Event Description



If Not Handled Correctly, Tax Levies and Creditor Garnishments Can Lead to Heavy Financial and Emotional Costs. Learn How to handle it in the Right Way.

Tax levies and creditor garnishments can be some of the most complex tasks required of any payroll department. If garnishments are not handled correctly, you may find yourself facing situations that become extremely costly both financially and emotionally - Courts, federal and state regulations, bureaucracies, lawyers and a multitude of other factors can complicate even the most basic procedures. Add in the emotional turmoil that often accompanies garnishment orders and even small errors can become major disasters.

The reality is that all of the people and entities involved in these situations expect action from the payroll department.  And it is up to the payroll department to catch and correct any errors that have been made by anyone along the way. Precise and accurate compliance with garnishment regulation can help to reduce or eliminate the emotional and financial toll that can result from these unfortunate situations.
