What property can a judgment creditor attach if you do not own real property or vehicles and the only money in your checking account is from regular wages?

They can garnish your wages. Texas only allows a judgment creditor to garnish wages if the creditor has no other options available to execute the judgment. A judgment creditor can levy a bank account including a joint account or a joint marital account. Regular earned income (wages) deposited into a bank account are NOT exempt from creditor seizure. The creditor may also seize and liquidate any non exempt assets belonging to the debtor (bonds, stocks, jewelry, livestock, a specified amount of tools of trade, in some cases household furnishings, etc). Texas is a community property state, therefore, it might be possible for the judgment creditor to seize joint marital property even if only one spouse is the debtor. Some income, however, cannot be attached by creditors or persons who prevail in a lawsuit. For example, disability income, Social Security income and military retirement income cannot be garnished or attached by a creditor.

Can creditors take your federal income tax refund?

Tax refunds can only be seized for tax arrearages and/or child support arrearages, they are not subject to attachment by a judgment creditor. Obviously if the refund is deposited in the debtor's bank account a judgment creditor can levy that account and seize any and/or all funds necessary to pay the judgment. The exception is monies that can be proven to belong to a joint account holder who is not the debtor, and monies considered exempt, such as SS, SSI, SSD. However, each state has a minimum exempt amount for bank accounts that cannot be seized by creditors. But you have to go to court and ask to protect it. It's not tiny, either. In Virginia, for example, the first $5,000 in the bank can be exempted from seizure by a creditor. Maryland exempts $6,000. This is not a bankruptcy exemption, it's a general exemption from attachment by a judgment creditor.
