If the judgment is for state or federal taxes then any refund is subject to seizure by the agency holding the judgment. If it is a creditor judgment, a tax refund would only be subject to attachment if it were placed in a bank account that was being levied by the judgment creditor. I would consult with a tax attorney.
You will receive a judgment from the creditor a year before they intercept only your state income tax. The judgment will say income tax intercept on it. A federal agency can intercept your federal taxes also.
A creditor cannot seize a federal tax refund, but the creditor can file a lawsuit and if they are awarded a judgment they can levy the bank account in which a tax refund is deposited.

A judgment creditor can levy a bank account even if it is joint. A judgment creditor can only garnish income if there is no other way to recover monies owed. A judgment creditor can place a lien against real property but cannot perfect the lien as a forced sale of a primary residence. A judgment creditor cannot seize a tax refund.
No if it is for creditor debt. Yes if it is for child support or tax arrearages.
No, when filing for the state income taxes, you will receive your federal income tax refund as well as your state income tax refund.
A creditor can put a lien on federal income tax refunds and usually will when the debt is that of a student loan or child support. Other creditors can if the right paperwork is filed within a specified time frame to the IRS.
In the U.S., your federal income tax refund does not count as taxable income for the next year. If you receive a refund from your state, and you itemized your deductions on the federal return, then the state refund will count as income on your federal return. (If you didn't itemize, then your state refund won't count as income.)
Yes. State refund must be claimed as income on your federal return.
A judgment creditor cannot seize a refund, that action is only available to the IRS, state tax agencies or state child support enforcement agency. The judgment creditor would need to levy the debtor's bank account, garnish income or enforce the judgment by other means allowed by the laws of the debtor's state.
No. The judgment creditor can, however, execute the judgment as a wage garnishment or bank account levy or any other methods allowed under the laws of the state.
If I remember right, you can. * No. Only government agencies can seize federal or state tax refunds for matters such as tax or child support arrearages. A creditor or lender would need to execute a judgment against the debtor's bank account if the state laws where the account is held allows the action.
