Hi, to all I just have a question. Anyone who thinks they have an idea, fell free to answer. My wages are and have been garnished since 2009 now. For failure to pay my student loans............completely my fault I'm not making excuses. Hindsite is 20/20 is all I have to say. 2009, 2010, 2011, and 2012 I have been garnished over 5,000 each year...........and each year, I file and I get my tax refund (cross my fingers this year) My question is can I and should I have been claiming the money garnished on my taxes?
By signing up a debt counseling session, your provided details (Name, Email ID and Phone No.) will be forwarded to the company advertising on the DebtCC. However, you have no obligation to use their services.
Some creditors and collection agencies refuse to lower the payoff amount, interest rate, and fees owed by the consumer.
Creditors/collection agencies can make collection calls and file lawsuits against the consumers represented by the debt relief companies.
Debt relief services may have a negative impact on the consumer's creditworthiness and his overall debt amount may increase due to the accumulation of extra fees.
The amount which the consumer saves with the use of debt relief services can be regarded as taxable income.
