Brian, were you the co-signor on the loan??? Otherwise, NO. How could you be responsible for someone else's debt? YOU would have to sign the loan. Sounds like a collector trying to smoke ya...

my son is getting his wages garnished for child support and now they are taking all of his federal income tax, is that legal?

If your son in behind on his child support payments many states have very aggressive laws for collecting past due support. My wages began getting garnished for support last year and I had never missed a payment in 12 years prior. Then a few months ago my employer had a mix up in the accounting department and they didn't release my wages for child support. By the end of the following month I had a letter from the state telling me my tax return would be garnished for the past due support. Fortunately my employer corrected the problem and paid the past due support and interest immediately, and the state quickly sent another letter saying they would no longer make the tax return garnishment.
