Can an individual put a lien on another individuals income tax return?

Sacramento, CA |

I won a judgment and have a wage garnishment for $30 a month on the other persons bank account. This will take over 10 years to pay off. Can I garnish income tax return monies?

  1. You can go back to court and ask the court for an order that the tax refund be paid to you.
