Can a Distress Warrant be issued for overpayment of unemployment?

Asked on Aug 14th, 2017 on Debtor and Creditor - Tennessee
More details to this question:
I received an overpayment in 2008. Income tax was garnished but I haven't received income tax for 2 years due to having too little taken out by employer. I received a letter thru email stating Tennessee was going to file for a Distress Warrant if I failed to pay. Why not a wage garnishment and what property can they take, if any?

I can not answer your question because you did not tell me who the letter was from. I have never heard of a Distress Warrant. Call the entity listed on the letter to find out if this is a legitimate letter or just a scam.

If you would like to contact me personally by either phone or email, you may do so as follows: Patrick Johnson, Johnson, Scruggs & Barfield, 95 White Bridge Road, S. 508, Nashville, Tennessee, 37205, email:; Cell: 615-646-9417; Office: 615-352-8326
