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.
Refund Sent- offset still possible?
I was expecting all or some of our refund to be offset for my husband’s student loan debt. When I look at the IRS Wheresmyrefund page it says that my refund was approved and sent yesterday. Does that mean they will NOT be offsetting, or do the offsets happen after the refund has been “sent?” Not sure what to expect.
