    Producer Sean Garrett will be seeing much of his future earnings garnished by the IRS. His income will be paid straight to the tax office in order to settle his outstanding tax bill, which is over $730,000.

    Garrett, who has worked with superstars like Nicki Minaj, Beyoncé, Usher and more, owes the state of Georgia from the 2006 and 2007 tax years.

    TMZ reports that lawyers for the Georgia Department of Revenue filed papers requesting to garnish his wages from his royalty statements from BMI. So instead of collection royalties for sales, it'll go right to the IRS. That's tough.

    Moral of the story: Pay your taxes on time.

    Do you think this tax penalty is fair?
