    If your tax return is garnished, that means somebody put a sprig of parsley on it.

    The tax RETURN is what you file with the IRS and the Illinois Department of Revenue. If you overpaid your taxes, you may get a REFUND.

    The IRS and the state tax departments are not in the business of collecting private debt. The only debts they will take your refund to pay are child support, back taxes, and student loans.

    Once the money is in your bank account, the person or company that won a judgment against you, may seize the account but only with a court order or through a city marshal. The typical method of collecting is usually by garnishing your pay.

    I hope this helps.

    Tax returns are filed at IRS information branch, tax returns are no longer garnished. yet Tax Refunds may be offset to new child help if IRS has orders from FMS to offset the refund. solid success

    But if you've cashed the refund check and your bank account is levied, they can get it.
