I am tweening the red box on top of blue box. It works fine unless I scroll the page a little bit, in that case it breaks.

You need to find the scroll offset.

Blake is right (as usual) - this isn't related to GSAP, it's just that you were using the browser's getBoundingClientRect() method which DOES NOT factor in the scroll position (it's just the viewport).
