can assist in examining if a lien removal is possible in your case and what can be done to avoid any liens.

Some taxpayers just don’t have any ability to pay their back taxes. This status is not for all and the taxing authorities of course require proof to substantiate such hardship claims. If after going through the taxpayer current monthly income and applying them to national standards and local standards and the taxpayers net monthly income is zero or negative then the taxpayer could qualify for currently not collectible status. The taxing authorities will look into the status to see if anything has changed at least yearly or bi-yearly.

Contact Carr Law today to assist you with your tax liability including assistance with seeing if you qualify for hardship status and if so having you placed on hardship status.

For those who qualify, Chapter 7 provides a Fresh Start to individuals. Chapter 7 wipes away most debts, including credit cards, payday loans, repossession deficiency balances, most judgments, some tax obligations, and personal loans. Most debtors retain or keep most of their assets and personal possessions after filing chapter 7. State and Federal law dictate what individuals are entitled to keep. Our Attorneys will advise you what property you get to keep and what property, if any, is at risk. Typically, debtors keep their homes, cars, clothes, furniture, wedding rings, 401(k), IRA, and personal possessions.

Let us help you make a rationale decision and instruct you how to leave your home. With our Tax Attorneys, we will also let you know of the tax consequences of losing a home.

Our Attorneys have worked out several agreements that benefits all parties involved while avoiding unnecessary legal expenses and conflict.

Due to the economy, many local businesses are facing tough times. Many have borrowed money to keep their business afloat. Many of these loans have high interest rates and cumbersome terms. Chapter 11 bankruptcy is a form of bankruptcy reorganization available to individuals, corporations and partnerships. It has no limits on the amount of debt, as Chapter 13 does. It is the usual choice for large businesses seeking to restructure their debt. Individuals usually file Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 rather than Chapter 11. The debtor usually remains in possession of its assets, and operates the business under the supervision of the court and for the benefit of creditors. The debtor in possession is a fiduciary for the creditors.

For those who do not qualify for Chapter 7 or for those trying to save their home from foreclosure may be able to file a Chapter 13, which is commonly known as “reorganization”. A Chapter 13 typically lasts only from 3 to 5 years and consists of the debtor making regular monthly payments to the Trustee assigned to his or her case. The most common question is “What are my payments going to be?” Our skilled Attorneys will analyze your information and then determine the smallest payment legally possible. However, the actual amount of the payment will typically not be known until the debtor files for relief under Chapter 13. But, rest assured that the payment will not be more than you can afford. Our Attorneys will work with you to assess a fair and reasonable monthly budget. Typically, your payment to the Trustee will not exceed the amount that is left over each month, according to your budget.

Our Attorneys understand the law, which allows us to help you in the complicated world of Bankruptcy.

The Internal Revenue Code requires every employer to withhold Social Security taxes, Medicare taxes, and income taxes from the wages of its employees. The portion of Social Security and Medicare taxes withheld from the employees’ wages, along with an additional contribution of Social Security tax made by the employer, are commonly referred to as "Payroll Taxes" or "Employment Taxes." The combination of Payroll Taxes actually withheld from an employee's wages (net of the employer's contribution), plus the income taxes that are actually withheld from an employee's wages, are collectively referred to as "Withholding Taxes" or "Trust Fund Taxes."
