Can a collection agency garnish 100% of my wages?

Aldie, VA |
Filed under: Bankruptcy

My employer received a letter from Nationwide Credit Corporation stating they need to withhold 100% of my pay for 2006 Fairfax County Personal Property Tax. They were just sent a letter, no judgement was ever done. No my employer is saying they are not going to pay me until this is resolved. This will cause my daughter and I not to be able to pay our rent and leave us without a home.
