    I’ve got a question for anyone that might know or maybe could help me.. I called the BFS a few weeks ago while waiting for my Injured Spouse claim to be worked and it says, “You currently have 1 offset in the amount of $0000.00, for more information of this debt please contact the BOE.” When I called this morning it said, “You currently have 1…[Read more]

    Filed taxes 1/25 accepted 1/26. My husband owes for back child support. Called top today and they updated with an offset amount and date which.is more than half of our original refund amount. I claimed both children on my portion so Im guessing they applied one of the 2 children to his half to satisfy the amount. Kinda pissed about it lol.

    • Refund amount is 8001 and back support amount 8000. The amount they applied to offset is 4304. With EIC for 2 kids and ctc. I claimed both children on my half.

    Tax advocate called this morning. Refund will be offset wends. Offset for 600.00 unemployment tax debt. Refund is 7000 will they take all 7,000 or just 600.00? Tax advocate didn’t know much about what to do or if it would all be taken. She said to call BFS Thursday. Another question is will it still be able to DD or check?

    • They will only take the amount of the offset.
      If you set it up for DD then that’s how you will get it.
      If not, then it will be a mailed check.

    Does anyone have any idea of how long it takes to receive your refund after some has been applied to offset?

  • Angel posted an update in the group Tax Refund Offsets 7 months, 3 weeks ago

    I am new to offsets and the form 8379 which I had to file this year (my first year) when filing jointly with my husband. We did our taxes through H & R Block, which is my first year not doing them through TurboTax… But, I wanted to be sure the 8379 form was done correctly. My husband owes an substantial amount of back child support in FL and…[Read more]

    • The first year we filed IS we also did it after the $ had been applied to past debt and it only took 4 or 5 weeks

    does anyone know how to speak to a person at the bfs? i spoke with a lady at the irs and she told me there was a glitch. my refund was offset but the bfs number i called said i had no debts. does anyone have any information about this or a way to speak with an actual person at the bfs?

    • Hello, something similar happened to me, only a small portion was deposited into my account, and on WMR it says possible offset, but TOP says no offset and when I spoke with the IRS they show no debt interception or offset. Can any offer an help as to what might be going on? And IRS said it would not be clears off TOP that quick

  • Yes, I have defaulted student loans. We filed injured spouse (mfj) and TOP wasn’t showing any offsets. Got my deposit today in the full amount!

  • If the TOP and WMR aren’t showing any offset…yes, you will get your refund on your scheduled DDD. :)


  • Sonya posted an update in the group Tax Refund Offsets 8 months ago

    @NCMom2 I called IRS yesterday and they have nothing showing that I owe, I called the TOP today and still nothing showing for my SS#. My DD is set for tomorrow. I am praying and keeping faith that I will get my refund without an offset!!

    • @Sonya prayers to you that the DD is the full amount tomorrow as well! So wishing mine were DD and I didn’t have to wait for a check to arrive!! UGH….way to stretch out the anxiety!

    • Well I got offset!! I figured I would! At least the debt is paid now and I still got a little money!

    • Hate that for you! I am still anxiously awaiting an update on mine. Still says no offset on the 800 number…and I can’t figure our why WMR shows MORE than my tax paperwork did….

  • I have a DDD of 2/22. The wmr app says it should be sent to my bank ie the emerald card BY 2/22. Has anyone receive their money the day before??

  • My WMR is also showing as refund approved, check to be mailed by 2/26/18 (my account was hacked and i didn’t do the DD :( )
    I have a tax topic 203, TOP does not have any debts listed for my social.
    My WMR is actually showing a refund amount of $28 MORE than what I had on my tax return….
    I have had my return offset in the past, last year when I…[Read more]

    When I check my WMR the status says that the refund will be deposited on the 22nd below is the tax topic 203 about an offset— I called the BFS and it says that I do not have an offset?? What does this mean? I don’t pay child support I don’t owe student loans and I don’t owe any taxes, I barely worked this past year so my refund is WAY lower t…[Read more]

  • Jenny posted an update in the group Tax Refund Offsets 8 months ago

    My WMR says still being processed with topic 152 but when i called the offset line it says I have an offset for unemployment over payment. My question is how long could this offset delay my refund? Is there any way they wouldn’t deduct the offset?

  • Alecia posted an update in the group Tax Refund Offsets 8 months ago

    I have defaulted student loans. I file mfj with IS forms with my husband. WMR shows a DDD of 2/22 and it shows the whole amount. I’ve called the offset line and it says I have a debt but the only offset listed is the payment they took last year. I don’t work so the only income filed was my husbands.

  • @tina they already paid it so it says no debt owed

  • Heaven posted an update in the group Tax Refund Offsets 8 months ago

    I update last night to tax topic 203. I know that I have an offset but when I contacted the agency to settle my debt they told me if I filed before March they would not take my refund. Has this happened to anyone before? Can I get my refund back?

    • I was wondering the same thing? We have an offset, but it states that the full amount of refund has been sent to my bank. Do you mind if I ask what agency? I still haven’t been credited my refund. If the refund has been sent to bank then , they are not taking it or are they holing it?

  • Miriam replied to the topic Child Support Offset in the forum Tax Refund Offset 8 months ago

    By law they have to hold it for 6 months in case an injured spouse claim form is filed but i don’t see how that is possible since you said he’s single. They must’ve been holding it cause he filed with someone else.

  • lindsayn posted an update in the group H&R Block 8 months, 1 week ago

    I filed on 02/05 and got fees taken out and direct deposit, anyone the same? Also – I do know from last year that Bofl is the bank that HRBLOCK uses. If that helps! Please if anyone has updates please post if you are same! Thanks

    • Hi, I filed the same way. I filed on 1/21 accepted on 1/22, yes they us BOFI for their banking. Unfortuantly i had the fee’s taken out, which if I wouldn’t have I would have my money already, because I have a netspend card.

    • Yes I just got a DDD of 2/22 with fees taken out and use meta bank/green dot bank! No money as of yet!

    • I have a netspend card as well and my drop is supposed to be the 28th. My friend has gotten her taxes done through a free walk in service and always gets hers deposited on her netspend card 3 days early. So I’m wondering how this works now with netspend and how to find out if my deposit is pending.
