Response . Depends on which adorn his salary to begin with. If it was the taxing authority, your state Department. of Taxes, or the IRS, yes the garnishment will include your tax refund, if the Agent is dealing with knows what they are doing. Only the government or a judicial court can take a tax refund away from you.. Ans .If it is a wage garnishment by any authority it will not effect the tax refund.. That does not mean that the tax authorities not to take the refund...(in reality, long before they even bother coming after wages). But in virtue of a process/law I think that is normally called claim of right or offset, not the wage garnishment. Wage garnishment is directed to a specific employer and the payroll.
