    Answered . Only a government creditor can attach your IRS tax refund before it hits your bank account. But once the money goes into your account, it becomes fair game for the creditor to take, so beware! Hope this perspective helps!

    Answered . No, they can't garnish/attach your IRS refund for a private foreclosure deficiency. Good luck.
