Not Unless It Was Court Ordered. Child Support & Student Loans Can Be.

ANSWER: If a garnishment order is sent by the courts to garnish your wages your employer will most likely comply with the order. If some nut bag creditor tries to garnish your federal taxes it is unlikely the IRS will comply. As far as the IRS is concerned is that is their money and they intend to keep it.
