    Federal Student Loans = Yes.
    Likely, no. Since they are getting money out of garnishing your wages.

    By “take my federal income taxes” you mean your refund, if you overpaid your taxes, right? If so, then they can and will seize your tax refund.

    I hope this helps.

    They can and they will.
    They are most interested in available cash that would otherwise be paid to you, rather than
    garnish wages only as they are earned.

    Yes, up to the amount you still owe – and they almost surely will.

    gov’t sponsored student loans in default are offset by federal refunds
    if your wages are being garnished this is likely a loan not gov’t sponsored
