HOA and Garnishment

Paula:

Your pension and your disability income are exempt from garnishment. In other words, your HOA is not entitled to take that money. If it tries to get at that money by suing you, get in touch with a consumer law attorney in your area right away.

HOA and Tax Refund
by: Anonymous

Can HOA tax my Tax Refund? My only source of income is Social Security and retirement funds. I am behind in my HOA and have been carried to court plus they have already garnished my bank account last year and now I am afraid they will take my tax refund. I owe them $3,000 mostly attorney and court costs. I no longer have a bank account, but can they take my tax refund?

Generally tax refunds can only be offset for federal debts, but once that money is in your bank account it is possible they may try to seize it to satisfy the judgment. Have you talked with a consumer protection attorney to find out what your options are for resolving this?
