I had an offset. How can I tell if they took the whole refund? This is the message on WMR:
Your tax refund is scheduled to be issued on February 13, 2013. If you do not receive the refund by February 18, 2013, please contact us again. We are unable to take any action until then.
Does that mean I am going to get part of my refund? I called the offset line and it does not tell me how much has been applied or if all of it has been applied. How will I know?
ThanksFebruary 9, 2013 at 12:27 pm #6178
It should be okay mine said the same thing I had an offset and my date was Feb 7. I recieved my refund on that date minus the money that I owed to the offset. Hope that helps.February 9, 2013 at 12:32 pm #6180
I also had an offset. They FINALLY approved my taxes this morning. Gave me a dd of 2/13. It did however at the bottom state how much I was getting dd. The offset was taken out. Didn’t it give you an amount for your deposit? If it gave you less… then they took it off the top.February 9, 2013 at 1:11 pm #6189

Do they always take the whole amount you owe?February 9, 2013 at 4:09 pm #6216
I’m so angry right now. I FINALLY got a ddd of 2/13 this morning (filed 1/29; accepted 1/29), however when I checked WMR, my refund was reduced due to an offset. I had an offset last year that took my entire refund, and I still owed $200ish afterwards which the IRS quickly garnished my wages for (the full amount). I DON’T OWE THEM ANY MORE MONEY! What is wrong with these bafoons?
What do I do? HELP!February 9, 2013 at 4:11 pm #6217
BTW. . .I never got a letter and the offset line has NEVER said I had any debts. I’m really irritated. Has this ever happened to anyone else?February 9, 2013 at 4:59 pm #6227
@mrscallahan I am sorry that happened to you. Thanks for the Offset Hotline phone # 1-800-304-3107. I called and it didn’t say I had an offset but I wonder if maybe my husband does. Of course it said that could update daily so I have a another phone number to call and check daily.February 9, 2013 at 5:24 pm #6232
I received a DD date today of 2/13 and it says I may have an offset but it does not say how much. It still shows my full refund amount being deposited. Does that mean they did not take anything?February 9, 2013 at 5:39 pm #6234

How long have you guys had this debt before they decided to take it out of your refunds? I wonder if we can call them and get some kind of payment plan going.February 9, 2013 at 10:25 pm #6268
Well for me, my debt was paid last year. I don’t know why they took this money out of my refund. I have a record of it being paid, but I don’t know where I put it at the moment. Do you guys think I can get a record from my payroll department? Also, if I truly do have an offset, shouldn’t I have received some kind of letter and shouldn’t my debt be reflected on the offset hotline? It never was and still isn’t. It’s saying NO DEBTS.February 10, 2013 at 2:46 pm #6350
Thanks for all the responses. I checked again, it doesn’t say any amount. I guess they took the whole thing. Oh well. I don’t understand why it just didn’t say it was taking all of it. Why would it say my refund would be issued on 2/13 if there was no refund to issue???February 11, 2013 at 4:43 am #7734
you cant set up a payment plan, i did that last month and he gave me a 90 plan…but now they say they arnt allowed to cut a check if you owe them anything….. i got the debt from last year and they took exactly what i owed and gnna send the restFebruary 9, 2014 at 3:15 pm #19816
Can you post what yours says?February 12, 2014 at 9:54 pm #20590
So here’s my question… I have an offset , but when I check WMR it never told me I had one?? All my taxes have been taken and that’s ok , but why wasn’t I informed until I seen the teas 499 tax refund on my bank statement onlineFebruary 14, 2014 at 1:43 pm #20696
I have an offset coming but when I looked at my transcripts, it says the entire amount will be refunded. No mention of an offset. Any chances I’m actually getting a refund?February 18, 2014 at 12:13 pm #20808
Did you ever get an update or a refund?March 7, 2014 at 6:54 pm #21214
An offset was applied to my refund for 3 years straight. They do take all of your tax return and will continue to take it until what you owe is paid in full unless the amount you’re expecting is more than your offset. If this is the case, good luck getting the remaining balance. Last year was my final payoff and I have yet to see the $350 I had coming. If you check with the “Where’s My Refund” site, even though it may say when you’re getting the refund, below the status paragraph you might see – “Please read the following information related to your tax situation: Tax Topic 203″- if so, your refund has been offset for the debt.
