Do you have any knowledge of owning tax from a previous year? If not I'd call them right away (actually, either way). I you get to them before they start the garnishment you can get this (either fixed) or make a payment arrangement

Expert:  Lane replied 1 month ago.

If it turns out that the tax debt is correct, often you can get the IRS to agree to an installment agreement.

...

If you can convince the IRS that the wage garnishment causes financial hardship, they might let up — at least until your financial situation improves. If you can’t pay for basic living expenses as a result of the wage garnishment, you’ll probably get them to agree to wait.

...

Also ... again, just trying to lay out all the options, understand that the IRS wage garnishment is specific to an employer. If you change employers, the IRS has to get a new garnishment, and that will take them several months.

But if this is NOT right ... (have your forms ready when you call and you should be able to see what's going on ... maybe they made a correction to th return and they didn't get it?) ... they DO make mistakes ... and they'll correct it

If you received an IRS tax bill or notice in the mail, call the phone number listed on your notice. You can also call the tax help line for individuals (1-***-***-****) or businesses (1-***-***-****) to speak with an IRS representative.
