    Hey so long story, but i am trying to see if anyone else has gone through this too. Background info. I filed for bankruptcy on 1/30/17. I found out on 2/1/2017 that my taxes had been offset due to old student loans. I spoke with the bankruptcy atty. She said that the offset violated the automatic stay that you are protected under while in bankruptcy.

    So i called the DOE and they said they would refund the money. They are going to send a check to my house. They estimated anywhere from 4-8 weeks. Maybe sooner. Has anyone gone through something similar? Could you please share your expierence with having the DOE return a tax refund?

    Thanks in advance. :)

    SIDENOTE: Before anyone responds I know that bankruptcies do not discharge student loans, and that I will still be responsible for the balance once the automatic stay is completed.

    That is interesting, I also had an offset. They took my whole refund for a school loan. I consolidate all my school loans. Alk it took was a call for the reimbursement? Which # did you contact at DOE because I keep getting the run-around about waiting for a letter from the IRS about an offset.
