Hello, I’m Scott from Turbo Tax with some important information about your tax refund.
Do you have an outstanding debt that’s past due and you’re concerned that a collection agency will take your federal tax refund because of it? Well, you’ll be happy to know that most collection agencies aren’t able to claim your tax refund directly from the IRS.
There are only four types of debt for which the federal government will withhold your tax refund or send it to one of your creditors. These debts include past-due federal taxes, state income taxes, child support payments and amounts you owe to other federal agencies, such as federal student loans you fail to pay.
As a result, the collection agencies that your other creditors hire to obtain payment from you cannot intercept or garnish your tax refund.
For example, if you’ve been unable to pay your monthly credit card bill and the company sends your account to a collection agency, there is no need to be concerned that they will garnish your tax refund.
However, you should be aware that— depending on the state you live in—these collection agencies have other ways of obtaining payment from you. State laws commonly allow collection agencies to garnish your employment wages or levy your bank accounts.
So, once your tax refund is deposited into your bank account, a collection agency may be able to take those funds. For example, if you request that your tax refund be direct deposited into your bank account and a collection agency is able to levy that account —all of your available funds are subject to the levy, even if it includes your tax refund.

Hola, soy Scott de Turbo Tax con información importante acerca de tu devolución de impuestos.¿Tienes una deuda pendiente que está vencida y estás preocupado por el hecho de que una agencia de cobro pueda tomar tu reembolso del impuesto federal a causa de ello? Bueno, te alegrará saber que la mayoría de las agencias de cobro no pueden reclamar tu devolución de impuestos directamente del IRS. Sólo hay cuatro tipos de deuda por las que el gobierno federal va a retener tu reembolso de impuestos o enviárselo a uno de tus acreedores. Estas deudas incluyen los impuestos federales vencidos, los impuestos estatales sobre la renta, pagos de manutención de menores y las cantidades que adeudes a otras agencias federales, tales como los préstamos federales para estudiantes que no has abonado. Como resultado, las agencias de cobro que tus otros acreedores contratan para conseguir que pagues, no pueden interceptar o embargar tu reembolso de impuestos. Por ejemplo, si has sido incapaz de pagar tu factura mensual de la tarjeta de crédito y la empresa envía tu cuenta a una agencia de cobro, no hay necesidad de que te preocupes por el hecho de que ésta pueda quedarse con tu devolución de impuestos. Sin embargo, debes tener en cuenta que, dependiendo del estado en el que vives, estas agencias de cobro pueden tener otras maneras para lograr obtener el dinero que debes. Las leyes estatales comúnmente permiten a las agencias de cobro embargar tu salario o tus cuentas bancarias. Por lo tanto, una vez que tu devolución de impuestos sea depositada en tu cuenta bancaria, una agencia de cobro puede ser capaz de tomar esos fondos. Por ejemplo, si solicitas que tu devolución de impuestos sea depositada directamente en tu cuenta bancaria y una agencia de cobros es capaz de embargarla, todos tus fondos disponibles están sujetos a ser retenidos, incluso los correspondientes a tu reembolso de impuestos.
