Can a Distress Warrant be issued for overpayment of unemployment?

1 Answers. 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: patrickjohnson@jsblaw.com; Cell: 615-646-9417; Office: 615-352-8326

Just because you owe money to another person, a bank, credit card company, landlord or another party doesn't mean you've signed away your legal rights. Federal and state debtor-creditor laws explain both the legal rights and obligations of debtors (people who owe money) and creditors (those who are owed money). If you're being hounded by collection agencies and debt collectors, talk to a debtor and creditor attorney who can help you enforce your legal rights while also working to explore debt relief options. Your lawyer can discuss the pros and cons of debt settlement, garnishment, personal bankruptcy and other possible solutions.
