Can social security take tax refund?

Asked by: vdlicata 469 views YA Discussion

My benefits were stopped then I received a bill for my over payment, I filed a waiver to waive the over payment, so i’m not obligated to make any payments on the over payments until a decision is reached, can or will the Ira still take my tax refund even though I don’t have to start paying the over payment right now?
they stopped my benefits i dont owe taxes

    Of course.

    The IRS and Social Security Administration are branches of the SAME government….

    No the SSA will not take your IRS refund. When the ruling goes against you they will freeze your bank accounts

    it would seem so
    if you owed taxes 15% of your SS could be offset
    so if you were overpaid SS, any refund might be open to offset
    however, it is more likely that your SS benefits will be delayed until the overpayment is absorbed

    Until the SSA makes a decision on your waiver they will not flag you with FMS for offset of any tax refunds. If they deny your waiver request, any tax refunds can and will be offset until the debt is paid in full.
