Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

Unfortunately, in FL, they could seize your accounts. As far as garnishing your pay, if you file your taxes as head of household, they cannot garnish your pay. If you are not head of household, they can legally garnish your pay for this type of deficiency debt.
