In the state of MN. If you owe restitution on a case that is not federal/or child support, Can the state order all tax refunds to be garnished including federal? In my case I gave them my State Tax return and had kept my federal tax return and it went against my probation as a violation

Apparently so if your probation has been violated. Was turning over your tax refunds a condition of probation?

They were just court ordered so apperently. And she wrote it off as if kept both federal and state, which I didn't

So the Court ordered you to turn over both your State and Federal returns and you did not?

I don't know who "she" is, as in "she wrote it off -"

Considering I know that the court didn't get a judgement for the state court and submit the request to federal court system, I don't believe they can take my federal tax return

Sorry "she" Is my PO. And all that was written down from the judge is quote "All future tax returns/refunds will go to restitution. And that is all that is wrote on my Probation conditions

If the order says "All future tax returns/refunds will go to restitution" and that is not what happened, yes, you are in violation of your probation.

These are REALLY legal questions and are best answered in the LAW forum.

Then I trust you requested that it be moved.

I do understand why OP posted it on the tax forum, though.

Hi Im a first offender who got charged with 3rd degree assault/Felony. I was court ordered that all tax returns/refunds go to restitution. Can they do that with my federal Taxes considering its not a federal case/ or backed up child support alimony? :confused:

I don't know if they can do that... But your judge DID, and I wouldn't want to disobey him, even if he's wrong - cause it's YOUR a$$ going to be sitting in jail - not his.

I was a probation officer in Maryland for 7 years and court-ordered fees or other monies that were not collected otherwise (the person couldn't pay for one reason or another) were often turned over to a state agency known as the Central Collections Unit. These people-court order in hand-had the power to attach wages, tax refunds (state and federal) or other assets of the debtor.
