Federal taxes can only be garnished for taxes owed for property or state , child support, and defaulted student loans. HOWEVER, a creditor can garnish your bank acct. The second the money hits it, they can withdrawl it and leave you dry
Yep most likely they will. (But I think it has to be a significant amount you owe.) I know banks, taxes, and even some car loan companies can request the court for your taxes be garnished also. Medical and nasic bad credit judgements like leases and such are not goin gto be given the right to garnish your taxes.

I still can not get a hold of anyone to pay so I dont overpay
They are only allowed to with drawl the money once when they get the court judgement for bank garnishment. So they wait for a large amount to be deposited....they are not allowed to come after any more money after that.
Im not sure how they know when to zap the acct....I just know they can and will. I think they must be able to tell the bank a certain amount and as soon as its deposited they withdrawl. You usually get the court judgement regarding it AFTER the fact.
