Debt Collection, Garnishment, Repossession

questions & answers

Question: Can they take my federal income tax money to satisfy the debt?

Answer: It depends on the type of debt.  Generally, a federal income tax refund can be garnished to pay a federal debt (i.e. federal taxes owed, a debt owed to a different federal agency, for federal student loans, etc) or for child support arrears.  Typically, creditors of private debts cannot collect directly from the IRS.
