Residents living in Texas are subject to wage garnishment by the IRS if they owe
taxes. A wage garnishment orders your employer to withhold a portion of your paycheck each pay period and send it to the IRS.
The only way to stop wage garnishment is to file for bankruptcy. Immediately upon filing bankruptcy, an automatic stay is ordered and all garnishments will be stopped. In some cases, you may even be able to get back some of the wages that were garnished.
If your wages are being garnished or are being threatened to be garnished it is important that you consult with a bankruptcy attorney to go over the options available to you.
