Treasury: Vehicle Waiting for "Garnishment Day" on Nov. 1

Oct. 7, 2021

To promote health and safety through social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Michigan Department of Treasury will be practicing vehicle waiting for those filing writs of garnishment in early November.

Beginning at 7:30 a.m. on Monday, Nov. 1, Treasury staff members will be outside the Operations Building in Dimondale, Michigan, and registering individuals present to file writs of garnishment, including gathering names, garnishment types, number of garnishments, dollar amounts and phone numbers. When doors open at 8 a.m., individuals waiting in their vehicles will be contacted by phone to enter the building one-by-one to file their garnishments.

Individuals who arrive at the Operations Center prior to 7:30 a.m. will not be provided priority in the processing of their writ of garnishments. All customers who arrive to the Operations Center between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. will be serviced.

Individuals will be required to wear a mask to enter the building. If someone does not have a mask, the Michigan Department of Treasury will provide one.

Magnetic media will not be reviewed on Nov. 1. Magnetic media filers should complete the testing prior to Nov. 1 and may mail the media to the address listed below.

Treasury does offer the option of mailing in the writs of garnishment as well. Writs of garnishment to be filed on or after Nov. 1 for the upcoming tax year should not be received by Treasury prior to Nov. 1.

Individuals who wish to mail their garnishments, or provide magnetic media prior to Nov. 1, can send them to:

Michigan Department of Treasury - Third Party Withholding
P.O. Box 30785
Lansing, MI 48909
