Not if you have left the unit. Federal law prohibits government subsidies from being used to pay a past debt. However, if you have other income, a judge could conclude that th…at income can be garnished to pay the debt.
Answer No. Wage garnishment applies to "disposable income" which is the amount that is left after all deductions have been made.
Answer Most likely yes. Here's how it works. If someone owes taxes and moves out of state, the state they now reside in will usually garnish th…e persons wages for the other state in the hope they will do it for them too if the need arises. * Not without the State of California filing a civil suit in the Florida's Superior Court in the county where the person resides. This applies to state arrearages only and not IRS action.
Wages can be garnished for unpaid taxes through various methods such as your current employer. The best way to find out if you are facing a garnishment is through the IRS …or your payroll department.
No they cannot. They are one of 14 States that cannot levy for State taxes. Federal, yes.
You will have to pay federal taxes on your Social Security benefits if you file a federaltax return as an individual and your total income is more than $25,000. If you file a …joint return, you will have to pay taxes if you and your spouse have a total income of more than $32,000.
No. SSI and other Social Security or public assistance benefits can only be garnished if the matter relates to child support or tax arrearages. There has, however, been an… issue with governmental agencies accessing people's bank accounts. This has been a problem for those with automatic deposit of their SSI checks.
Supplemental security income (SSI) is different from Social Security benefits and is not reported on federal tax returns. See Sources and related links for more information.
The government has just garnished my 2008 federal tax return due to my student loan being defaulted. My student loan dates back to 2005. It was very inconvenient to have… my return garnished, especially since I would have received $6,500, but I am also glad I had this resolved!
No - SSI is a form of public assistance.
An IRS refund can be seized for child support arrearages and/or tax arrearages. And in some cases for repayment of federally funded student loans.
Probably not, unless it has to do with child support. Basically, only support payments and debts due to Governments can get to directly intercept refunds. Of c…ourse, the moment you receive the refund it loses it's identity and any protection.
Yes, the Dept. of Ed. allows collection companies to garnish up to 15% of SSI benefits for Default Federal student loans. There are only 2 ways to get out of default on your… Federally Guaranteed student loans. Contact your collection company or student loan servicer and request to enter the rehabilitation program. Most people qualify, but I have seen some refused when the default is over 10 years old. In the rehabilitation program, you will need to make 9-12 on-time payments in addition to your garnishment. After the 9-12 on-time payments, they should stop the garnishment, but you will stay in a default status until your Rehabed loans are sold to a new lender. In the past, that was an easy process, but in these turbulent financial times, other lenders are not buying rehabed loans. So, with this option your loans will stay in a Default status for the forseeable future.The second way you can get out of default and have your garnishment lifted is to consolidate your loans. These days very few Federal lenders will consolidate defaulted loans and your lender will probably not release the loan for consolidation while in a garnishment stage. The good news is, there are a few companies out there that will help you get a garnishment lifted and find a Federal lender to consolidate the loans. One good example is Default Management Services, Inc. They are the cheapest I have seen and give a 100% money back guarantee on their services. You can Google the company name to get the phone #. Ask for Doug.
Yes they can an will
Yes, but the FTB would need to go through a judicial process designed to gain the target state's bank. If it were a bank in, say Nevada, and it was a Nevada corporate account,… that would take quite a while for the FTB if they could do it at all. Added: If the bank in question was a branch of a bank operating in CA the court could serve the lien papers on the bank's registered agent in the state of California.
