Your Tax Refund Can Be Offset By Debts

Posted on Wednesday, May 14, 2014

If you have unpaid obligations, such as overdue child support, state income tax, or student loans, part or all of your 2013 income tax refund may be redirected to pay the debt. The Treasury Department's Bureau of Fiscal Service runs the offset program, and it is this agency that will send you a notice if an offset occurs. The notice will list the original refund and offset amounts, plus the name and contact information of the agency that received the payment. For more details or assistance, contact our office.
