Answer Your income tax refund can be decreased by what is commonly called an offset.This can occur if you have outstanding federal or even some state debt(…s). .Having worked in tax preparation for many years I have seen offsets occur for various reasons. The most common reasons for a federal tax refund offset are child support arrearage,unpaid federal tax debt and outstanding student loan debt.What is important to note is that a third party known as Federal Management System(FMS) handles the offset,not the IRS.The IRS in most cases will not provide a reason or any information about the debt/offset and will refer directly to FMS.
Not normally. They can however file a non wage garn and get your taxes when you deposit them into your checking or savings account. Usually only, government and state can with…hold your taxes...i.e. back taxes, child support, student loans etc...
If you owe back taxes, or owe the social security, have a judgment aginest you the taxes can be garnished.
If its a refund, then there is nothing to be garnished. If you mean unpaid taxes...yes, the irs can and will garnish your wages. They can also wipe out your bank account witho…ut any notice to you. ans Garnishment is not the correct term, but I understand what you mean. The IRS and some other tax authorities can directly re-direct the refund for other debts you may owe them or certain Courts (child support specifically a common one too). Other creditors cannot attach or get the check directly. HOWEVER, as soon as it is deposited, it i no longer tax or governmental in any way, and it is fair game for anyone with a judgement/right to collect the debt.
No. All SS benefits are exempt by federal law from creditor attachment.
Can credit card companies that take you to civil court garnish your wages or income tax return if you lose in the lawsuit
Yes....but not your federal income taxes.
Yes, but there are ways to fight this. Find a veterans service organization in your area and talk to the veteran service officer. They should be able to get answers.
Yes, in the sense that the garnishment comes out of your net paycheck, i.e. after you have already had taxes withheld on the gross pay. It is just as if you received y…our full net pay before garnishment, then turned around and submitted the garnished amount to the garnishing agency.
I had a car that was financed through HSBC repossessed last year. It was repossessed. Can HSBC take my federal income tax refund for this repossession?
If this is about the income tax refund offset program through the FMS. You can use the below enclosed information and phone number. The Department of Treasury's Financial Ma…nagement Service (FMS), which issues IRS tax refunds, has been authorized by Congress to conduct the Treasury Offset Program. Through this program, your refund or overpayment may be reduced by FMS and offset to pay any past due child support, Federal agency non tax debts, or state income tax obligations. Go to the IRS gov website and use the search box for Topic 203 - Failure to Pay Child Support, Federal Non Tax and State Income Tax Obligations For additional information, FMS can be reached at 800-304-3107.
To ask? Yes. You might want to ask for a copy of either the automated underwriting findings or the loan's conditional approval. You can review these to ascertain if the loan t…ruly calls for tax transcripts in order for the loan to be approved. I say this because sometimes loan officers just reflexively ask for them.
Perhaps. State's enact laws that protect the consumer debtor's real and personal property. The concerned party should research the laws of his or her state relating to the gar…nishment of insurance and private retirement benefits for debts owed. Please note, all Social Security benefits are exempt from garnishment for creditor debt, also military benefits, government pension annuities and federal or state public assistance monies. The concerned party should also keep in mind that even if such funds are exempt from creditor attachment it is still possible for a creditor to execute a judgment against a bank account where exempt benefits and non exempt monies are comingled. It is always preferable to hold protected monies in totally separate accounts.
They can keep it all.
