Question: Refund Tax Offset Questions?
Ok, here is what’s going on….my husband has some military debt-a big debt and I am wondering if his tax refund will be offset? He got the bill last year-2009. He didn’t get any letter saying that it would be offset and he filed just a couple weeks ago and when he checked the IRS website on Where’s My Refund? the only tax topic it brings up is tax topic 152. I don’t know if that makes any diff. on knowing weather or not he will get his refund back. He also almost immediately got his full state taxes back and I don’t know if that makes any diff. either. He is afraid to call the FMS hotline to find out weather it will be offset or not b/c he is afraid it will raise red flags and possibly make things worse if it wasn’t going to be offset at all. Does calling that number make anything worse? Please read whole question and give any advice you can. Thanks.
Answer: I have called everyday since the 16th to check on mine. I am in default on a student loan and i too was wondering if they would take it away. i filed at h r block and i have call the irs and the top 1800 304 3107 and both say i dont have any flags on my ssn. and i still dont. With that being said i do believe that if you owe taxes they may catch that when u call cause that is something that affects them .they look more closely to c if u do.( cause they would get the money) But i dont think they can find something that hasnt been set to offset, what would they do call every debors number in the world to see if u owe them money. and futher more why would they care if they didnt sent in for a offset. I hope this makes sense. Call them it will help.. good luck i hope you get your refund
