    Have any injured spousers who recently received their 2nd offset letter for the stimulus been able to contact the IRS and speak to someone? If so, what did the IRS say are the next steps, if any?

    Informed delivery says my tax return is in the mail today!!!

  • HeatherD posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 2 days, 17 hours ago

    So the certified letter that I received from IRS says that they cannot consider my IS because my refund was released on June 3, 2020. What the frick? I received my portion of the tax refund! What is going on at the IRS!!! I haven’t received a second offset letter, the TOPS line hasn’t changed and I still don’t have my portion of the stimulus.…[Read more]

    So wmr says my tax return was mailed yesterday. Shows no tax topics related to my return so I am assuming that my IS form was processed correctly. I am hoping it shows up this week. Fingers crossed!!

    • @Stacy CONGRATULATIONS 🎉🎉!! Now for this friggin stimulus!

    • I’m curious what’s gonna happen with that cause I mailed my IS in after for 2018 but filed electronically for 2019. Once I get my refund, I’ll try to call the IRS to see about my stimulus. Offset line still shows no change :-(

  • HeatherD posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 3 days, 23 hours ago

    My informed delivery shows a certified mail from the IRS. Since certified mail from the IRS is never good, I’m guessing this is another offset letter. Did anyone get a new offset letter certified mail?

    • My second offset letter came with the regular mail. Not certified. Did you ever receive a second letter?

    • @Stacy I haven’t received a second offset letter yet. I wonder what we are getting certified from them now. I have to wait til I get home from work to see what it is.

    To all my IS out there who are still waiting for their part of the stimulus money, I finally was able to talk to an IRS Rep after being disconnected 3 times and 4 times getting the automated message which tells you that they are experiencing a high call volume and cannot accept my call at this time. I even pressed the prompt for the department…[Read more]

  • HeatherD posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 1 week, 1 day ago

    @robcry2020 Did you get your portion of the stimulus yet? Still nothing has changed on TOPS on my spouses name and no stimulus yet for me. Just curious if anyone out there has gotten their portion and nothing changed on the TOPS line for them?

    • @HeatherD nope nothing at all but another offset letter. I give up at this point because it keeps circling back to the same thing a glitch that is not fixed.

    • I got another offset letter too :-(

    • I got another offset letter too :-(

    • I wonder how long this will take to fix? I would hate to try to claim it on taxes next year because it is something unheard of and will result in another mess waiting to happen!

    • @Robcry2020 @Stacy I haven’t gotten stimulus or another offset letter so I guess mine is just forgotten about totally? I have no idea what to do at this point.

    • I was going to call the IRS today but time got away from me and I have my hands filled with trying to get kids in order 😕

    • The IRS updated their FAQ on the 4th n it says it will be automatically sent in Sept.

    • I was gonna post the screenshot but this won’t let me upload pics.

    • Thank you @Stacy I suppose I will just wait the month out and hope for the best.

    • @robcry2020 @stacy
      Today, I got another offset letter. I don’t understand how some received direct deposits while others got another offset. There’s no logic to this. It’s frustrating. How can they offset the same funds twice?!? I’m so done.

    • @Angie they had applied the funds to my husband CS arrears. I mean the entire stimulus. I guess I just have to wait and see the outcome.

  • HeatherD posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 1 week, 3 days ago

    @Robcry2020 I’m in Louisiana. Does yours still say offset the total amount of the TOPS line? What child support portal can I check to see if it was offset again? My spouses still says offset for the full amount for 4-15; the date never changed but it still says offset for the full amount for the tax return too and I got my portion of that.…[Read more]

    • @HeatherD whoever owes the debt i.e. your spouse can check the ocse website it shows payments made to the custodial parent. My TOps still show full amount dated 9/4 under hubby’s social. The saga just continues. I just don’t want until I file taxes bc I fear that it will cause yet another screw up on my refunds!

  • crystal posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 1 week, 4 days ago

    I seen on other IS forum that people are getting a 2nd offset letter dated 9/4 full their whole stimulus check again?

  • CaliB posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 1 week, 5 days ago

    So my stimulus check came in the mail. It 304 dollars less than it should have been for whatever reason. I don’t even want to bother calling the IRS to find out why

  • Nicole posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 1 week, 5 days ago

    I FINALLY received my portion of the stimulus that has been sitting in oblivion since April. It was direct deposited to my account and I received the full amount that I should have gotten (minus my husbands portion that went to child support). Hold tight everyone, it’s coming!

  • Alexandria posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 1 week, 5 days ago

    Ok every1 please help!. The deposit i recieved the other day was only 496 dollars. Iv tried calling irs and got the rudest person ever when i call what do i ask them about them stimulus. She said she didnt even see the amount mentioned above. And also i remebered they took our stimulus in 3 offsets one for 1700 one for 496 and one for 1204 all…[Read more]

    • Hey Alexandria just ask them why did you only receive $496 and what the other offset was for. You can also called Tops and listened to the automated system with a list off the offsets when you enter your husband ss #.

    • MariaSAH. I have called and only the one offset for 1700 and the one from our refund for like 324. So they took off my portion but only deposit the 496. Iv checked cs account nothing posted besides his 1700. Im so confused im praying it comes in mail monday or tuesday. & OFCOURSE they deposit the smaller amount first. I believe they offset it the…[Read more]

    • Alexandra i believe that they split it in half in my case me and my husband was suppose to get 3400 they split that in half 1700 for him 1700 for me they was suppose to send his half but they sent 2200 i recieved 1,192 so technically they only owe me 500 did they send you any money at all or did they take it all

    • @ ola. Yea they sent 496 of the 1700 they waa suppose to send us. Back in april they took it in 3offsets. One for 1700 one for 496 and one for 1204 all equalling to 3400 what we woulda got. But still havent got tbe 1204 dollars its bs. Its my $ why send the almost 500 but not the rest. Offset line only list 1700 now.

  • CaliB posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 1 week, 6 days ago

    Hello everyone my informed delivery shows what seems to be a check coming from the IRS today? I will update you all when it arrives! Btw I am still waiting on my tax refund!

  • MariaSAH posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 1 week, 6 days ago

    I got my check!!! 💲💲💲Finally!! Thank God! 🙏🏼🙌🏼🎉🎉🎊🎊

  • HeatherD posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 1 week, 6 days ago

    Mine still says the offset for the full amount of the stimulus on TOPS for the date of 4-15. Does anyone else still have the same? I also ask that if/when you get your stimulus you post. I checked my informed delivery and there is no stimulus for me yet. I hope we get it soon too @Stacy

    • @HeatherD my situation is as follows:
      2018 taxes:
      1. mailed in IS form after my refund was offset due to husband’s cs
      2. Husband has no income so I received my full refund once they finally processed my IS form
      3. 2019 taxes were not yet filed when stimulus hit. F/A 2019 on July 15th so I am still in my “11 week” processing time
      4. TOPS line…[Read more]

    • @Stacy I got my portion of the refund. They received the IS form the day before the shutdown so I got caught up in the glitch. Even though I got my portion of the refund, it still says the full portion on the TOPS line, that never changed. I had to stay on them about getting the refund, but it did finally come a few months ago. Now just…[Read more]

    • @Stacy and @HeatherD what states are ya’ll in? I’m in Arkansas so it always takes time to get any mail.

    • @HeatherD my offset on TOP still list full amount but different date for 9/4.

    • I’m in MO

    • @vonzetta I know I have asked you this before but I am seeing different reports regarding the issue that robcry2020, HeatherD and I are in. I am seeing in groups on FB that ppl still showing the full amount listed is getting offset AGAIN! I have seen 3 ppl say that but then I also see ppl getting their stimulus. Is there a second glitch and are…[Read more]

    • Huh. Are there people saying that their stimulus check was offset again? Is everyone who shows the same full amount getting offset again?

    • @Stacy and @HeatherD you guys could check the child support portal online to see if it was offset again.

    • I checked wmr and it says my tax refund will be mailed out on Sept 14th. Shows no tax topics so looks like my IS form was processed correctly so with that, now I really wonder when I am going to get my stimulus. Hopefully next week if they mailed it out yesterday

    • Is it me or does it not seem like the ones who are all mailing IS forms AFTER filing taxes, the ones whose offsets are really screwed with the stimulus 🤔🤔

    • I’m seeing that pattern too. I mailed mine in after in 2018. Sent mine electronically this year

    • @robcry2020 so a theory on an is group on fb for the ppl still showing whole amount of stimulus. The theory is that since it is not fixed yet, the system “offset” it again this way it does not go past the 6 month mark from the first stimulus in order to give them more time to fix it. All I know is I don’t know what to think and I can’t call the…[Read more]

    • It is a offset glitch again and it has to do with how they received your IS form. They are catching some good while others are ending up back in the same situation as before. I can push through checks I know are good and before I hit the send button the computer or someone else has kicked them back out. This is draining and frustrating even on my end.

    • @vonzetta does it has something to do with how the system reads the IRS code? I know those that mailed it in had a 971 code I believe and those that e-filed has a 590 code for their IS forms?

    • @vonzetta last question. When you said the system catches some good. Are all the people who mailed in IRS forms getting a second offset? I talked to the IRS and they said that they were sending the whole stimulus on 9/4. And that was with my information they took over the phone.

    • @robcry2020 no not all but majority unless a worker physically push the offset through which requires reading and 15 minutes of confirmation which as you can imagine everybody will not do.

    • @vonzetta so if we got offset again, what are we supposed to do? Do we have to call to get our file flagged or is this going to be fixed at some point? It is extremely difficult for me to call the IRS cause I don’t have very good cell service at home.

    • I seen on other IS forum that people are getting a 2nd offset letter dated 9/4 full their whole stimulus check again?

    • @crystal yes that’s true I got my letter today. Now I wonder if this time child support will give me my money but they are so quick to take I doubt it!

    • I received my offset letter today too. This is so ridiculous. @robcry2020 have you called the irs again by chance?

    • @robcry2020 – yes mailed IS form after filing taxes. Still waiting and I just sent a scathing letter to my representatives office to forward to TAS. Worse decision I ever made is getting them involved.

    • @Stacy I am going to call tomorrow first thing in the morning. I am busy homeschooling and can’t wait for an hour until tomorrow morning 😕😕

    • @robcry2020 what is the phone number and promos you use to get to a live person and also how long are you usually on hold for?

    • Meant to say prompts not promos lol.

    • The number is 18008291040. I can’t remember prompts just always push the number for “other questions “

  • Stacy posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 1 week, 6 days ago

    For everyone who is still showing 1 offset for full amount of stimulus on TOPS line with a date of 9-4, please comment here if/when you get your stimulus. I hope we get ours soon!!

    • @Stacy I have a similar situation to yours.
      1. My 2019 taxes were F/A on 1/30 ish this year. It was offset to husband’s CS arrears.
      2. Mailed in IS form and it took 3 months to process but I got my full refund back bc I had the sole income.
      3. Stimulus was fully offset and CS dispersed the funds.
      4. It was never 2 offsets on TOP line…[Read more]

    • @robcry2020 was your hubby’s cs debt more than the stimulus? My hubby’s debt is more than the stimulus payment. I’m wondering if maybe that’s why ours did not drop off?? Just a thought.

    • @robcry2020 Stimulus was fully offset and disbursed in my case too. The TOPS line says fully offset – 1 offset for the tax refund and 1 offset for the stimulus payment and neither has changed any. I can’t get anyone on the phone with IRS to tell me anything though. I always seem to get the person that has a generic script they read. No check…[Read more]

  • MariaSAH posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 2 weeks ago

    Good morning everyone! I checked my informed delivery and it appears that a check from the IRS is there!! Once the mail come and I confirm receipt, I will let you know!!!!

  • Angie posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 2 weeks ago

    Happy for everyone who received their payments. The only info updated on the offset line for me was the date. It still says the full amount but now dated 9/4. Offset was for CS. I’m still waiting for something.

    • Same thing happened with mine. I called the IRS and they said that the whole stimulus was mailed out 😡😡😡

    • still waiting on my IS claim to be processed and EIP. going on 6 months now, just hopeless. TAS is no help at all. Advocate won’t call me back and I’ve left a message for her supervisor. Any suggestions?

  • Cici posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 2 weeks ago

    Still haven’t received a check and I don’t have an information if I am even going to receive one. I checked my mail and there’s nothing informes delivery. I don’t think o am going to getting one.

    • @Cici did you check offset line? TOPS.

    • Cici replied 2 weeks ago

      How do you check that

    • Cici replied 2 weeks ago

      I called the irs and they could tell me anything and I called tops and it was just an automated system

    • Call 18003043107

    • Cici replied 2 weeks ago

      I called and I couldn’t get to anybody. Thank you!

    • That # was the offset number you press the # 7 1 1 and 2 then you need to enter your social and see if you have any offsets…then call back and enter your hubby’s social to see what offset is under his social

    • Cici replied 2 weeks ago

      Okay I check and there’s no offset

  • Ann posted an update in the group Injured Spouse 2 weeks ago

    Well they told me my check will be mailed out 9/4 but I received it in the mail today good luck to everyone I’m outta of here until next year✌

    • Same here! What a relief! Finally something done for all of us! See you next year!
