If this is the IRS that has garnished your wages .
A administrative wage garnishment?
Administrative wage garnishment is a process by which federal agencies require a private sector employer to withhold up to 15% of an employee. s disposable pay to satisfy a delinquent debt owed to the federal government. A court order is not required. Before garnishing an employee's wages, federal agencies are required to send the employee a warning notice and to give the employee an opportunity to contest the debt and/or garnishment. All potential garnishees who wish to contest the action have the right to inspect and copy debt records, to enter into a repayment agreement, and to have a hearing.
If your refund amount goes into your account at any financial institution then the amount would be fair game for any garnishment because then it would NOT be your income tax refund amount but would be mingled with your other funds.
The United States Treasury Department Offset Refund Program through the Financial Management Service (FMS) a bureau of the United States Department of the Treasury to manage the collection of delinquent debt owed to the government.
