You don't seem to know what you are talking about.

- The IRS does not garnish "all" of your pay. Slavery was abolished in the US in 1865.

- The first ~$100,000 of overseas earnings are usually tax exempt on the US side (to ensure you aren't taxed twice on the same earnings).

I suspect this is not the whole story, and the problem may be that whoever did his tax return did it wrong, treating foreign income as US income or something like that.

If he had income from his country that wasn't taxed there and then subject to a dual tax treaty, and was paid after he became tax resident in the US, then he would definitely need to pay taxes on that income. If he didn't, of course the IRS would come after him.

If the foreign income was paid before he became tax resident in the US, he should complete a dual status return that only includes his income after becoming tax resident. If the income was paid after he became tax resident in the US, but it was taxed by the foreign country, and there is a dual tax treaty, he should be able to claim that tax as a tax credit.

A basic misunderstanding of tax laws doesn't mean corrupt.

More detail needed.
