    Yep..they took my entire $ 9500 return on Friday. Luckily we filed married joint and don’t live in a community property state so my husband filed injured spouse and were told we should get most if not all back because I paid no taxes this year and only made $ 2900. You can look up the IRS fmr number to see if they are going to offset your refund because if they can they will and they can take all of it if you owe more than your getting.

    Yes, definitely! Of u owe, they will take it.

    My husband says, before you file, call them and tell them you were unemployed most of last year. They should send you a letter via email, fax, or mail excluding you from getting your return intercepted. Sign it and send it back, then file taxes. My hubby owed Student loans, but did ^ , but is receiving his entire refund. Hope this helps!

    yes! if u owe any type of educational loans, child support etc they will take whatever u owe..happened to a friend of mine. they took her whole refund. (owed taxes for 2010) call the offset hotline (automated system) to find out. when u call its going to say dept of treasury can’t remember the number since ive called several hotlines regarding my refund. hope this helps!
