    They will not be able to physically stop your tax return from entering your mailbox.  However, depending on who owns/runs your electric company information may be shared with certain cities or government.  Additionally, if the account has moved to collections and a legal battle ensues further issues would possibly arise.

    Only the government can intercept your tax refund. However, if the electric company or its collection agency sues you, they can get a bank garnishment order and garnish the funds from your tax refund directly from your bank account after you've cashed it.
