I am being sued for back business personal property taxes. Can they freeze my bank accounts?

I have since moved to a new location. Here I only rent one bay and only own some hand tools.

  1. If they get a judgment then Texas authorizes the garnishment of bank accounts to collect on the judgment

  2. They can only do this if they win the lawsuit and get a judgment but you should consider fighting it and working out a payment plan. The amount of the claim can double in just a few years and a small balance could mushroom into a big problem. Also, it sounds like you are still in business. With a judgment, creditors can interfere with your business and cause problems. Also you will likely not be able to obtain any future business loans if a judgment is out there. You should try to prevent a judgment if at all possible.
