Wages Withheld Due to Court Orders

One of the main types of wage garnishing is when someone loses a case in court and is ordered to pay a certain amount of money to a creditor or other entity. The court order is given to the person’s employer and the amount is then taken from their paycheck to cover the debt. The amount that can be withheld depends on the reason for the garnishment.

When this happens, the employee is informed of the decision so they know what is happening. If you need clarification as to why this is happening to you, then talk to the experts at Uncle Phil’s Tax Advice and they can look up the appropriate regulation or law and discuss it with you.
