What are the different types of garnishments?

Both private and government organizations can garnish an employee's wages to collect on a variety of unpaid debts. Examples of unpaid debts that can be collected through garnishments include:

  • Child Support
  • Federal Tax Levy
  • State Tax Levy
  • Creditor Garnishment
  • Spousal Support
  • Defaulted student loan

Federal and State tax agencies will levy employee wages for unpaid and outstanding tax debts, e.g., from a failure to file a return or correctly report income on a return.
