I think my income tax refund will be offset?
Asked by: jmlcpl
After I filed our income taxes (Feb 3rd) I found out that due to my husband’s defaulted student loans our refund may be offset. Shoud I go ahead and file an injured spouse form or wait to receive a notice from the IRS?
I did check the offset phone number and before I filed, it said he had no debts. He had been paying on the loan rehabilitation plan, but we got behind due to circumstances. We didn’t receive a notice of the offset this year, so we didn’t think it would be taken. I checked the number again today and of course, now it says he has one debt… the student loans. I know we need to pay the debt, but with one income and two kids, we could really use the money.
