  13. Thanks. I have often wondered "a what if" in regard to the IRS and my SSD and Vet benefits. I paper file my 1040 every year return receipt green card and keep a copy for the past three years. Some body told me you should always keep your prior last three years Fed and State income taxes so I do. Finally glad i got my student loan discharged.
  14. QUICK QUESTION HERE: I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW DOES THE US INTERNAL REVENUE SERVICE HAVE THE LEGAL POWER, RIGHT AND ABILITY TO SEIZE A VETERANS MONTHLY CASH DISABILITY COMP IF HE OWES UNPAID FEDERAL TAXES CAN THE IRS ISSUE A "levy" AND THEN GARNISH RIGHT OUT OF THE VETS SAVINGS OR CHECK DEBIT ACCOUNT????????? I THOUGHT THE LAW SAID SOMETHING LIKE VETERANS CASH BENEFITS ARE NOT ATTACHABLE BY ANY COURT I THINK FOR CHILD SUPPORT THEY CAN STATE FEDERAL OR LOCAL JUST SOMETHING I WOULD LIKE TO KEEP IN THE BACK OF MY MIND AS FAR AS THE IRS IS CONCERNED THANKS FOR YOUR HE
