What if my employer continues making garnishment payments?

The taxpayer's employer should return any amounts to the taxpayer that they are still holding. Any overpayments the Department receives will be refunded directly to the taxpayer. However, if the taxpayer has other debts with the Department, the IRS, or another State agency, the taxpayer's overpayment will be applied to those debts.
