Can Creditor Take My Tax Refund
by: Mary

If the creditor has a judgment against you for the money that you owe, the creditor could get the court's permission to seize money from you bank account to pay the judgment and if your tax refund were in that account, then the creditor could end up with those funds. However, the creditor is not entitled to take your tax refund before it's deposited in your bank account.

I am not familiar with OH laws and I am not an attorney, so I do not know under what circumstances a creditor could garnish your wages and take money from your bank account at the same time, or if taking both actions concurrently would be allowed at all. Therefore, I suggest that you find out the answer by getting in touch with a consumer law attorney in your area who helps consumers resolve debt collection problems.

Good luck!
