My husband has a loan for almost $9,000. he received court order letter for his check to be garnished, 15% of it. my question is if they garnish his check and he is paying it slowly, will they still take his income tax when he files for the loan even though he is paying? because i know when you don't pay at all they take your income taxes.Answer Question

If you rectify the loan they will stop your spouse's check garnishment and stop taking your income tax refund. Right now, they will most likely still take your income tax return due to failure to comply to the terms of the loan.
If his check is being garnished and your tax refund being taken, it is because you have failed to WILLING pay for the student loans. Keeping your student loans current is paramount if you want to not have wage garnishment and it also affects your credit rating.
