If an individual owes money to the federal government because of a delinquent debt, the Treasury Department can offset that individual’s federal payment or withhold the entire amount to satisfy the debt.
Last week I received a letter saying we made an error on our 2013 taxes and now owe $1279. It gave us until March 25th respond. We filed on 2/27 and it was accepted 10 minutes later and showed up as processing on WMR Saturday morning. My question is will our refund be delayed by this or will they take it oit of the return with no delay? I am wondering if the refund will be delayed until the response day of 3/25. Any advice or insight would be appreciated.
