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.
Refund amount same
Hi. I owe for federal student loans. When I filed our taxes this year, I filed injured spouse on behalf of my husband (married filing jointly). WMR shows a deposit date of 2/22 and that our refund amount is the same as what came back after filing. My husband is the only income. Will we really be getting the full amount or will it be less? I called the offset line and it says the only payment on record was from March of last year.
