Till debt collection

3 posts in this topic

What case law or area of law on debt collection explains the different types of debt collection, especially the ones that let the creditor take from the till of the debtor's business cash register upon immediate receipt of any cash and the creditor take the debtor's property in lieu of payment on debt, especially in the state of Tennessee? what is the law on garnishment of wages, especially in Tennessee?

I don't understand the question.  The first part of the disjunctive asks about "case law [that] explains the different types of debt collection."  Are you asking folks to cite cases?  If so, that's not going to happen on a message board.  You'll need to hire an attorney to do case research.  The second part of the disjunctive asks about the "area of law on debt collection [that] explains the different types of debt collection."  Not really sure what this mean.  "Debt collection" certainly is an "area of law."

If you're asking for the specific law that authorizes a till tap as a means to collect a civil money judgment, I could not find anything with a quick google search.  Any Tennessee lawyer who handles debt collection law should be able to find it quite easily or probably will know it off the top of his/her head.

As PG1067 notes, that's called a "till tap" which is similar to a levy on accounts receivable. A till tap is a rather common method of judgment enforcement against someone who owns a retail business and doesn't have wages to garnish.

 

That a judge ordered it to happen is all you need to know about it.

 

However, the statute that covers methods of judgment enforcement (while not specifically using the words "till tap") is Title 26 - Execution:

It starts with

 

Quote

26-1-101 If a judgment or decree be that the party recover or be put in possession of the specific property, real or personal, the court may carry the same into effect by writ of possession or other process sufficient for the purpose.

 

Personal property includes money.

 

Everything else in the statute is the "how to" of getting to it.
