A: When you setup an installment agreement that stops the garnishment, however it frequently happens that the paperwork is not processed correctly and the garnishment does not stop, If that's the case contact your employer to see if they are processing it and if they have not received any paperwork from the Tax Dept. contact the Tax Dept. to have them resubmit. The good news is it does count against your tax owed, bad news you cannot get those amounts back.

If you're concerned about future garnishment the Tax Dept. does not garnish wages when an installment plan is in place and current. If you fail to make a payment on time they will issue a garnishment.
