Can I get my Tax Return back after it has been Garnished?

Asked by: sfbs 372 views YA Discussion

I received a letter in the mail that both my state and federal refunds were garnished because of a student loan. I was not aware of this and had no way of appealing the garnishment. I am currently jobless, with no money….I was counting on my refund money to start a business. Is there a way I could get my money back from the debt collecter and make payment plans outside of the return?

    That will be up to Sallie Mae, aka FedLoan. Start your research on their website http://www.myfedloan.org/

    If offsetting your tax refund would cause an undue hardship, Sallie May may temporarily stop collection actions and even refund the tax offset to you.

    No, your student loans were guaranteed by the Government & they want their money. Not government backed student loans are never offset by the IRS.
