Tax Refund-Any1 get theirs offset/garnished?
Good to see the board is still doing well!
I have a question for you all, please.
I got this msg on ‘Where’s my refund’ site;
Refund Status Results
Please select this button to print your Refund Results for your records.
Your tax refund is scheduled to be direct deposited on March 16, 2007. If your refund is not credited to your account by March 21, 2007, check with your bank to find out if it has been received. Please wait until March 21, 2007 before you contact us again because we are unable to take any action until then.
HERE-> Please read the following information related to your tax situation:
* Tax Topic 203 – Failure to Pay Child Support, Federal Non-Tax and State Income Tax Obligations
Your refund may be reduced to pay a past due obligation such as child support, another federal agency debt, or state income tax. If this applies to you, the Financial Management Service, who issues IRS refunds, will send you a notice informing you of any offset they have made. The details of the debt are not provided to the IRS. Please do not call us to inquire about the details because we will not be able to answer your questions. Instead, direct any questions you have about the offset or debt to the agency identified on the notice.
I am wondering did any of you get your refund and have the part where I put ‘HERE->’ and still got your refund anyway?
I am trying to figure out if they put that there because they know I am being offset/garnished or if they put that at the bottom of your refund deposit notice as a disclaimer for everyone. I don’t recall it being there last year, but maybe I just don’t recall, damn tree’s making me forget stuff lol.
I called the FMS (financial management services) about the defaulted student loans but they say it ‘may’ be garnished. Whatever nonsense that is, like uh tell me yes or no dammit lol.
Anyway, thanks for any reply’s!!
