You need to get a copy that ALL TAXES have been paid from the IRS or if in Canada, Revenue Canada and take a copy of this document for the banking institution (but take in the original as well) to the banking institution and show them the proof. Sit there until they have completely absolved this mistake on your account.

Is a judgment removed by filing a chapter 7?

The judgment is not "removed" but the judgment creditor is barred by the discharge from collecting on the judgment. Filing a c. 7 will stay the collection, but if the case is dismissed before a discharge is granted, the judgment is enforceable. If the judgment involves intentional harm or drunk driving or certain other limited situations, the discharge does not prevent collection on the judgment.

If a collection agency freezes your bank account and on the next day you file for bankruptcy can they still freeze your money?

A collection agency, or any party, can only freeze your bank account IF they have sued your first and won a judgment against you. If you file for bankruptcy, it will not immediately release the levy on the account. The court that rendered the judgment must be notified of the bankruptcy filing, as well as the judgment creditor. The account could remain frozen until the outcome of your bankruptcy. If your bankruptcy, and the judgment debt is discharged, then the bank account must be released. It is possible to release a levy before discharge, but it will usually require the bankruptcy attorney to do it.

If a judgment has been issued for a repossession deficiency will it affect a 401K when cashed in and can they place a lien on your home which is homesteaded or take the money if it is sold?

A judgment creditor cannot levy on your 401(k), but they can levy on your bank account and money from a 401(k) distribution would be vulnerable if it was in your bank account at the time the levy occurred. Filing a homestead does not prohibit a judgment creditor from filing a lien against your home. The judgment creditor can wait for you to sell or refinance your home. If there is enough equity in your home to pay off the mortgage and your homestead, there might be enough equity to be able to force a sale of your home.

How do you remove a lien on your checking account?

Checking accounts are levied by means of a court ordered judgment. Most bank account levies are good for a period of thirty days and then must be renewed through the court. In some states the levy depending upon what it is for can remain on the account until the amount of the judgment has been collected. The holder of the account cannot have the levy removed without filing a petition with the court where the creditor received the judgment. For the levy to be suspended or ceased the judgment debtor/account holder must present evidence for "just cause". Such evidence might be that the funds in the account are not subject to seizure because they are of exempt status, such as Social Security or public assistance benefits.

Service of summons must be perfected for it to ever come to a default judgment against the defendant. I'm sure they are looking at other avenues to serve you - but, at this point, it sounds as if you have yet to be properly served. So, no default judgment (which would only come after you not filing an answer in time AFTER your summons)

Can a joint bank account between a mother and son be levied by a judgment creditor when only the son is the debtor?

Yes. Judgments can be executed against joint accounts with the exception of accounts held by a married couple as Tenancy By The Entirety when only one spouse is the debtor. The usual procedure is for the account to be frozen and the non debtor account holder filing a motion with the court to have the portion of funds belonging to them released. The best option if the debtor believes he or she may be sued, is to remove themselves from the account to avoid the joint holder being penalized. If the debtor has received a civil summons or a judgment has already been awarded, then no action can be taken in regards to the account to prevent attachment by the judgment creditor.
