In 2011, Congress lifted a 10-year statute of limitations on debts owed to the government, allowing them to pursue relatives who had nothing to do with the debt.

The measure also allows the government to collect from debtors’ children and grandchildren, according to Fox News…Now, “some 400,000 Americans may see their tax refund checks grabbed by the government,” Fox reported.
