Garnishment of wages is a legal process in which a court orders an employer to withhold a portion of an employee’s wages and remit them directly to a creditor or government agency. In the context of tax enforcement in Thailand, garnishment of wages may be used as a means to collect unpaid taxes from a non-compliant taxpayer.

If a taxpayer fails to pay taxes owed, the Thai Revenue Department may seek a court order to garnish the taxpayer’s wages. The court order will require the taxpayer’s employer to withhold a specified amount of the employee’s wages and remit them directly to the Thai Revenue Department to satisfy the tax debt.

Under Thai law, the amount that can be garnished from an employee’s wages is limited to a maximum of 50% of the employee’s disposable income. Disposable income is defined as the amount of income remaining after deductions for taxes, social security contributions, and other mandatory deductions.

It is important for individuals and companies operating in Thailand to comply with all tax laws and regulations to avoid penalties and other legal consequences, including garnishment of wages. It is recommended that taxpayers seek professional advice from qualified tax advisors or lawyers to ensure that they comply with all applicable tax laws and regulations in Thailand.
