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.

Anyone not have a tt 203 and no record on offset hotline and still got it taken away? Worried. I owe student loans but offset hotline says nothing and there is no TT on my WMR.February 10, 2014 at 2:01 pm #20032
Im in the same boat, my transcripts has code 846 as well with no offset code as well, I called the department of education and was informed my debt had been paid off by them and I was referred to Progressive Finicial services. They don’t have any idea about my offset, I have ddd 2/12. I think it’s the machines I just hope everyone on here get their refunds. I pray I do, I need mines badFebruary 10, 2014 at 12:03 pm #19997
Same situation…transcript has code 846 full refund amount issued, wmr has full refund amount with ddd by 2/12 and has tax topic 203. Offset line says full refund amount will be applied to debt. Can anyone offer any info? ThxFebruary 10, 2014 at 9:02 am #19975
Hello! Curious, I am in the same situation. I have a dd for 2/12 but the top says they offset my refund and to contact Dept Of Educ…however on wmr I still have dd for Amt they yield me I would get…when you revived your refund, did top still say that it was offset?February 9, 2014 at 10:02 am #19794
Hi! I am dealing with a similar situation as well. I have a DDD of 2/12 but with the standard offset language at the bottom. WMR is still stating that I will be getting my full refund deposited on 2/12 but when I call the offset phone # it states that I have an offset with the State of NJ and it is the full amount of my refund that they are taking. I am current with my student loans and pay on time every month. I have never received anything from the State of NJ, or TOP (from what I am reading Treasury Offset Program) who is supposed to let the debtor know that this is going to occur. It is just such a let down to me because I had no idea that this would or could happen. I have had student loans since 2006 and ever year I have filed taxes and have never had my refund taken to pay down the student loan. Any advise would be really appreciated. Should i not anticipate any refund or should I hope for the best that the “may” wording in the offset language is to my favor. Thank you in advance!February 8, 2014 at 4:32 pm #19768
I’m in the same situation. Just found out about an offset today. Had no idea I had one and it’s not on my transcripts but say so over the phone?! I will still get most of it back but I’m really wondering will I get it all or not. DD 2/12. Just got that today.February 8, 2014 at 4:15 pm #19767
Maybe its compensation for all weve Been throughFebruary 8, 2014 at 2:30 pm #19763
I have the same question!?! As far as I knew my entire refund was supposed to be offset, but from all the information I have gathered today the IRS deposited the whole thing into my checking account. It’s been two days since and they haven’t taken it back, but I don’t want them to put my account in the hole because they yank it ou or something after I’ve already used some??? Though other than the WMR site, everything else says it ‘may’ be taken, nothing official on any amounts or anything…??February 8, 2014 at 1:46 pm #19761
Im in the same boat just found out I have an offset, shows on transcripts but did not say I have one on the hotline. I wish this wasn’t true but seems like my situation is opposite of you guys :( One question, for those who still received their refund, did it show the offset code on your transcripts?February 8, 2014 at 1:27 pm #19760
Aloha! I tell you this year is nothing but confusing.February 8, 2014 at 10:29 am #19746
Aloha! Same thing with me.February 8, 2014 at 10:27 am #19744
Mine as well except under the refund code I have no offset code this year.
But hotline and tax top says I doFebruary 8, 2014 at 9:42 am #19740
This is happening to me too…..846 says entire refund issued but offset line says it was taken??February 7, 2014 at 9:44 pm #19687
I really wish someone had answers!! Going thru the same thing right now!!February 7, 2014 at 7:50 pm #19679
I’m wondering if this will happen to us as well? Transcripts gave husband and I code 846 with full refund issued BUT WMR has a Tax Topic 203 and offset line says we are being offset for xxxx.xx$….DDD 2/11…February 7, 2014 at 5:49 pm #19658
What should we do?February 7, 2014 at 4:44 pm #19652
What the @#$%!
We were also supposed to have an offset but got the entire thing. We’ve called offset on past Tues and it said “amount of $$$$$ from your refund has been applied to your offset” and we called again today and offset is gone. They can’t take it back once it’s actually in your bank but we won’t get in trouble will we? This is WEIRD!
