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.
Offset After Divorce
I just finally got an update on my tax refund on the transcript. It says that a majority is being transferred out with a 826 code. I also didn’t receive my state refund, and that just says for a debt, but not sure what yet. The only debt I can possibly think of that they would have taken that much money for is for money that was owed back in taxes when I was married still. He had a car repossessed, and then made a deal with them to only have to pay a portion of it back. The money he didn’t have to pay back was counted as income, and they said we owed almost 4,000 in taxes. When we got divorced last year, a part of the agreement was that he would pay that amount. He had called and told them that it was his debt to pay, and had made arrangements to pay on it monthly. Is there anything that I can do to get that amount back after they have taken it?
