    Your wages can be garnished if you owe child support, alimony, student loans, or back taxes, or a court judgment has been entered against you. ... The creditor will continue to garnish your wages until you pay the debt in full or take some measure to stop the garnishment, such as claiming an exemption with the court.

    No.  IRS normally has 10 years from the date of the first bill to collect.  After that the statute of limitations expires.  There are a few things that will extend this:  filing bankruptcy, submitting an offer in compromise, requesting an Collection Due Process Hearing or living outside the USA for over six months.

    If the debt is not paid by then, yes.

    Till the "end of time?"  Is that something you expect to happen any time soon?

    LOL---no your wages can't be garnished until the Apocalypse. Only until you pay off your debt.

    No, only until the debt is fully repaid.

    Yes, if your debt is not fully repaid sooner.

    No. Your wages can only be garnished until you die. Then your liability is limited to EVERYTHING you owned at the time of your death.

    If you owe so much that it takes that long to pay it back - yes.
