Can a collection agency garnish my tax return?



Sub: Can a collection agency garnish my tax return?
Sun, 22/02/2009 00:13

Love, Beal, & Nixon sent me a letter stating that if I was getting a tax return to contact them. I spoke with Judy Greer from their office and she said that I was served papers on May 24, 2006. I sent them a letter disputing the debt on June 6, 2006 and never received anything validating it. Then all of a sudden I receive this letter stating that judgement had been made on this account from Worldwide Asset Purchasing and that I owed in excess of 8,000. Now they are talking income tax garnishment. Can they do that?

Guest, you should contact the clerk of the court and notify them that you were never served properly. They will have to vacate the judgement against you.

I just received a letter stating that judgment was past against me. I didn't receive a summons myself, my mother received at an address that I have not lived at for over four years. We are not on very good speaking terms and by the time I received the summons, it was to late to take off of work and make it to court. I work part time and support my 7 month old daughter. I am the only one keeping clothes on her back and food in her mouth. I cannot afford to have garnishment passed. Dont they have to see if you can provide for youself and family? I mean, the only reason I stopped paying on the car was due to the fact the vin number didn't match the car on the paper work. And I had never seen a title to the car. I asked the bank to see it and they said I was nuts and that I had the title when it states in the paper work they held the title until paid in full. Also, I thought the banks had to sell a car when they took them? They never sold the car and are suing me for the full amount. I dont know what to do?

I guess no nonsense troll hasn't responded. What an idiot. It's like he actually thinks people here give a crap about what he has to say. Maybe if he had something thats not insulting like actually making a point then someone might, *might* respond, but he's made such a ass out of himself I doubt people will now.

Actually I was trying to determine if a judgment had been issued and if he had the opportunity to represent him/herself in court as due process dictates.

Sub: #10 Bank garnishmentSat, 02/09/2008 - 12:16



We live in South Dakota. Have been dealing with a collection agency here for a year now. Have been making small payments towards our account. Was served papers for a tax disbursement summons. Yeasterday this collection agency cleaned out my bank account. Leaving me with nothing! Wasn't the bank supposed to let me know about this before it was garnished? I just don't think that this was legal. Any advie is very much appreciated.
