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.
WMR offset notice after funds were to be deposited
My return was accepted 02/05 with a DD date of 02/20 for $1372. I checked WMR later and it said I had a tax obligation and my new refund is $1156. No deposit in my account yet. I checked WMR yesterday (02/21) and the Refund Sent tab was highlighted. Now, there is a msg saying I have an offset. Will my refund be the $1156 or will more be deducted? And when can I expect my direct deposit? Thanks in advance…
