My tax refund due to student loans
« on: March 02, 2019, 09:40:26 AM »
Hello, very new here and needed some advice, my state taxes were offset this year due to my university student loan. Should I expect my federal taxes to be offset as well? I used the check my refund status at IRS.gov and I had a note that read: “please note, your refund may be reduced due to child support.... so on and so forth” does everyone get this “note”? It says I should expect my refund by March 5, 2019 but the note is right after. I’m just looking for some answers, this is 4 days away in which I will wait to see what happens, but I’m really confused. Thanks

If you're in default, you likely will see it offset (especially due to that notice on WMR). Read this: https://thecollegeinvestor.com/20755/stopping-tax-offsets-due-student-loan-debt/
