A debt collector can NEVER seize taxes. Only a city, state or federal agency can file a lien.

But they do now have collection agencies who are hired to collect on government debt and child support who can go through the legal process of taking what you owe from your tax refund.

Correct. But the CA's cannot file a lien nor do they receive the proceeds directly from the IRS. It all has to be handled by the government agency.

Is the Army Military Store card considered gov't agency and can they take your refund for past debt.

Yes, if you're talking abbout AAFES and the Military Star Card, they can take any monies coming to you paided from federal funds, such as tax refunds, military pay, military retirement pay, federal employee pay.?? They usually send you a notice ahead of time, at least for taking it from any pay, and execute the federal offset within 45 days of your notice.?? They only take 15 percent of your pay each check.?? Hope this helps.
