Can my federal refund be seized by the state of California court system?:confused:




Federal tax refunds can be seized due to certain circumstances. Federal tax refunds can be seized by the IRS in order to recover delinquent taxes. Federal as well as state tax refunds can be seized by a state child enforcement agency in case of court ordered child support dues.

However, tax refunds cannot be seized for creditor debt such as non payment of a credit card account. But, once the refund is placed in a bank account, then the creditor can garnish that account after he or she receives a judgment. The Federal Government can also offset your federal tax refund to pay a student loan debt.
